Acupuncture Improves Exercise Tolerance in Heart Patients, German Study Finds

Acupuncture can improve exercise tolerance in patients suffering from chronic heart failure, according to new research from Germany. Needles don’t increase the heart’s pump function, but they seem to have an influence on skeletal muscle strength and thus can increase the walk distance that heart patients can cover. The results of the clinical study have been published in the medical journal “Heart.”
