Hello-i have a bulging disc and pinched nerve in c5. I have pain in my neck, left shoulder, arm and hand with numbness in thumb and forefinger. I will start physical therapy next week, but the pain is constant and wears me out. Would acupuncture provide pain relief?

I have been suffering from sciatica, osteoarthritis, bursitis and other back problems for the past six months and have not had relief from Celebrex or physical therapy. Is acupuncture something to pursue? I am a 93 year old female who has been active and in good health until recently. I would prefer to avoid more strong medications unless there is no other way to deal with this condition. This is something that is intermittent and sometimes very painful.

Hello, My wife has a painful Bakers cyst behind here right knee. she has a history of osteoarthritist in both knees and fingers. She has responded quite well to bee venom therapy for the osteoarthritist when she would target the stings according to accupuncture tables or charts. She insist she does it where it hurts. Bee venom therapy has been very effective at releeving the pain and gaining back almost complete full motion after a couple treatments. The bakers cyst has only recently become painful over the course of less than a week. Last week the doctor told her it was a Bakers cyst and at the time it was not painful so nothing was done. The pain has now become unbearable and alieve does not seem to be providing any relief. She wants to try the bee venom therapy and wants to know the administration site that would correspond to accupuncture therapy. Is the administration site different for the Bursa? or is it recommended to correspond with the osteoarthritis site which is just below the inside of the knee but about two inches below the patella? any suggestion would be appreciated. As a side note I can not get her to rest the knee. she is just too active and will out work ten other normal people even thouh she is a very spry 68 years young. Where should she sting herself?
