Alternative Therapies????
« on: March 09, 2006, 03:13:03 PM »
Hi All

I'm still waiting for my MRI scan but my Grandad bless him has offered to pay for some alternative therapies to help my knee in the mean time. What do people suggest, My mum thinks i should go to a mctimoney chiropractor but i'm a bit worried about doing any actual work on my knee until after the scan. My aunt says I should i should try cranial osteopathy but will that really help my knee, what about acupuncture does it really work???
and if any one has tried anything else could you let me know, as to whether it went well or badly or didn't help at all, all advice would be welcome.

Thank you

kat
Will anyone ever believe me :(

Kat, before you really know what's wrong, if you need anything for pain try accupuncture can help..but be careful with other treatments.
Wish you best of luck !!
