Arthritis Acupuncture Treatment
Many people regard acupuncture as a trusted treatment for relief of arthritis. Studies validate that acupuncture relieves pain, promotes joint mobility and nourishes the cartilage to keep it from breaking down. Acupuncture produces a signal that travels to the central nervous system, which releases chemicals called neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters are enkephalins and endorphins, which reduce pain sensations. By reducing pain acupuncture can decrease pain associated with all types of arthritis.
Acupuncture also released the hormone cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone that reduces inflammation in the body. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) can also be improved with acupuncture. Recent research shows that acupuncture can help regulate the immune system in order to improve function and alleviate the symptoms. Acupuncture can relieve arthritis pain by reducing associated pain and inflammation, thus decreasing arthritis impact on your life!
