Acupuncture for Knee Pain
Acupuncture for knee pain is a proven technique in reducing pain and stiffness and improving function. It is effective in cases such as arthritis of the knees, leg pain due to muscular or ligamentous injury and swelling.
Due to the low blood circulation in the soft tissue structures of the knee such as tendons and ligaments, acupuncture is very helpful in increasing blood flow to these areas to enhance the body’s natural healing abilities and reduce recovery time. For minor soft tissue tears, although healing is more a matter of time due to this little blood flow, pain management is essential in regaining and maintaining full range of motion. Acupuncture is very effective in this aspect during your recovery phase. At this stage, acupuncture treatments for knee pain focus on decreasing the inflammatory process and the pain levels, as well as helping with stabilizing the soft tissue affected.
Whether you are carrying a meniscus, ACL, or any other kind of knee injury, by creating a thorough plan, at Bern Akupunktur I try to intervene by not only taking you through the recovery stage, but also through the maintenance and prevention process.
