Acupuncture is a treatment based on Chinese medicine -- a system of healing that dates back thousands of years. At the core of Chinese medicine is the notion that a type of life force, or energy, known as qi (pronounced "chee") flows through energy pathways (meridians) in the body. Each meridian corresponds to one organ, or group of organs, that governs particular bodily functions. Achieving the proper flow of qi is thought to create health and wellness. Qi maintains the dynamic balance of yin and yang, which are complementary opposites. According to Chinese medicine, everything in nature has both yin and yang.

I : I am so sorry you are going through this. I am assuming you have seen an orthopedist; if not you need to do so immediately. Yes, having your knee cap "slip" can cause severe pain and future problems. Please ask your doctor to re-submit for the mri. You can also call the insurance company and appeal the mri, or file a complaint with your state insurance division about them refusing the mri.
