Arthritis pain is not something that you only feel on a rainy day. Sufferers of arthritic pain already know that the pain caused by arthritic joints is with them all the time. There are good days where everyday movements are possible. But there are also bad days when often just getting out of bed requires the use of painkillers.
This constant pain, throbbing and/or burning sensation effect many of the clients I see each week in clinic. It degrades their quality of life through other side effects as well. These side effects include lack of proper sleep and disturbed sleeping patters, general digestive problems as well as weight gain through lack of movement and exercise.
Arthritic conditions include:
- sore or grinding knees
- twisted toes
- buckled fingers
- locked wrists
- rheumatoid arthritis
Over the years I have found that the most effective and successful treatments for any form of chronic arthritic pain is acupuncture. That is traditional acupuncture that should not be confused with needling or dry needling.
Traditional acupuncture is proven to reduce the swelling and inflammation in all joints and by increasing blood flow in those areas allows freedom of movement in the joint and a reduction in associated pain. The great news is that there are no side effects other than feeling great.
