Acupuncture Treatment for Knee Pain at Acubody
People experience knee pain in the UK for various reasons, including injuries, arthritis or other underlying health conditions. However, we often see knee pain as prevalent among individuals who are actively involved in sports or physical activities, as well as those with occupations that require prolonged standing or repetitive knee movements.
At Acubody, we offer knee pain acupuncture as an alternative form of therapy that aims to offer targeted pain relief as well as address the root causes of this ailment.
How Can Acupuncture Help with Knee Pain?
- Acupuncture can stimulate the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain-relieving chemicals. By doing so, acupuncture may help reduce the severity of pain in the affected area.
- Muscle tightness can potentially exacerbate knee pain. Tight muscles, particularly those surrounding the knee joint, can affect the alignment and mechanics of the knee, leading to increased stress and strain on the joint. This can result in heightened discomfort and pain. Acupuncture may help relax the muscles surrounding the knee joint, which can also help reduce tension and improve flexibility.
- Acupuncture has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects. By reducing inflammation around the knee joint, treatment may help alleviate pain caused by swelling and improve mobility.
- Increased blood flow is believed to be a primary benefit of acupuncture, which can facilitate the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to tissues and organs, promoting overall healing and reducing pain.
When combined with the wider body of traditional Chinese medicine practices, acupuncture aims to address the root causes of pain, not just the symptoms.
