I agree with dr. Chin.
Acupuncture is benefitial for both acute and chronic musculoskeletal problems. It can help by decreasing obstructions of qi, blood circulation, lymph drainage and nerve conductivity. Acupuncture is often used for refractory back pain (with and without electrical stimulation).
