Hello guys,
I heard that acupuncture has a lot of benefits when we compare it with other medicines.
Acupuncture helps to

  • Relieve headaches and migraines,

  • Low back pain

  • Neck pain

  • Knee pain

  • Osteoarthritis etc.

I am asking this because, since a couple of days my wife is having intense back pain. There is numbness and tingling on her lower back. The pain is intense in the evening. The western treatment will involve a lot of tests, time and money, and still, we will not be able to sure that our health will improve. So, we think, we will go with acupuncture this time. But, she is very much afraid of needles and the thoughts of having needles all over her skin are making her shivers.
I hope someone here has tried acupuncture therapy for back pain and will share their experience.
Was it really painful?
How was the result?
Were there any bruises?
Thanks in advance.
