I searched and found one closed thread consisting mostly of a heated debate over whether chiropractic or acupuncture was worse, so PLEASE only reply if you have firsthand knowledge or experience- thank you. I have been suffering w/a neuroma, a pinched nerve in the ball of the foot(http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f34/there-podiatrist-house-888042/). Saw a podiatrist, who gave me an inneffectual hydrocortizone injection- after which she recommended *killing the nerve*(her actual words)w/a series of alcohol injections. I am now researching *other treatments. Any TBers had any good- or bad- results using acupuncture for nerve issues(or anything else)?
