Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a form of arthritis that affects large joints, especially those bearing the most body weight, such as the knee and hip joints. Joints that we use most during the day are also commonly affected. The cardinal symptoms of osteoarthritis are joint pain and stiffness. Swelling of the joints may also be present. Pain relieving medication and physiotherapy are the interventions preferred to manage osteoarthritis.

I've been reading up on acupuncture for all this OA pain. Anyone try it out to see if it actually works?
