Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine for Knee Pain

Knee pain is a common complaint with patients visiting physicians each year because of knee pain or knee related problems.

The knee is the largest joint in the body. Made up of the lower end of the Femur (thighbone) that rotates on the upper end of the Tibia (shinbone) and the Patella (kneecap) that slides in a groove on the end of the Femur. There are a number of muscles that straighten the leg at the knee and Tendons that attach the muscles to the above-mentioned bones; ligaments help control motion by connecting bones; and cartilage that cushion the knee and absorb shock during motion.

Because of its size and complex structure, it is one of the most frequently injured joints. Knee pain and injuries can be caused by trauma such as a torn or ruptured ligament; broken or fractured kneecap; torn cartilage; or any trauma that cause damage to the knee or strains the knee beyond its normal range of motion. Other causes of knee pain are arthritis; infections; cysts. Being overweight can result in knee problems from the excessive strain on ligaments and cartilage.

Acupuncture and be used most efficiently in the treatment of Knee pain and knee related problems.

Herbs used are based on ancient formulas but in a now modern capsule, tablet or pill form making them much simpler to take.

Western Herbal Medicine

Every culture in the world has a history and tradition of herbal medicine and herbalists have diagnosed, prescribed and formulated medicines for their patients. Herbal Medicine has existed as long as humanity itself, the use of herbs goes back to the beginning of time.

Hippocrates was the first man who practised medicine as an art and described plants as medicine.
No one herb can be said to cure any aliment, a herbal formula in the correct proportions, with each element working together helps nature in her healing and rejuvenating process.

A combination of herbs is better, each adding their specific element to the formula to create a near perfect balance. The process of metabolism, the breaking down and the building up of cells is kept in harmony with the consumption of plants and their extracts. These extracts have an influence on gland activity and may restore health to afflicted parts of the body. Since the body cannot retain these essential elements it is necessary to provide them.


Anti-Aging Treatments

Taking care of your health, eating good nutritious food, releasing muscle tension and stress may all slow down the effects of ageing. Ageing is a natural process our bodies go through. Healthy living may slow the hands of time and improve appearance.

The ultimate goal is to reach old age free of illness and aches and pains with a healthy clear thinking mind and attitude.

Nutrition and vitamin supplements may decrease glycation and over oxidation of cells.

Acupuncture and Chinese herbs treat the whole body by decreasing stress, balancing hormones, improving sleep and skin texture as well as aiding in clearing toxins and improving mood.

Massage therapy promotes a sense of well-being which may prevent aliments, decrease the stress response, improve circulation and increase the break down cellulite as well as improving posture.
