Study for Albertans with Pain and/or Mental Health concerns:
We’re looking for patients 14-55 years old who suffer from pain or mental health issues to examine the effectiveness of using Complementary and Alternative Medicine interventions such as Acupuncture and Mind-Body Exercises to treat or manage these health concerns.
Participants will be asked to take part in:
1. Free acupuncture treatments over 1-2 months and/or free Baduanjin Qigong classes
2. Average 4 surveys：1 at the initial visit; 1 at the 6th and 12th acupuncture treatment; 1 post-treatment over the phone or online.
We will use treatment protocols for pain management and mental health that have been developed and validated in an interventional research project led by the University of Calgary. Previous interventional studies have suggested that CAM services may be beneficial for the management of various pain and mental health issues.
Participants will not need to pay for the interventions they receive in SHIP.
