In brief: Acupuncture

It is considered a viable additional or adjunctive therapy that can help contribute to relief.
Acupuncture involves placement of almost microscopic needle tips into 'meridians'. It is not painful.

In brief: Yes but temporary

Good conservative treatment option.
Unfortunately the effects are often short term and insurance likely will not cover it. Make sure the person you use is certified.
