I am an RN & though I haven't had it done have known several nurses that did have it & said it does work. *4U
Thanks for writing. I have a friend that had sciatica who had it done, and was pleased. I got the name of the acupuncturist from her. It will certainly be a new experience. :-)
I say go for it Newipswich. My experiences of acupuncture have been all good and well worth the expense involved. Good luck.
I'm glad to hear that you've been happy with acupuncture. The gal said I should know by 4 treatments (2 each week for 2 weeks), if it's going to help any. Thanks for writing!
I think that is being optimistic but, of course, each person, their problems & reactions to treatment are very different from one another. Sometimes expense is an issue which forces one to give up sooner than they should. I do sincerely hope it works for you - it is not an unpleasant experience.
Have x-d-i-l that swears by it....she has a lot of back problems and used to be in pain all the time.
Thanks! That's encouraging! I have made an appt. for mid-Oct. Will give it a try.
I haven't had acupuncture done, but I do go to the chiropractor before the MD. Don't know if that would be helpful with degenerative disease, but a reputable chiropractor will take x-rays and tell you if he/she can't help. Good luck, back pain is awful. Marji
I went to chiropractor many times with no relief. Have been going to a Pain Solutions Dr. who actually ordered the MRI's - lower & upper. Been going for massage weekly, which helps a little.
Getting kind of expensive, trying to find some help.
