Knee Acupuncture

Knee Acupuncture

University of Maryland conducted a study on the use of acupuncture on knee osteoarthritis.  The study randomized over 500 patients into different groups.  The group that received the real acupuncture showed a significant reduction in pain.

Acupuncture is an ancient treatment option for osteoarthritis.   It is safe and believed to work by stimulating endorphins in the body.  Health insurance has been known to cover acupuncture so check your policy.

Changes in diet and herbal remedies are often times recommended as adjuncts to acupuncture.
