Joint Pain and Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine can be relatively effective for acute or long-term treatment of joint diseases. The treatment strategies that Traditional Chinese Medicine stems from are based on the ancient Chinese belief of focusing on the root cause as well as the symptoms of disease recovery. For example, arthritis is diagnosed in Chinese Medicine as an accumulation of dampness with the external invasion of cold and heat which obstructs meridian pathways, thus affecting energy flow.
Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies such as acupuncture, fire cupping and moxibustion are considered to make each individual patient’s treatment plan custom and most beneficial for their health.
Treatment for joint pain with acupuncture is vastly dependent on the diagnosis according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. Contact us today to discuss how we can help you to improve your mobility and quality of life.
