A meta analysis reviewed several medical studies worldwide to evaluate the effects of acupuncture on the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. The result of 43 studies were deemed to be of a high enough quality to be included in the meta-analysis.
The results of those studies showed that acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and is highly recommended due to the absence of toxic side effects. It was determined that acupuncture is especially effective at improving the quality of life of patients who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis.
