On the last day of the conference, Dr BJ Bhattacharya (Kolkata) read papers based on autism. He said that better results can be seen with acupuncture in the cases related to neurological disorder. “If a patient suffering from paralysis is given acupuncture along with physiotherapy, the possibility of him/her coming to normal life increases with a fast pace.”

He said that acupuncture centres are operated in three government hospitals of Kolkata where good results are also seen. The infrastructure cost is quite less in acupuncture for which it should get recognition. It ultimately gives benefit to the patients.
