Well, I still don't like acupuncture but there's no denying the improvement: appreciably less hip pain and increased range of motion after one session.
Since then, I've had two other sessions with Merlin to deal with neck, back and shoulder pain that were troublesome but less urgent. Happy to report the hip pain is a distant memory with only occasional dull ache in the area.
Thank you, Merlin! *Continued on Yelp......
