I have decided to give accupuncture another try. I know that while I am there, and for at least a short time after it is helping. I have gone 3 times so far. He touched my shoulder, and the pain was horrible, he put the needle in, and touched my shoulder the same way, and the pain was almost gone, I was also able to turn my neck further with the needle in. He said that he is only going to work on my rt shoulder, and that if I am not better in 2 months by 25-50% then I should stop. I am seeing him 2 times a week. He said, which I have heard, that it is an accumulative affect. Some friends have gone to him and swear that he has helped, one person I know was told he needed a knee replacement, another was told his shoulder was bone on bone, both have been helped by him. I am hoping he helps me. But am wondering if anyone here has had success with accupuncture?
