Acupuncture has become one of the most popular – and accepted – alternative therapies within the United States. An estimated 15 million Americans and 1 billion people worldwide have tried acupuncture last year. It’s offered in many chronic pain clinics, and is covered by some insurers and managed care organizations.
The World Health Organization recommends it for more than 40 conditions as diverse as asthma and chronic pain. The Food and Drug Administration regulates acupuncture needles as medical devices, the same as it does surgical tools. And in 1997, a National Institutes of Health panel found acupuncture to be an acceptable treatment for many pain conditions, including fibromyalgia and general musculoskeletal pain.
