Acupuncture is now widely accepted to help dramatically in many types of muscular-skeletal problems. It reduces inflammation and encourages repair of the soft tissue, whilst also dealing with any underlying weaknesses of the body. Whether the problem is straightforward wear and tear due to age or overuse, or injury due to sport, pain is usually reduced and recovery assisted. As a treatment it has been endorsed by NICE, and is frequently recommend by GPs.
Treatment often includes massage and heat therapy as well as needles, and is relaxing and pleasant. Electroacupuncture is also used in some cases, which is extremely effective. Problems helped include:
"I approached Carolyn with torn cartilage in my knee, [verified by a MRI scan], which was giving me constant pain, lower back pain which I have had on and off over the years and a shoulder/neck condition, which gives referred pain in my throat.
