As a birthday 'treat' I have my second acupuncture treatment this afternoon for neck problems. Many years ago in a car crash (no fault of mine) I suffered bad whiplash, but of course in those days you were given a collar thing to wear for a week and that was that.
I've ignored the stiffness and aches for a long time but recently decided to do something about them - mainly because they were interrupting my sleep. So the physio suggested sticking these needles into me when I visited her on Tuesday and wants another stab at me today.
Is it working? Can't really say but I still needed paracetemol during the day on Wednesday and yesterday. Early days I know and she says we (I like her use of the royal term) should know by the end of the third session which is next Tuesday. Seemingly the treatments have to be close together to get the best result.
Wish me luck!
