Another piece of research into the Lightning Process has been published this month, adding to the growing evidence base for the efficacy of the Lightning Process intervention.
A team from Kings College London and London Metropolitan University have published a Systematic Review of the current research into the Lightning Process. This type of research is considered to be the most valuable type of research. It examines all the current data published in studies on the Lightning Process and colates all that information into a detailed overview, drawing conclusions about the quality of the evidence presented and the usefulness of the Lightning Process for various conditions. It’s a very important step for any intervention to have the scientific evaluation this type of research provides and helps to inform doctors and patients which conditions are most likely to benefit from taking the Lightning Process training.
This review published in 2020 by the journal Explore identified these highlights:
- This is the first systematic review of the Lightning Process.
- The systematic review found a variance in the quality of studies from good to fair and in reported patient outcomes.
- All studies evidenced a level of benefit from the intervention, commonly for the majority of participants.
and concluded that there was an emerging body of evidence supporting the efficacy of the LP for many participants with fatigue, physical function, pain, anxiety and depression.
