        In western medicine, acupuncture is considered an alternative therapy but is viewed as an accepted traditional treatment in Asian cultures.

        There have been extensive studies conducted on acupuncture, especially for back and neck pain, osteoarthritis/knee pain, and headache. However, researchers are only beginning to understand whether acupuncture can be helpful for various health conditions.

        Have you tried acupuncture for your ALS symptoms? What do you think about it as a treatment for ALS?

          I was diagnosed in August of this year, and immediately started acupuncture,  most often twice a week.  Being newly diagnosed i can’t say whether or not disease progression has slowed, but i do notice less frequent and less intense muscle twitching.   Unfortunately insurance does not cover the cost.

            Has anyone read the article from the web site below? I think it’s posted by National Institute of Health.  Appears acupuncture provides quite a bit of relief.  I posted a second article as well

            Has anyone tried the type of acupuncture discussed in these articles?

              Fascinating articles. Although sample size is small it appears that acupuncture does not make the condition worse. Any stabilization and improved QoL seems worth the effort. Thanks for sharing. Will add this to list of questions for next appt with neurologist.
