Acupuncture works

Yesterday I went to my physiotherapist for rehabilitation of my 'trigger finger'. This time, she inserted three needles at three different acupuncture points to reduce swelling on my forefinger. I experienced numbing sensation as the needles were being pushed into the skin. They remained there for about 20 minutes after which they were removed. When she examined my swollen finger, it had reduced considerably.

Acupuncture did wonders to my finger and now I could flex a little bit. According to her, it would take quite some time for the finger to be normal again because the tendon was swollen too. I expect to be undergoing acupuncture treatment the next time I set foot at her clinic again.

Acupuncture works.
