Does anyone know if acupuncture can treat a structural misalignment in the neck

Re: acupuncture

Acupuncture might be able to treat the pain associated with the misalignment but not the actual misalignment. In traditional chinese medicine besides acupuncture there is a field called "dit da" which translates to fall and hit medicine. It's basically Chinese orthopedics born on the battlefield in ancient times where people had to fix broken bones and joints fast. It uses herbs in addition to manual manipulation and sometimes in conjunction with acupuncture and tui na (massage). I've used it myself once for a bad sprain on my ankle and they had me walking in a few days while my regular doctor said it would take at least a month or two.
