Abstract

Interest in the use of acupuncture in people and in animals continues to grow, both from the general public and from academic institutions, including many leading western medical and veterinary teaching hospitals. This is despite ongoing debate regarding the traditional concepts of acupuncture and their translations versus a western medical approach centred on the principles of evidence-based medicine (EBM). This article focuses on the EBM aspects of acupuncture and how it works physiologically, and the use of acupuncture for pain management.
