Can Acupuncture Help Arthritis?

Arthritis can be an extremely debilitating condition. Many anti-inflammatory non-steroid based medicines are prescribed to patients suffering from arthritis. The problem with such medicines is that, in the long term, they may only harm the body and reduce its immunity. The benefit of acupuncture is that it is a natural method of treatment that has no side effects at all.
Acupuncture has been cited as a natural cure for arthritis symptoms by the World Health Organization since 1980. Acupuncture refers to needle therapy. Acupuncturists insert tiny needles into the body at strategic locations or acupuncture points that are known to be high-energy spots. The stimulation provided has various physical and psychological benefits for arthritis patients.
Acupuncture increases the blood flow to various parts of the body by allowing the positive Chi energy to flow freely through all the meridians or channels of energy in the body. The increased blood flow results in reduction of inflammation at the joints, which is one of the leading causes of pain in arthritis patients. In addition, acupuncture also encourages the release of endorphins in the body. Endorphins are the body’s natural painkillers and feel good chemicals. The arthritis patients thus feel much better after an acupuncture session. Thus, acupuncture also helps relieve related symptoms and consequences of arthritis like sleeping problems, fatigue and depression.
Acupuncture has another major benefit, which is to strengthen the body’s immune system. People suffering from rheumatoid arthritis experience severe pain because the natural membrane surrounding the joints is falsely attacked by the immune system. The attack causes the natural membrane to be substituted with scar tissue. This results in narrowed joint spaces and excruciating pain. Acupuncture improves the body’s immune system and slows down this process. In some cases it can even prevent rheumatoid arthritis.
In general, acupuncture has been found to be effective in treating various types of arthritis. Some types of arthritis are primarily physical or external; others have a deeper internal or psychological root cause. Acupuncture aims to correct both the external and internal causes of arthritis. It not only provides relief from the symptoms and consequences but also seeks to alleviate the cause and cure the problem from the root. Thus, acupuncture is the ideal therapy for people suffering from arthritis.
