Acupuncture for Knee Pain

Acupuncture for Knee Pain, Upper West Side, Manhattan, NYC

We've all experienced knee pain at different times in our lives. More than likely the pain will decrease when the body heals itself naturally, but other times it can linger around or even get worse with time. 

Knee pain is very common and can be caused by several factors such as arthritis, a torn ligament, an autoimmune disorder causing inflammation or even being overweight. When you choose the option of seeking an Acupuncturist, your diagnosis from your medical doctor is helpful but treatment will not coincide with their diagnosis.

Your course of therapy is based on a pattern of symptoms you're having that incorporates all aspects of life, even more so than just having pain. For instance, if your pain is predominately caused by being overweight (your knees cannot handle excessive weight), we will work on reducing pain but we will also include a plan to help you lose weight.

If your knees have pain due to past surgery, we will recommend a course of treatment that surrounds moving your blood and energy in the area to release scar tissue. No matter your condition, knee pain is pretty easy to resolve but it will take a series of treatments. With the help of acupuncture, you will gain normalcy again, such as walking and climbing stairs; and more importantly, pain medication will slowly start to be reduced as well as the side-effects acquired by its usage.
