Arthritis UK charity states acupuncture good for gout, back pain, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia
"Research published in the journal Rheumatology suggests that acupuncture is an effective complementary treatment for patients suffering from gout.
The painful condition is characterised by a build-up of uric acid crystals in the joints and tissues that can lead to inflammation, intense pain and flaky skin over affected areas. Often, it affects the joint of the big toe."Tweet
