The purpose

The investigators will study acupuncture in a pilot, randomized controlled trial (RCT) in the emergency department (ED) of a large, tertiary care hospital, Abbott Northwestern Hospital (ANW). The investigators suggest that the proposed intervention - provision of acupuncture in the ED as an alternative to usual ED care - will reduce pain and interrupt the trajectory (and potential cycle) of medication misuse by providing an alternative at a critical point of contact within the healthcare system, potentially disrupting the pathway from ED visit to opioid usage after discharge.
