Acupuncture with Gold for Knee Osteoarthritis

I have treated thousands of patients with knee arthritis and never heard of gold acupuncture as an option.  In the most recent issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, a case report discusses the topic.

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:
Yoo and Yoo NEJM 2013

Please post any comments or links to data about this topic below.

It is so good to know about Acupuncture with Gold for Knee Osteoarthritis. It seems quite interesting and beneficial too. I will visit my nearby Mississauga acupuncture clinic for this kind of acupuncture therapy for my leg and Knee pain.
