Utah Chiropractors - Acupuncture Training and Education

In the state of Utah, in order for chiropractors to practice acupuncture legally in their offices, they need to attend a 100 course as shown below.

Once this course has been attended the chiropractor must pass the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners Acupuncture Exam, prior to practicing acupuncture in the state of Utah.

If you have decided to have a chiropractor administer acupuncture treatment, ask to see their certificate of passing the National Board of Chiropractic Acupuncture Exam, just because the chiropractor has taken the 100 course does not legally allow the chiropractor to administer acupuncture in the State of Utah.

Utah Acupuncture Licensing Act - 58-72-501
Medical Doctors or Chiropractic Physicians who chose to practice acupuncture shall
represent themselves as medical doctors or chiropractic physicians practicing acupuncture and not as licensed acupuncturists.

Utah Acupuncture Licensing Act - 58-72-304
A chiropractic physician may not claim to be a licensed acupuncturist without
the acupuncturist licensure.

Utah Chiropractic Physician Practice Act Rule  - R156-73-501
It is illegal for a chiropractor to advertise as an acupuncturist, L.Ac. or
Dipl. Ac. either verbally or in print.

Once again, you should read about the differences between the different educational programs for acupuncture education and training before allowing a health care professional to administer acupuncture treatment. Link
