Acupuncture can play a positive role in multi modal pain management and has a very high safety profile. There are still many controversies, esp. with respect of the traditional aspects of Chinese Medicine and how it is expressed in the West. Western medical acupuncture has moved toward an Evidence Based Acupuncture and the West.

Dietrich Graf von Schweinitz BSc DVM MRCVS Certified Vet Acupuncturist (IVAS): I qualified at the Univ. of Georgia in 1982, practiced in Maryland until 1986, moved to the UK and founded an equine practice in Guildford in 1989. My acupuncture interest began in the USA and I became certified in vet acupuncture through the International Vet. Acupuncture Society (IVAS) in 1998. I was a past President of the Association of British Veterinary Acupuncturists and continue as its Education Director; I also served on the IVAS Ed. Committee and Board of Directors. Presently I have a referral acupuncture practice along with teaching commitments. I conducted and published pioneering research in the thermographic monitoring of autonomic responses to acupuncture in horses with chronic pain syndromes and in needle electromyographic recordings of myofascial trigger points in horses (Acupunc in Med, & Vet Clinics of NA, Equine Practice). More recently I authored the papers “Electro-acupuncture for nerve injury in the horse” in Equine Vet Educ. 2014, and “Acupuncture for pain control” in Robinson & Sprayberry’s Current Therapy in Equine Medicine, 7th ed., 2015.
