The role of acupuncture in the treatment of urologic conditions
Although acupuncture is a primary treatment for urologic disorders in China, this is not always the case throughout the world. The purpose of this paper is to expose the benefits of acupuncture as both a primary and complementary treatment. Specific treatments for multiple urologic conditions are presented in this paper as a guideline. It is important to realize that there are additional useful treatments that belong to other acupuncture types and traditions. In our experience, acupuncture has been a useful treatment modality for urologic conditions. Patients have responded positively, having choices in their treatment with a modality that is associated with minimal side effects and knowing that traditional urologic treatments are available if needed.
