Now I am getting scared. Physical Therapy doctor recommended acupuncture for my hip and back pain. My family dr. I have known for 30 years would have recommended this procedure but I don't think he believes in it. My medical conditions: Degenerative Joint Disease, Osteoarthritis, 2 surgeries one to L4,L5 and S1 with Titanium and one to my neck for spinal stenosis (cadaver bone replacement). I read some information about acupuncture and I am not sure this is the answer. I am scheduled for physical therapy for the 9th time but what is the feedback on this acupuncture?
