A study in Nottingham University in the UK compared the effect of different acupuncture types on quality of life in secondary progressive MS.
The two types are Chinese Medical and Minimal Acupuncture. The study focused on fatigue and general health. Minimal acupuncture results showed minor improvement in general health, but no other differences were found.
The study was small, and therefore not conclusive. It does appear acupuncture is safe for progressive MSers.
