The practice of acupuncture shall not include laser acupuncture, osteopathic manipulative treatment, chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, or surgery. Effective: July 15, 2014 History: Amended 2014 Ky. Acts ch. 24, sec. 2, effective July 15, 2014. -- Created 2006 Ky. Acts ch. 249, sec. 2, effective July 12, 2006. Legislative Research Commission Note (7/12/2006). 2006 Ky. Acts ch. 249, sec. 2, subsec. (3), read: ""Council" means the Acupuncture Advisory Council under the State Board of Medical Licensure." However, 2006 Ky. Acts ch. 249, sec. 3, created the Acupuncture Advisory Committee, not the Acupuncture Advisory Council. The Reviser of Statutes has changed the references to "Council" to "Committee" in codifying this statute, under the authority of KRS 7.136(1)(h).
