Acupuncture & Arthritis

Acupuncture helps with pain, stiffness & swelling, so it naturally suits those managing arthritic conditions. Osteoarthritis is a chronic inflammation and degeneration of the articular cartilage & most commonly found in major weight bearing joints, as well as the joints of the hands and fingers. The cartilage breakdown and inflammation produces spurring in and around the joints.

Acupuncture addresses the inflammation, muscular tension & guarding that occur around the joint spaces. This decrease in tension results in a notable pain reduction by reducing irritation in the joints. Despite the presence of spurring there is substantial evidence to show a marked improvement in pain levels as treatment progresses.
