My 22 year old son had his aortic valve replaced with a mechanical one last year.
His L 4-5 disk just went out yesterday.

Can he receive acupuncture treatment to deal with the pain?

Thank you for your consideration.

I don’t think it’s contraindicated or not preferred if u mean to be at risk of infective endocarditis for example…
As it’s not an invasive procedure…
