Medical acupuncture is a modern adaptation of the ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture.
It is defined as a therapeutic technique that involves the insertion of fine needles into certain points across the body to encourage healing and pain relief.
Medical acupuncture is practiced by healthcare practitioners and is generally regarded as part of conventional medicine.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) specifically recommends the use of acupuncture for lower back pain.
