American authors have identified the most common reasons that people seek acupuncture in the USA. They conducted a nationwide cross-sectional survey among 419 acupuncturists to investigate the top 10 and top 99 acupuncture indications in private clinics. The top 10 indications were found to be: lower back pain, depression, anxiety, headache, arthritis, allergies, general pain, female infertility, insomnia, neck pain and frozen shoulder. Among the top 99 indications, treatments for pain and mental health issues (especially mood disorders) were in the greatest demand. Immune system dysfunction, gastrointestinal disease, gynaecology and neurology also represented popular reasons for seeking treatment.
