Is acupuncture contraindicated with multiple sclerosis?

I would like to help you with your question concerning acupuncture and multiple sclerosis.

No. Acupuncture is not contraindicated for people who have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Acupuncture is actually quite beneficial in these cases. When I was in medical school, I was trained at a clinic that used acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to treat people with MS. These individuals received acupuncture treatments up to three times per week. The results were very positive.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you would like more information.
