Abstract

Peripheral neuropathy is one of the most common neurological complications of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and continues to impact people living with HIV/AIDS. 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.
