Acupuncture Cure Knee Joint Pain
Avoid Knee Joint Replacement
If you suffer from knee pain
, you should know that recent studies support the relief of osteoarthritis
symptoms via acupuncture. In fact, in one Scandinavian study, 25% of patients cancelled their plans for knee surgery
after they received acupuncture treatments.
Acupuncture, the ancient Chinese practice of inserting needles into the skin in order to regulate and balance
the flow of “chi” (life force) throughout the body, has been gaining increasing acceptance internationally as an effective treatment for a broad range of conditions, including knee pain
Acupuncture is painless. It will likely take many sessions before you see a true, lasting difference. The reduction of pain is its best use.
During the past year I've seen several patients after total joint replacement surgery.
Acupuncture helped relieve pain and assisted their progress towards regaining strength and range of motion through better performance during physical therapy sessions. There were no cases of infections and the scars healed well.
