Practice by Others
Medical doctors and osteopaths may practice acupuncture in Indiana without any specific training.
Chiropractors, dentists and podiatrists must have at least 200 hours of
acupuncture instruction in order to practice acupuncture.
Acupuncture is not within the scope of practice of a physician assistant.
NOTE: Look for a physician with
formal training in the practice of acupuncture. Acupuncture and
Oriental medicine is an art and a science that takes years to master.
While any licensed physician can stick needles into you, for a positive
experience and results, find an acupuncturist with experience treating a similar condition (with acupuncture) to what you have.
