I do acupuncture. it has been demonstrated to be useful in but a few indications. in my hands it has been useful only for very few problems. all acupuncturists i know love treating knees because the results are so reliable. for other reasons, not so much. so i advocate more research on the issue but lets pay for only evidence based treatments…. and that should go for typical medical interventions too which would save orders of magnitude more money.
