Acupuncture is one of four treatments to be recommended for the treatment of chronic pain by a government health care body: The National Institute for health and clinical excellence (NICE).
It is recommended to have treatment by a qualified and registered health professional. The British Acupuncture Council is the leading regulatory body for Traditional Acupuncture in the UK. All members have completed degree level training and abide by strict professional conduct and are listed on the register of the Professional standards Authority for Health and Social Care.
Around a third of the populations may be affected by chronic pain and may be unable to work or be suffering with depression. The new recommendations cover conditions like fibromyalgia, chronic neck and back pain.
