I have not found any data on the measure the success of bone growth or healing help from acupuncture or bone growth stimulators.
I have bone growth stimulator coming on March 9th, as my insurance will not cover until after 90 days post surgery.

Yesterday I had an awesome acupuncture session the the Veterans Hospital. Two doctors gave me acupuncture needles on my surgery leg, and my sore shoulders from using walker. Also relaxation breathing exercises, massage and some pain patches on a sore muscle. I slept all through the night for first time in months and feel much better. But I realize it does not last forever.
