					Acupuncture and Arthritis

Acupuncture is a therapy that has long been held in high esteem because
of the beliefs that the Chinese had about its capabilities. However, if
you are currently living with arthritis then there is something that you
should know about the acupuncture therapy. For starters, there have been
arthritis patients who have experienced a great relief from the arthritis
pain that they have felt. Whether or not acupuncture works for everyone
dealing with this kind of chronic pain is unknown, but what is known is
that the therapy does work and there should be lots more research being
poured into this age-old technique.

Theories about Why Acupuncture Cures Arthritis

Many chronic arthritis have said that they feel instantly better after a
round of the acupuncture therapy. This is not only an astounding finding,
but many people and researchers don't exactly know why it works. However,
the only existing and current theory comes from the Chinese because they
believed that the therapy of acupuncture could cure pretty much any pain
in the body. For starters, the Chinese believe that there are various
acupoints located along points in the body that trigger the pain that is
felt, especially during a bout of chronic arthritis. If acupuncture
needles are then pointed towards those acupoints in the body, it is
believed that the pain will cease and the individual can go on living a
healthy life.

This theory certainly is held true over the very many lives that have
tried it. More than ten million Americans currently suffer from some form
of arthritis, and many of those patients feel as if they have nothing to
lose when trying acupuncture. Indeed, they do not have anything to lose,
because the Chinese believed that this form of therapy, even if it
wouldn't work for some people, certainly would not be of harm to anyone.

Where to Receive Arthritis Acupuncture

If one is looking to find a cure for their arthritis and they are looking
for an acupuncture cure specifically, there are many places one can go in
order to try this age-old therapy. For starters, universities and
colleges along with research centers are usually more than happy to take
on arthritis patients in their effort to find out more about why
acupuncture does work. Along with these kinds of establishments, though,
there are also set acupuncture therapists that work alongside patients in
their private offices, and these are the offices where the more
individualized acupuncture care can take place. If one is not able to
find an acupuncture therapist in his or her own city or town then chances
are that they will have to drive a short distance to find someone who is
interested in the therapy.

Nevertheless, though, there are thousands of places across the United
States that are interested in pursuing the art of acupuncture in order to
cure arthritis. What arthritis patients do know and what acupuncture
therapists have known for quite some time is that the therapy does work
well and it only take a little bit of believe and confidence in order to
know that one will actually get better from the terrible and plaguing
arthritis.
