“I recently injured my knee (walking became a big problem!) and went in for treatment. The office setting is very comfortable and Dr Kirkham immediately put me at ease with a thorough examination – he asked a lot of questions and offered a lot of explanation to help me understand what was going on.
The treatment went very smoothly and by that evening the swelling has subsided substantially and I could hobble around again. (Although he recommended that I not hobble around, of course…)”
Long-term study shows the benefits of acupuncture for shoulder pain.
The participants had treatment two times a week for eight weeks and then were asked to follow up after 6 months. After 6 months the acupuncture group had continued significant improvement compared to the control group. The researchers concluded that acupuncture is an effective long-term treatment for shoulder pain.
