Traditional Chinese Medicine and Human Immunodeficiency Virus‑Associated Neuropathy

Joyce K. Anastasi, Michelle Chang, Bernadette Capili and Nigel Dawes

The pain associated with peripheral neuropathy can be severe and debilitating. Most pharmacological agents are inadequate in symptom management and are accompanied by adverse side‑effects. Acupuncture and moxibustion offer treatment approaches that can reduce HIV symptoms and/or the side‑effects of anti‑retroviral therapy and improve patients’ quality of life.
