Acupuncture offers many benefits that help relieve the symptoms many arthritis patients feel on a regular basis. It improves blood flow to injured areas and removes blockages along the body's meridians. Arthritis sufferers often lose their range of motion and mobility as the inflammation and pain begin to wear away at their joints. By inserting needles near the arthritic joint, blood flow is restored to the entire area and inflammation is allowed to dissipate. With the inflammation gone and the surrounding tissues strengthened, the patient can begin to exercise the joint healing any damage and reducing the symptoms of arthritis.
There are many treatment options for arthritis that work well alone or in conjunction with one another. Acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, trigger point therapy, physical therapy, and nutritional support go hand in hand to help bring about a natural healing response. A diet that contains foods that fight inflammation will help to control the swelling that is often characteristic of an arthritic joint. Chiropractic adjustments help to keep the body in motion. Maintaining the ability to exercise keeps the blood circulating freely throughout the body and also keeps the body strong enough to prevent injury and damage to the joint.
Arthritis may not be able to be fully controlled by diet, but it can strengthen the rest of the body so that the pain and inflammation do not prevent a person from being active and participating in activities they enjoy. Nutrition will also supply the nutrients that are needed to keep the bones as well as the soft tissues healthy and strong. A nutritious diet, combined with exercise and adequate amounts of rest, provides the body with everything it needs to keep arthritis symptoms at a minimum. This type of diet would contain several servings of calcium/magnesium rich foods, as well as proteins for building strong muscles and blood cells.
