Fix Knee Pain with Acupuncture…
Acupuncture is good at relieving knee pain due to Arthritis, whether due to Osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Osteoarthritis is the wear-and-tear type of Arthritis…In general, our parts age as we age.
Osteoarthritis usually affects larger, weight-bearing joints, like hips and knees.
Rheumatoid Arthritis is an Auto Immune disease.
Rheumatoid Arthritis usually affects smaller, non-weight-bearing joints like knuckles of the fingers.
The joint lining is affected in Rheumatoid Arthritis and can lead to twisted, deformed joints.
Both cause pain.
Both cause joint damage.
Post-surgery Knee Pain:
Acupuncture is great for lowering the inflammation and swelling after knee surgery and can help heal scars from surgery.
Scars are not just an issue of vanity. They can interfere with the circulation.
This can cause long-term numbness or a feeling of cold sensation at the scar site.
Acupuncture treats knee scars and scars in other areas of the body, too.
It is good to wait about six weeks after to treat the actual scar itself.
This is because we want the cell matrix to ensure the build-up of collagen and healthy tissue.
In other words, we do not want to mess with the healing process.
It is creating a scar to protect you for a reason.
Acupuncture can be administered right after surgery, just not right at the scar site before six weeks time.
Acupuncture has been shown to help relieve knee pain and to help improve knee function.
Acupuncture is good for almost all types of pain-even long-standing, chronic pain!

Many of my acupuncture patients with bone-on-bone knee pain, have been able to avoid knee replacement surgery for many years!
This can be great for some who are unable to commit to taking the required time off for recovery due to job, etc.
Some just want to buy some time.
Either way, acupuncture lowers inflammation and pain.
Are you ready to try acupuncture to relieve pain and start living again?
