Will Acupuncture Work?

No treatment or therapy is guaranteed. Surgery and prescription medications are the same and no doctor will ever go out on a limb and say a particular treatment or therapy is 100% certain to cure you. The same holds true for acupuncture. May patients swear by the healing powers of inserting fine needles along meridian channels on the human body and others claim not to experience any change in their condition. The benefit of acupuncture treatment is that it is affordable, doesn't require the preparation that surgery requires and won't lead to any side effects the way prescription medications can.
