In brief: Possibly

I'd recommend you consult with an experienced physical therapist who has worked with acupuncturists.
Sometimes response to acupuncture depends as much on the patient as it does the therapy itself, and a lot depends also on the cause of the pain. Be wary of any practitioner who tells you that they can treat anything and every-thing through their trade. Talk to others who have tried it.
