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.
