Acupuncture Knee Pain

Acupuncture is possibly the only traditional healing technique that still exists. Acupuncture practitioners work by stimulating certain specific points located on the body, by inserting fine needles through your skin. It is a practice that has been frequently used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture and its pain healing techniques have been mentioned in several studies, which suggest how acupuncture can help ease knee pain, lower back pain, osteoarthritis and neck pain. It may also be helpful in reducing the frequency of headaches caused as a result of tension and migraines. As a result, acupuncture has gradually become one of the most reasonable options for all those people suffering from different types of chronic pain. Nevertheless, clinical practice does not agree to these facts.

Acupuncture has a profound effect on the body and brain; however, it is still not clear as to how it will be possible to measure the same. Recent evidence suggests that there are several factors, such as belief and expectations that are often unrelated to the concept of acupuncture needling. But, these factors do play crucial roles in the overall beneficial effects of this useful pain relief acupuncture treatment.

How Does Acupuncture Knee Pain’s Treatment Helps?

There are several ligaments and tissues in the knee that can be affected by conditions like arthritis, osteoarthritis and other conditions, which lead to knee pain. Knee pain may be triggered by over or under exercising. In some cases, knee pain may be caused due to a sedentary lifestyle as well. Acupuncture identifies the cause of your condition and follows a comprehensive method of treatment that will surely give you the much needed relief within a short period of time.

From the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine, there are innumerable causes of knee pain. An effective pain relief acupuncture treatment is what a patient needs to get proper relief from the condition. At our acupuncture clinic, we have appointed skilled acupuncturists having hands-on experience in this field of treatment. They deploy several methods of treatment, including needle insertion and massage therapies to reset muscle imbalance and support the knee to relieve pain. We are the most reliable acupuncture clinic in Singapore with the reputation of having helped our patients to get back to their normal course of life at AcupunctureSg.

Diagnosis for Knee Pain

Acupuncturists are trained to diagnose and evaluate all kinds of painful conditions affecting the body, which includes knee pain. They perform certain physical exams and even use orthopedic tests based on the Western principles of medicine. These evaluations help them to draw a conclusion and determine the cause of pain. As experienced acupuncturists, we aim to evaluate the pain before recommending treatment to our patients.

According to the acupuncture theory, there are certain meridians in our body that are often obstructed due to various environmental and physical factors. Obstruction is the source/cause of pain. Obstruction may be the result of emotional stress, injury as well as other factors. So, each patient has to be evaluated depending on the meridian that is affected and the body part.

The Benefits of Acupuncture Knee Pain

Acupuncture not only involves the insertion of needles today, but there are other techniques too. Of late, the course of treatment for acupuncture has evolved to include different massages that work simultaneously with needle insertion technique. When treating a patient with acupuncture for knee pain, a combination of distal and location points is used for removing obstruction, relaxing muscles and improving the circulation of life force in the affected areas. To be precise, acupuncture is applied near or particularly on the knees as well as other parts of the leg, where the affected meridian is located.

Overall, we believe in safe and effective methods of treatment for knee pain using the principles of acupuncture. Our treatment will help you to get rid of knee pain and live a comfortable and pain-free life.
