    This is a retrospective review and comparison of acupuncture use in two distinct populations over two years: an armed forces general practice and a civilian private practice. A computerised database is used to draw comparisons between the groups and the results of acupuncture within those groups. The computer is also used to provide graphic representations of these results. The author has found that acupuncture in his hands is most successful in treating myofascial pain with associated tender points.
