Knee Pain reversed with Acupuncture

Knee Pain

Acupunc­ture helps in the recov­ery from knee pain and range of motion issues asso­ci­at­ed with dam­age to struc­tures such as the ACL, MCL and menis­cus. Post-sur­gi­cal acupunc­ture is also help­ful in assur­ance of a com­plete and rapid recu­per­a­tion process. Research has test­ed this ancient sci­ence. Dr. Stephen Straus, direc­tor of the Nation­al Cen­ter for Com­ple­men­tary and Alter­na­tive Med­i­cine notes, “acupunc­ture reduces the pain and func­tion­al impair­ment of osteoarthri­tis of the knee.”

The process involves local stim­u­la­tion of the dam­aged region to engage and enhance the recov­ery process. Acupunc­ture reduces pain but also restores func­tion to the knee. As a result of acupunc­ture care, the knee is less like­ly to incur fur­ther dam­age and the acupunc­ture halts irri­ta­tion that can lead to arthri­tis for­ma­tion.
