What is Arthritis?
This is a painful and quite often a very debilitating condition that’s characterized by inflammation within one or more joints. Two of the most common forms are Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. While these two forms have very different causes, risk factors and effects on the body, they often share a common symptom — persistent joint pain.
For many people, the pain and inflammation cannot be avoided as the body ages. In fact, most people over the age of 50 show some signs of arthritis as joints naturally degenerate over time.
Fortunately, arthritis can often be managed with acupuncture. Numerous studies have found acupuncture to offer relief of many different types of the disease. And best of all, it doesn’t come with the adverse side effects associated with arthritis medication.
