What can acupuncture treat?
In the West acupuncture is primarily used for treating pain caused by musculoskeletal problems, although it may often be used to treat illness such as irritable bowel syndrome or asthma and has been effective in the treatment of headaches, migraine, dental pain and lower back pain.  Its use has also been evaluated in the treatment of nausea (early morning sickness, post-anaesthetic nausea and the nausea caused by powerful anti-cancer drugs).  There is evidence that acupuncture might help improve and accelerate recovery after a stroke and assist in the withdrawal period from drug addiction.
