Knee Pain
Acupuncture is highly efficacious in the treatment of chronic and acute knee pain including tendonitis, arthritis, post-traumatic and post-surgical injury recovery. Knee treatments usually begin with one to two acupuncture visits per week. A person usually experiences significant results within the first few treatments. Results include greater range of motion, decreased swelling and the reduction or elimination of pain. In addition, knee treatments prevent the onset and progression of degenerative knee disease. Acupuncture and moxabustion is applied to encourage greater blood circulation to the affected region. This reduces pain, allows for tissue repair, prevents the formation of scar tissue and lubricates the tendons.
