They have taken a weekend crash course in needling trigger points which offers woefully inadequate experience and guidance and could result in organ puncture, etc. With regard to your pain, acupuncture and accompanying techniques can certainly help. It would require an in-person assessment to ascertain the cause of your pain, but if the pain is muscular, acupuncture can lessen muscle tension, circulate blood and fluids, decrease inflammation and improve energy flow. I suggest meeting with an Acupuncturist to get a better sense of how the medicine can particularly help your condition.
