Joint Pain & Acupuncture
Joint pain is a very common ailment among Americans. Most the most common areas of joint pain are: shoulder joint pain, knee pain, wrist joint pain, big toe and thumb joint pain, joint pain in the finger joints, and hip joint pain. When looking for relief, Western Medicine offers limited treatment options for the management of joint pain: rest, medications or surgical options. All of these Western options have serious drawbacks that my be unacceptable for many people.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective method to treat joint pain. In addition, this holistic approach has no medications and no side effects. Both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institute of Health (NIH) recognize the benefits of acupuncture in treating pain due to a wide range of causes. Western research shows that the placement of acupuncture needles at specific points releases endorphins and opioids (natural painkillers), immune system regenerative cells, as well as stimulates neurotransmitters in the brain. Research has shown that glucose and other bloodstream nutrients are elevated after acupuncture.
Some of the many pain conditions that acupuncture treats include:
- Back pain
- Joint pain: Knee, Shoulder, Elbow, and Wrist
- Facial pain including Trigeminal Neuralgia and Bell’s Palsy
- Pain due to fractures or ligament tears
- Neck pain
- Menstrual cramps, and more
In summary, Acupuncture is very effective for the treatment of joint pain and much safer than other methods of treatment. Results are generally seen in 1-3 treatments. Often, rehabilitation exercises are given to strengthen the effected area.
