Tears, Sprains and Bursitis (and More) — Acupuncture Helps with Knee Pain!

Happy Knees with Acupuncture!

Happy Knees with Acupuncture!

Let’s face it, we depend upon our knees. We sometimes can ask more from them than they can handle, especially athletes, or as we age. Conventional medicine uses drugs to reduce pain and inflammation or knee surgery to repair ligaments or replace knee joints when they’ve been injured. However, patients take on risks and possibly undergo lengthy rehabilitation with knee surgery. There is a safe and viable alternative. Acupuncture can revitalize the energetic systems surrounding the knee, enabling the body to heal the knee tissues.

ACL tear is one of the most debilitating knee injuries, in which case a knee-stabilizing ligament tears. Acupuncture helps to stabilize the knee muscles during the healing process and decrease pain and swelling. Less pain is good!

Often when people say they’ve torn the cartilage of the knee, they’re referring to the meniscus. A torn meniscus occurs very commonly in sports participation and even in the motions of every day life. The meniscus is a crescent-shaped tissue that cushions the knee from the leg bones and allows a wide range or motion. When the meniscus tears, the knee’s range of motion becomes limited. When the tear is severe, conventional medicine recommends surgery.

However, as in the case of other knee injuries, acupuncture can allow you to recover full function of the knee at a fraction of the cost and without the trauma of surgery. Without intervention, the meniscus can take a long time to heal because of limited blood flow into the area. Acupuncture is extremely effective in healing the meniscus as it increases blood flow and energy circulation, speeding up the healing process.

Cartilage tears of the knee occur from wear and tear. They affect the range of motion in the knee, since the patient will walk in such a way as to avoid pain. Acupuncture stabilizes the muscles of the knee to prevent their misuse. It also reduces pain and inflammation and speeds the healing process.

Medial collateral ligament strain occurs when the two ligaments that stabilize the knee are strained. This injury occurs commonly, resulting in pain, swelling and limited movement. Acupuncture is employed to treat the pain, swelling and inflammation that occur as a result of the injury.

Osgood-Schlatter’s Disease, or growing pains, occurs when adolescents grow very quickly. It occurs more frequently in boys than in girls and happens when the upper border of the shin bone (tibia) becomes inflamed because of the traction forces of rapid growth. Acupuncture helps to reduce the inflammation resulting from the traction and also helps lesson the traction forces.

Runner’s knee, also called patella femoral syndrome, occurs frequently in, as you probably guessed, runners. This chronic condition arises from friction between the knee cap (patella) and the thigh bone (femur). As a result, the thigh muscles become strained as they try to protect the knee. Acupuncture is very effective with runner’s knee, as it reduces pain and stimulates the muscles to ease tension, thereby reducing friction and allowing normal knee function.

Bursitis in the knee, also called prepatellar bursitis, occurs when the bursa, a fluid-filled sac at the lower end of the knee cap, becomes inflamed due to overuse. Acupuncture reduces the inflammation of this common injury and restores normal muscular tone in the area so that the friction is reduced and healing can occur.

Because of the large number of possible causes of knee pain, (we have listed only a few) we will discuss your health history with you and conduct a thorough examination of your knee and its tissues to determine the most expedient acupuncture remedy to will heal your knee quickly and restore complete function as quickly as possible! That’s worth a jump for joy!

When Every Day You’re Shuffling — Acupuncture Helps with Hip Pain!

Happy Hips!

Healthy, Happy Hips with Acupuncture!

Hips should be for shimmying, not aching!

Here’s some of what can hurt hips — the big boys are hamstring injuries, osteoarthritis, bursitis in the hip and hip fractures. Hamstring strains can also result in pain and muscular spasm. The pain arises from lower back stresses and injury from trauma. There’s help to be had!

Acupuncture is a hip helper. It serves to reduce inflammation and help the injured muscles heal more quickly. In the case of lower back strain, acupuncture helps to relieve those stresses that are causing tension so that the hamstring muscles can recover. Acupuncture also reduces the body’s reactive guarding that often contributes to further distress.

Hip pain due to osteoarthritis occurs as a result of the wear and tear of the surface of the hip joint. During the process, inflammation and pain occur, which limits the normal range of motion. If the disease progresses without intervention, eventually the hip loses its ability to function normally. However, acupuncture relieves the inflammation and muscle guarding that cause bursitis hip pain. Acupuncture also restores circulation to the hip joints to allow them to heal. It supports healthy hormone function which will help support the joints’ integrity,  With acupuncture, it is possible for you to return to normal levels of activity pain free!

Hip pain due to bursitis occurs when the bursa, a fluid-filled sac that surrounds the joint and lubricates it, becomes inflamed. Bursitis responds very well to acupuncture as it reduces inflammation and speeds healing.

In the case of fracture, acupuncture can support recovery by reducing muscular guarding, helping the body to produce pain-relieving substances, decreasing inflammation and increasing circulation to speed healing.

Let acupuncture help your hips get back to moving you forward!

Pain, Inflammation and Shin Splints, Oh My! Acupuncture Helps Fleet Footers!

Ease Knee Issues with Acupuncture

Ease Knee Issues with Acupuncture

Shooting pains right behind your shin bone — ouch!  Has your hop, skip and a jump has been reduced to a hobble, gimp and a slow crawl?  If you are someone that that has undergone intense athletic training, you’ve most likely experienced shin splints (or tibial stress syndrome) at some point.  It’s very common with runners, dancers, hikers, football players, and even casual walkers.

Shin splints often occur after sudden changes in physical activity. These can be changes in frequency, such as increasing the number of days you exercise each week. Changes in duration and intensity, such as running longer distances or on hills, or an intense workout after a period of inactivity can also cause shin splints.

This condition is caused by putting too much strain on the connective tissues that join the shin bones to muscle. And that can really put a hitch in your giddy-up!

But here’s good news, cowboys and cowgirls…treating shin splints with acupuncture can be very effective, especially when it is addressed early on.  Wahoo! Healing time and pain can be reduced dramatically when acupuncture is used.  A 2002 study published in the Journal of Chinese Medicine showed that athletes with shin splints who underwent acupuncture reported significantly lower pain levels than athletes who received traditional sports medicine treatments, such as anti-inflammatory medication. Subjects who received acupuncture also found that the pain interfered less with the playing of their sport. Less pain, more fun!

Not only can acupuncture reduce the pain, inflammation, and swelling associated with shin splints, it reduces the inflammation and pain of bursitis to promote recovery, and as in many of these common sports injuries, acupuncture reduces the pain, inflammation and tension of Plantar Fasciitis. It also relaxes muscles in the lower legs and low back which relate to the soles of the feet through the fascia. More dancing in the streets!

Acupuncture is also a very effective treatment for acute or chronic muscle tension and soreness, even if there is no diagnosed injury. Acupuncture relaxes the individual muscle fibers, releases endorphins, and increases blood flow to tense and blocked areas. This lets you feel better, and get out there to have some more fun!

Sports injuries often take a long time to heal, especially where ligaments or tendons are concerned. Sometimes, because of repeated use of a limb, connective tissues don’t ever have a chance to heal properly. In these cases, an athlete may come to the conclusion that an injury is permanent. Not so! All connective tissue can heal properly when given the chance and supported in the healing process. Acupuncture can speed up the healing process by returning the natural energy flow to the affected area of the body so that you can heal. Now go hit the trails!

Helpful Tips to Prevent Shin Splints 

  • Alternate high-impact activities like running and dancing with lower-impact exercises such as cycling and swimming.
  • Be gentle with yourself! Stretch before any workout (this warms up your body’s tissues, which prepares them for impact) and then warm up using your regular routine.
  • Good shoes are important! Those with flat feet or rigid arches are particularly susceptible to shin splints. Be sure to  wear quality shoes with an air or gel sole for cushioning, and adjust the laces properly before every workout.
  • Effleurage it! Performing a gentle gliding massage stroke called effleurage on your lower legs for five minutes before every workout warms up the muscles and helps remove fluid buildup caused by inflammation.

Acupuncture is Great for Knee Pain!

Cartilage tear. Osgood-Schlatter’s Disease, Runner’s Knee. Bursitis. Osteoarthritis. Ow! Knee pain!

Knee pain usually arises from injury or a degenerative problem, like one on the painful laundry list written above. Conventional medicine uses drugs to reduce pain and inflammation or knee surgery to repair ligaments or replace knee joints. However, patients take on risks and possibly undergo lengthy rehabilitation with knee surgery. There is a safe and viable alternative! Acupuncture can revitalize the energetic systems surrounding the knee, enabling the body to heal the knee tissues.

Another culprit of knee pain is the primary degenerative disease, osteoarthritis, “the degenerative joint disease.” This painful condition occurs when the cartilage, which provides a cushion between the knee bones, wears away, making every day mobility painful and difficult.

The Healthcare Medicine Institute analyzed 14 clinical trials involving 3,835 patients and concluded on its website that “Acupuncture provided significantly better relief from knee osteoarthritis pain and a larger improvement in function than sham acupuncture [or] standard care treatment.”

ACL tear is one of the most debilitating knee injuries, in which case a knee-stabilizing ligament tears. Acupuncture helps to stabilize the knee muscles during the healing process and decrease pain and swelling. Less pain is good!

No More Being Sidelined! Heal Sports Injuries with Acupuncture!

Acupuncture is an Excellent Athletic Supporter!

School is back in session, and between gym workouts, sports practices and games there can be a lot of wear and tear on the body. Athletes of all kinds can benefit from acupuncture if they’ve been injured, and acupuncture can help prevent injuries as well.

If we’re looking at serious injuries, acupuncture is also a wonderful complimentary therapy to traditional medicine in the treatment of stress fractures. In the acute phase, it eases muscle guarding, increases blood flow to the area, and decreases pain and inflammation. Longer-term, acupuncture can bring blood to the local area to assist with bone regeneration and address underlying structural and metabolic weaknesses that led to the stress fracture in the first place.

Acupuncture can be an effective treatment for repetitive use injuries like tendonitis, reducing swelling, relieving pain, decreasing inflammation and increasing blood flow to the area. If the next Pele has strained a ligament, acupuncture can be used in the acute phase to reduce swelling and pain and increase blood flow to the area to promote healing and increased range of motion. Once out of the acute phase, acupuncture can be used to balance the body’s natural muscular structure, avoid bracing from surrounding muscles, and strengthen the site of injury.

Acupuncture is also a very effective treatment for acute or chronic muscle tension and soreness, even if there is no diagnosed injury. Acupuncture relaxes the individual muscle fibers, releases endorphins, and increases blood flow to tense and blocked areas. This lets you feel better, and get out there to have some more fun!

Not only can acupuncture reduce the pain, inflammation, and swelling associated with shin splints, it reduces the inflammation and pain of bursitis to promote recovery, and as in many of these common sports injuries, acupuncture reduces the pain, inflammation and tension of Plantar Fasciitis. It also relaxes muscles in the lower legs and low back which relate to the soles of the feet through the fascia. No more running on empty!

Fun Fact: The Healthcare Medicine Institute analyzed 14 clinical trials involving 3,835 patients and concluded on its website that “Acupuncture provided significantly better relief from knee osteoarthritis pain and a larger improvement in function than sham acupuncture [or] standard care treatment.” Not-so Fun Fact: ACL tear is one of the most debilitating knee injuries, in which case a knee-stabilizing ligament tears, but here’s the good news — acupuncture helps to stabilize the knee muscles during the healing process and decrease pain and swelling.

Sports injuries often take a long time to heal, especially where ligaments or tendons are concerned. Sometimes, because of repeated use of the arm, connective tissues don’t ever have a chance to heal properly. In these cases, an athlete may come to the conclusion that an injury is permanent — not the case! All connective tissue can heal properly when given the chance and supported in the healing process. Acupuncture can speed up the healing process by returning the natural energy flow to the affected area of the body so that your arm can heal, even while you’re using it!

No pain, no gain? Not so…acupuncture can ease the pain of the strains, and let you get back to what you do best, beating your own best time and score! And get out there to play!

Arm Pain? The Solution Points Towards Acupuncture…

Image

Arm Pain Relieved by Acupuncture

From a broken bone to tendonitis to nerve compression or bruising, the causes of arm pain are many and varied. Sometimes neck problems can cause a pinched nerve, resulting in pain in the arm. Other times, a sports injury can leave tendons inflamed and tender. Regardless of the source of pain and the severity of the injury, acupuncture will touch on points specific to the particular cause and can improve circulation while promoting healing. We work with you to compile a health history to determine the cause and then develop a treatment plan to resolve that particular issue. Often long-term arm pain can dissolve with just a few sessions!

When arm pain results from a sports injury, it can take a long time to heal, especially where ligaments or tendons are concerned. Sometimes, because of repeated use of the arm, connective tissues don’t ever have a chance to heal properly. In these cases, an athlete may come to the conclusion that an injury is permanent. This is mistaken thinking. All connective tissue can heal properly when given the chance and supported in the healing process. Acupuncture can speed up the healing process by returning the natural energy flow to the affected area of the body so that your arm can heal, even while you’re using it!

In the case of elbow pain, also called tennis elbow, the forearm muscles and tendons are stressed. As a result, tendonitis, bursitis or arthritis can develop. Repeated hand, wrist or forearm movements – playing tennis, gardening, throwing, typing or even playing the piano – can cause inflammation of the connective tissues surrounding the elbow. Acupuncture on points specific to the elbow can effectively heal the connective tissues, reducing the pain. Acupuncture also releases endorphins that soothe the pain while stimulating circulation and the body’s own healing abilities.

As in elbow pain, carpal tunnel syndrome results when the wrist and forearm are stressed, often by repeated motions of the hand.  The median nerve enters the hand through a narrow area called the carpal tunnel. Swelling will pinch the nerve and cause pain or numbness, often affecting the function of the hand. Many common activities can result in carpal tunnel syndrome: playing keyboard instruments, typing, writing, painting and playing racquet sports. Acupuncture on points specific to the wrist will relieve the inflammation and reduce the swelling, reversing the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome and allowing renewed function of the hand and wrist.

A few testimonials to this effect, showing how Acupuncture helped heal their arm pain —

 “After other medical practitioners had been unsuccessful in treating my bursitis, I had reached the point of not being able to lift my arm. I was depressed and desperate at the loss of function. I couldn’t trust the arm to perform as needed. After a short series of treatments, I was pain free and regained total use of my shoulder and the bursitis has not recurred.  I, the skeptic, have become a believer in the benefits acupuncture can create. Looking for a concerned, knowledgeable specialist interested in your total health, look no further than Ingri.”  – Ronald Wendschuh, Redding, CT

  “Hi Ingri, I’ve been treated by you… over 15 years ago for a tendon sheath problem in my right arm… which prevented me from doing even everyday tasks, such as writing, lifting even light objects, and extending my arm to reach for anything.  The treatment was fully effective, and I avoided costly surgery, that offered only a chance of relief.  I am symptom free today, 15 years later. Thanks.”   –  Robert
