Acupuncture and Chiropractic should play a bigger role in pain management, the FDA recommends.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in its "FDA Education Blueprint for Health Care Providers Involved in the Management or Support of Patients with Pain," says that nonpharmacologic therapies, including acupuncture and chiropractic, "can play an important role in managing pain, particularly musculoskeletal pain and chronic pain" and that "health care provicers should be knowledgeable about the range of available therapies, when they may be helpful, and when they should be used as part of a multidisciplinary approach to pain management."

This makes a lot of sense in the context of our widespread health and economic problems connected to the prescription opioid epidemic.
