Arthritis, which comes in different forms, is
inflammation of the joins. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and
gout are the three most common form of arthritis among seniors. Many
non-steroid anti-inflammatory based medicines are prescribed to
patients suffering from arthritis. The problem with such medicines is
that, in the long term, they may harm gastrointestinal and renal
function. acupuncture has been found to be effective in treating
various types of arthritis.
Acupuncture increases the blood flow to various parts of the body by
allowing the positive Chi energy to flow freely through all the
meridians or channels of energy in the body. The increased blood flow
results in reduction of inflammation at the joints, which is one of the
leading causes of pain in arthritis patients. In addition, Modern
medical technology has revealed that the insertion of acupuncture
needles causes measurable physiological changes like the release of
pain-relieving beta-endorphins in surrounding tissue. The arthritis
patients thus feel much better after an acupuncture session.
Acupuncture has another major benefit, which is to strengthen the
body's immune system. For patients suffering from arthritis, whether it
is arthritis of the hand, shoulder, hip, knee, back, we treat the body
as a whole, instant of just treating the obvious symptoms. A lot of
arthritis patients suffer from rheumatoid arthritis or psoriatic
arthritis, which are autoimmune disorders. Hence, our treatments
not only focus on controlling the painful symptoms of arthritis, but
also on balancing the immune system.we aims to correct both the
external and internal causes of arthritis.
At same time, acupuncture also helps relieve related symptoms and
consequences of arthritis like sleeping problems, fatigue and
depression. Thus, acupuncture is the ideal therapy for people suffering
