I have used acupuncture for my joint pain. My Rhuemy had an acupuncturist in his office. I was not a big believer in alternative medicine practices, but gave it a shot since I couldn't take any of the arthritis medicines. It took a few treatments, but it does give me relief. Not 100%, but a good 75 0 80%. I would recommend looking for a "community acupuncture clinic". Do a web search for one. The operate on a sliding scale for payment, the more you go, the cheaper they are. Somewhere in the $15 - 35 a treatment in my area. It is a little less private, but a lot less costly. Not sure how it would work for CD pain, I've not had a great deal of success with that aspect of it. Good luck.
