Acupuncture for joint pain
Joint pains tend to be a part of arthritic conditions. Arthritis pain is common in the UK, where the damp climate can create or exacerbate arthritic conditions.
Joint pain can feel like pain and stiffness and is worse in winter time when it's cold.
Joint pain in Chinese medicine is caused by a lack or qi or blood flow to the affected area. This lack of nutritional blood flow to the area not only causes pain but also the disintegration of the joint and surrounding tissues. Acupuncture helps to move the blood to the affected area, thereby allowing the body to heal the surrounding tissues and relieve the pain.

One of the most successful alternative medicine treatments for joint pain is acupuncture. If you try acupuncture to relieve pain, you will be amazed by how thin needles are used, which also boost the immune system. Research has shown that electric current acupuncture is able to prevent bone loss.
