Acupuncture for Osteoarthritis


My name is Rizki, I from Indonesian

Actualy I don't understand why acupuncture can relieve pain and improve function in patients with osteoarthritis, and what the mechanism of acupuncture in the body that can make it?



In the most general terms possible it is because it reduces inflammation and increases circulation. There is, however, a lot more in biochemical terms that happens but I&#39m not certain that is the type of answer you want to read. If it is, I suggest you go to and search for "acupuncture AND arthritis" and read some of the clinical studies that contain the technical details.


OA symptoms may include joint pain, tenderness, stiffness, locking, and sometimes an effusion. In TCM, there are 4 kinds of OA: wind arthritis, cold arthritis, damp arthritis and heat arthritis. So the treatment proposal are dispel wind, active blood circle warm up joint, clear dampness and sedate heat. And there are 4 certainly treatment protocols for those arthritis.


It&#39s really help


But i have more question

do you have any particular recommendations for points that are indicated to treat knee osteoarthritis?


Different diagnosis, different pattern with different treatment protocol, it should be include a lot of things, keep going on your study, you will learn it in your school :)
