This is why you should NEVER go to a chiropractor, M.D., Doctor, or physical therapist for acupuncture. They aren't qualified, they aren't credentialed, They don't have the proper education, and they don't have the clinical experience (they take a weekend warrior course from a chiropractor). In other words, they don't have a clue what they're doing! If you go to them, you're putting your health and your life at risk.
I can't stress this enough. If the person performing acupuncture was not educated in acupuncture (ie. has a degree), does not hold a state license for acupuncture, and does not have a board certification from the NCCAOM, then THEY'RE NOT AN ACUPUNCTURIST!
