Amphibious54- I should tell my brother about trying acupuncture. He injured his back in a car accident and he has chronic lower back pain as a result. He is seeking options besides narco pain relievers because he recently had to go through a pain medication detox that was tough for him. His doctor did not help him manage his pain well so he was taking ridiculous amounts of medication; well beyond what he should have been taking.
He has already had to change careers because he can no longer handle the stress of working construction. He is thinking about trying to get his medical marijuana card, but I know that he also wants to find a therapy that will help his back heal.
