Acupuncture expert witnesses are skilled in a practice of medicine involving the insertion of acupuncture needles into specific points of the body. Acupuncturist experts utilize this technique to alleviate the symptoms of numerous ailments, most notably to reduce levels of pain experienced by a patient. As a unique area of the medical field, certain issues may arise that can lead to litigation, such as medical malpractice, unforeseen side effects, medical billing on acupuncture treaments, injury to a patient, or failing to properly advise the patient of his or her treatment, as well as any other type of medical error.
Since acupuncture may be used for various applications, acupuncture expert witnesses may have a background in such medical practices as anesthesiology, pain management, Chinese medicine or other related areas. Acupuncturists treat patients who are often undergoing other forms of painful medical care, including chemotherapy and the physical therapy involved with treating different types of brain injuries and neuromuscular disorders. Traumatic brain injuries (T.B.I.) may result in severe headaches that can potentially be treated via the use of acupuncture. Acupuncturist experts also practice pain prevention and pain management for various types of back pain, nausea, neck pain, and different types of pain associated with cancer. As with any form of pain medicine, the patient should be properly informed so as to have realistic expectations regarding the amount of potential pain still experienced after receiving treatment. Acupuncture is also known as a means for fertility treatment.
