I tried acupuncture after the 2nd treatment I hurt so bad had to sit in my c ar for 30 minutes before I could drive home. Dr who done it said that should not happen and would not do it anymore.

I tried acupuncture every week for a few months, by a trained MD. It wasn't bad. I had a very open mind about it and was receptive to the idea that it would work. Sad to say, it didn't. I've also gone to a chiropractor 2-3x/week for many months, and that didn't help, either. Sigh.... Frustrating.

I had acupuncture about 40 years ago because of pain in my knees (I was born with deformed knees and back). It took my pain away then.

I imagine that acupuncture, or even acupressure could reduce the amount of pain you feel.

Ditto to what Linda just said. I was going to say the identical thing. Make sure you go to physiotherapist trained to do it. Then there is no extra charge, unlike going to an acupuncture clinic.

@ kitty 2016 I have acupuncture twice a week. It works for about 2 days. It brings my pain level to 3 or 4. Instead of 7 or 8.
