Maybe good?: It works very well for many types of pain (as well as coxygeal pain) :) but - it does not work for all types of pain.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

It depends: For certain painful conditions acupuncture can be very helpful; major surgery has been performed using acupuncture as the only anesthetic! but every person/situation is unique, so the only way to see how it works for you is to try it. And, or course, there are different styles/techniques of acupuncture, so some acupuncturists may help you more than others.
