Gold Acupuncture Knee X-ray
From the NEJM, 2013, See Link Below
Apparently, this form of treatment is common in some Asian countries. As you can see from the x-ray above, it looks like a a bunch of pine needles or staples have invaded the knee. I do not know of any data supporting this type of approach but it does make for a very interesting x-ray.
Here is a link to the New England Journal of Medicine Case Report:
