Acupuncture Treatment For Osteoarthritic Pain And Inflammation Of The Knee

Adarsh M. Kumar, PhD, and Xue-lan Wen, MD

Abstract

Acupuncture, the ancient Chinese art and science of healing, is now accepted in the scientific community as one of the effective analgesic and anti-inflammatory modalities. The main principle of the therapeutic effect of acupuncture is the stimulation of selective acupoints, situated along meridians in the body. Stimulation is initiated by inserting needles of specific length and thickness. Performing acupuncture on specific points is believed to restore bodily functions by promoting the natural flow of vital energy throughout the system. Energy becomes obstructed in “dis-eased” body systems that are exposed to unavoidably stressful conditions.
