Cases • Knee Pain

51 yo presented with low back, leg and knee pain after water skiing. He’s been helped structurally with regular physio 2wc/week but has to rely on pain killers to sleep. He is eager to try acupuncture to avoid addiction to pain killers and sleep ades. After first visit pain and stiffness in knee reduced from 9-5 out of 10. After 3 treatments first week pain reduced to 2 out of 10 and able to sleep w/o meds. Continued 3 treatments a week for 2 months and now one or two times a month to keep inflammation at bay and avoid knee replacement for now.
