Default Acupuncture??

Has anyone tried acupuncture to relieve pain? I have heard mixed reviews but would love to know others opinions on the matter

i've used it but it didn't work for me. One of my issues is muscle spasms/cramping. For whatever reason, when the needles were applied, it would trigger various muscles in my back to spasm.

I have also tried massage, cupping, scraping and .... dry needling. I have to say the dry needle worked the best. My chiropractor basically inserted a long thin dry needle into a knot of muscle in my back. I felt a sensation like I was swallowing a egg down the side of my neck and... the knot was gone. It was truly bizarre, but worked. I'm having a flare right now and just found a chiro in my area (who takes insurance!) who offers dry needling. I made an appt for saturday.

Acupuncture unfortunately did not work for me. I'm about to try Cyrotherapy for inflamation. Getting frozen every day for two weeks straight doesnt that sound like fun.
