Practice by Others
A licensed physician (i.e. medical doctor or osteopath) may practice
acupuncture in Kentucky. There is no specific training required
for a medical or osteopathic doctor to practice acupuncture.
Chiropractors may not practice acupuncture.
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.
