Arthritis or degenerative joint disease is a result of age or trauma to joints.
Acupuncture cannot heal arthritis, but can minimise the pain caused by it.
Inflammation and stiffness of the joints indicates a stagnation of energy flow. By enabling the energy to flow again, acupuncture can reduce the swelling and thus reduce pain.
Acupuncture in combination with Chinese herbs improves the condition of joints, muscles and tendons.
