What was your condition?  Tendinitis (according to sports doctor)

What steps had you taken previously to get help?  Anti-inflammatory medicine and arm splint

In your own words, what did the acupuncturist do?  “Poked me with needles” is what I’ve told friends but it’s not nearly as bad as it sounds.

What are your hobbies?  Outdoor activities of all kinds

How have you improved?  Pain eliminated and mobility restored.

Words of encouragement to others:  The needle-pricking doesn’t hurt!  I can only speak for myself and the one condition I’ve had treated but it worked for me despite initial skepticism -it really doesn’t hurt to try -and might help end some “hurts.”
