"Acupuncture to my knees has been very successful "

About: The Princess Royal Hospital / Pain Management

(as the patient),

First attended pain management Clinic at the Princess Royal Hospital in 2012. Everything was explained clearly to me about my options regarding my condition fybro myalgia. I was offered a placement on a pain management course starting June 2013, which I'm really looking forward to. I was also offered acupuncture.

The acupuncture I received in autumn 2012 on my knees has been very successful and as a result I'm to have further acupuncture on my shoulder, starting in May 2013.

I'm not saying the clinic has changed my life, just made it a lot more bearable having less pain.
