Arthritis Treatment – Acupuncture

May 30, 2011
Knee Acupuncture

Knee Acupuncture

An acupuncture treatment for knee osteoarthritis involves placing tiny needles along your arms, legs, shoulders and perhaps your fingers.  Acupuncture points can be located all over your body, not just the affected area.

Some believe that arthritis symptoms emerge when the flow of chi in the meridians become blocked.  Chi or “Qi” is frequently translated as an “energy flow”.  A meridian is one of twelve pathways that allow chi to flow throughout the body.  The blockage of the Chi within the meridian is called “bi”.

The number of treatments, duration, and number of needles will vary by patient.  An acupuncturist will examine you, and determine the best acupuncture treatment for you.  Each treatment is customized.
