Acupuncture has a good rate of success with joint pain. It is certainly worth trying, whether it is an arthritis (osteo or rheumatoid), a ligament/tendon disorder, gout, or some other condition.

Ideally, you will see improvement on your first visit. "Improvement" meaning a reduction in pain, not necessarily pain-free after one treatment. Sometimes it takes 2-3 treatments to initiate a positive response, so you may have to be a little bit patient. If you get no results at all after 3 or 4 treatments, chances are this particular form of acupuncture might not do the trick for you. This does not mean that another acupuncturist, using a different approach, might not be successful, but most patients will not tend to seek another acupuncturist if the first try failed, which is a pity.

That said, medicine (any medical modality) is a statistical, not an exact science, and no matter how many times we treat a certain condition with success, there is always a possibility of failure. Acupuncture does not have harmful side effects, so "failure" in this case means "no improvement," but there is no other risk.
