Re: Help with an injury

It can you get down when you have an injury for months and it just doesn't seem to get any better. Eight months is a long time, especially when you go through different treatments without seemingly any improvement. I hope acupuncture can help, all I can tell you is it only gave me temporary pain relief and I had it done by a Chinese specialist in Hong Kong. To be fair to him he never claimed it would do anything but help reduce muscle spasms, inflammation and pain - in other words the symptoms of the herniated disc. If what you've got is osteitis under a different name there's a lot of discussion about the injury and treatment from sufferers on this forum.

After 8 months maybe it's time to go to another specialist like Eire suggested if only for a second opinion..
