I spoke with my mum yesterday and on advce from her doctor who said that it will unlikely have any effect because it is in her joints, is that a fair assessment or is it a brush off do you thnk?
I know a great Chinese doctor in Plymouth where I live and am confident he could treat my mum properly, i've had acupuncture with him a few times for various things and I can say for the physical ailments it has worked 100% and theres no reason why it cant be the same for hers but according to her doctor the arthritis is kind of 'hardwired' into her system making any potential treatment seem pointless?
What is your opinion on his prognosis David are there different forms of arthritis, are some less treatable then others?
Gill do you mind me asking did your arthritis come from your fall or is it something you've lived with and how effective and long lasting was the acupuncture in treating you and also how did it help for smoking because when I was treated for the same apart from feeling a bit nautious when I smoked it didn't really feel like it worked. How did it work for you?
