Arthritis and Acupuncture? Most certainly, yes.
People commonly ask us if acupuncture can help them better manage the pain of osteoarthritis.
The answer is, it's normally very helpful - not always prone to showing immediate relief - but steady improvement over time.
Acupuncture treats all kinds of pain, including pain from different types of arthritis.
Taking a cue from our friends at Central Oklahoma Acupuncture, we'd like to share this article from the Cleveland Clinic. The article's focus is on osteoarthritis of the knee, specifically. But it gives a nice overview of how acupuncture helps to reduce inflammation and can be used alongside other modalities, treatments and medications.
Next week, we'll write a bit about why different acupuncturists treatments (even among the group at MAS) can look and feel different from one another's.
