Practice by Others

Medical doctors, osteopaths, podiatrists and physician assistants may practice acupuncture in Wisconsin without any additional specific training.

Acupuncture is not within the scope of practice of chiropractors.

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.
