Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a serious autoimmune disease that can affect many organs and tissues of the body by causing chronic inflammation.  It is a progressive disease that has the potential to cause joint destruction and permanent disability.

Rheumatoid arthritis occurs when the tissues of the human body are attacked by their own immune system.  Its primary targets are the synovial joints, which are the most movable, common type of joint in the human body. Rheumatoid arthritis not only causes chronic inflammation to the joints themselves, but also to the surrounding tissue, which can be quite painful, especially when attempting to move.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an effective healing method that has been a part of traditional Chinese medicine for over 3,000 years.  It is used both as a preventative health measure, and to effectively treat the symptoms of arthritis, and other health problems. The procedure utilizes fine needles for a painless, therapeutic process that works well to relieve joint pain, to provide general relaxation, and to produce regional anesthesia.

Acupuncture has a non-invasive treatment that does not have any reported negative side effects. It works to regulate the flow of Qi and is used as part of a holistic treatment modality in which the acupuncturist treats the entire person, rather than placing focus on just the symptoms of a given disease.

A 2008 review in the Journal of Arthritis and Rheumatism revealed six studies reporting a decrease in pain when acupuncture was used to treat subjects' symptoms.  Five of the studies showed a reduction in ESR, which is a blood test for inflammation, and three found lower CRP rates, which is another indicator of inflammation.
