Acupunture is a traditional Chinese medicine. This treatment is sometimes very much fruitful for treating certain diseas, but in many cases it does not work.Once during 1975 I took this treatment for 2 months from an Acupuncturist Doctor (well known Doctor in this field in Kolkata at that time) for the recovery of my right hand wrist- drop due to radial nerve depression. The then it was a painful treatment. They used to prick several very thin long niddles on different places on my hand and let me lie for few minutes on the bed and then take out them.I did not get any improvement in this.
According to me this treatment is suitable for temporary healing of pains of different places mainly due to Arthrities kind of diseas.
.But this treatment may help some diseas
