Acupuncture is a medical treatment involving the needling of specific points on the body surface to treat disease and to decrease pain. The needles are very fine, solid, metallic needles. Studies show acupuncture may be effective in the treatment of low back pain, osteoarthritis and other painful musculoskeletal conditions. It may also be helpful in such forms of inflammatory arthritis as rheumatoid arthritis, but should be used in conjunction with disease modifying agents recommended by a rheumatologist.
