ARTHRITIS PAIN RELIEF WITH ACUPUNCTURE
There are many different "itises".
The word "itis" means inflammation - and inflammation means pain; possibly accompanied by swelling, redness, and heat. Depending on which type of tissue is inflamed determines if it is tendonitis (inflamed tendon), bursitis (inflamed bursa), or arthritis (inflammation of a bone or joint.)
One component of all painful conditions is restricted circulation in the painful area. By stimulating increased circulation to the area we can cause your body to bring special healing materials (red and white blood cells, lymphatic fluid, naturally produced anti-inflammatory chemicals like cortisol, etc.) needed to bring down the pain of arthritis.
The insertion of fine, sterile, stainless steel needles "tricks" the body into responding to a potentially damaging event; but since the needles don't cause any actual damage the healing materials sent to the area resolve the existing arthritis pain - and it's all done without potentially harmful drugs or surgery.
