DescriptionJames Edwards has seen his final year dissertation work at Bangor University published in Acupuncture in Medicine. James, now 23 and studying dentistry, researched the effectiveness of acupuncture for nerve pain in the face. He compared treatment outcomes for acupuncture against drug therapy and surgery.

His study showed that it was less risky, less expensive and less stressful to the people having this treatment option, though the small study size limited James’ ability to definitively prove that acupuncture was better than other options.
