Most people experience knee pain at some point in their lives. Symptoms may develop from everyday wear and tear, overuse or injury. Additionally, having a disease such as osteoporosis or arthritis increase your chances of having problems with your knees.
Injuries are the most common cause of knee problems. Sudden injuries may be caused by a direct blow to the knee or from l twisting, bending the knee, or falling on the knee. Pain, bruising or swelling may appear and nerves or blood vessels may be damaged during the injury. The knee or lower leg may feel numb, weak, cold, tingle, or look pale or blue.
Acupuncture is used to treat pain, inflammation and other uncomfortable symptoms resulting from knee pain. Patients who receive acupuncture to alleviate knee pain will express that their acupuncture treatments have allowed for a significant reduction in pain levels and consumption of significantly fewer over-the-counter medications. Acute knee pain can often be cleared up in a few sessions and more treatments may be needed if there is a more serious condition. Regardless of whether your knee pain has been bothering you for a few days or for many years, acupuncture can provide a safe and effective treatment solution for you.
