The objective of this project is to investigate the effectiveness of acupuncture as an alternative treatment for arthritis. Using three different approaches, this project provides an in-depth look at acupuncture to identify the benefits of this popular form of treatment. By researching the mechanism of acupuncture, analyzing case studies and patient feedback through surveys and narratives the benefits of acupuncture were highlighted. Our research also indicates a growing willingness among the general public to pursue this alternative form of treatment.
