Arthritis pain is one of the most common conditions that I treat. Acupuncture is a gentle, safe, and effective medication-free way to manage joint pain. Not only does it help relieve pain, it can also halt the inflammatory process that causes damage to the joint tissues.
Arthritis pain is often worse during the cold winter months here in Seattle. This often results in people being even more sedentary than usual, which can lead to other problems such as muscle loss, weight gain, depression, and inactivity. It's best to stay on top of your pain symptoms to prevent it from getting the best of you and negatively impacting your quality of life.
I typically recommend getting acupuncture treatments 1 to 2 times per week, along with supplements and diet changes to help decrease overall body inflammation.
