It's been a pleasure to see a great deal of improvement on Chronic Low Back Pain for my 10 years of practice. My patients have told me that they should have known for Acupuncture treatment for a long time ago. Unfortunately, people try Acupuncture after they tried every treatment and modalities they can in US. However, if acupuncture is available through medicare, they can reduce pain and increase mobility. It will save money for Medicare because Acupuncture is cost-effective treatment method. In washington State, L&I starts to cover the treatment for Low back pain. It's already proven method to help patients out of LBP suffering. I appreciate your consideration to include Acupuncture in the Medicare system.
