I have been having persistent back pain for more than a year. Will acupuncture help?

I have been having persistent back pain for more than a year. I have seen multiple doctors who cannot seem to find anything wrong based on my xrays and MRI scan.
They have advised me to just take pain medicines and try some physiotherapy.  Some of my friends have recommended acupuncture. Will acupuncture help?

Hi @sickboiboi! Acupuncture is a safe and acceptable form of treatment for chronic back pain with no obvious anatomical origin of the pain. It can be used in conjunction in other forms of conservative orthopaedic treatment. 

If you have decided to consult an acupuncturist, it will be good to inform your primary treating medical practitioner that you will be starting on acupuncture treatment. All the best!
