    So I started physical therapy and they're asking if I want to do Kinetacore. Basically they want to stab me with a bunch of needles.

    Anybody ever heard of this? Experienced it? Told their doctor or therapist HELL NO!

    I can't find any REAL reviews online.

    Well, how did it go? What did it cost? Would a tattoo have been cheaper?

    It was paid for by my insurance.

    The needle ***** wasn't bad. The muscle spasms following were impressive. I had steroid injections between the bones of my wrist that hurt less. The therapist said I took the prize for tightest neck ever.

    By the time I got home I felt like I had just got done shoulder pressing 300 lbs.

    I don't know just yet. I've got another 2 weeks of exercises and stim and needle sticks to go.

    I won't take the pain medicine. I have had relief from a chiropractor. If it comes to surgery, I will have the surgery. I just don't believe in witchcraft. :p

    This isn't acupuncture. There's solid western science behind it.

    It's acupuncture with electro-stim therapy. I've had e-stim without the needles. It helped a bit after my back surgery as a part of the whole physical therapy regimen. I had a good physical therapist and recovered pretty quick after the surgery because of it.

    I did stim for years. Never had the crazy effect this crap did.

    And my father in law has done acupuncture. He said it was nothing like what they did to me. He said they used a lot more needles but not as deep or aggressive.

    The idea is to get the deeper muscle fibers to fire as well as the shallow ones. It is a heck of a workout. I think of it as being almost like controlled deep dart tasering.

    I am a chiropractor and I have read up on dry needle therapy before. It is becoming increasingly popular because it does have the ability to reach more depths within the muscle belly as opposed to other surface electrical stimulators. If the indication is correct then I hear that it can be very helpful. Hopefully that was your case.

    Surgery would be my very last resort. I know very few people who got relief from back or neck pain after surgery.

    Doc said max life on disc surgery is 30 years. Then they blow our like a tire and you're getting them fused.

    Be careful with surgery. A lot of the major surgeries will leave you with further problems later on in life. Fusions are really bad because they then increase the rate of degeneration of the joints above and below them. Simple solution is to take care of your spine so it never gives you problems. Remember you only get one, there is no spinal replacement surgery!
