Dear all,

I am about to see a case sent from my medicine colleagues that has been struggling for 2 years with pain related to her IBD (or potentially IBS- although I appreciate this syndrome has not been described in animals yet?).

I was wondering if you have any advice on this: have you tried acupuncture in the past and has it been effective? I can see that in humans it does have an effect at reducing pain but they also treated the patients longer (10 weeks) and/or did multiple appointments/week (2), which is something i have not yet done in my OA/back pain cases,

any advice is fully appreciated,

Hope you kept cool and slept through the heat wave,
