Acupuncture For The Knees

For years, studies have offered conflicting opinions on whether exercise is good for knees. A new report from the American College of Sports Medicine provides evidence that exercise is, in fact, good for the knees. Acupuncture can also improve knee health by relieving pain and strengthening joint function. “Several studies have already examined the impact of physical activity on the knee as a whole, but none have looked at the effect of physical activity on individual parts of the knee,” says Flavia Cicuttini, M.D., of the Monash University in Australia. “As it turns out, exercise affects each part of the knee differently, which helps explain why there have been conflicting reports for so long.” While exercise is linked to osteophytes, or bony spurs, there are no detrimental changes to joint space, the place where cartilage is housed. Exercise has beneficial effects on cartilage integrity, with evidence of greater volumes and fewer defects. Acupuncture can be beneficial for individuals with knee osteoarthritis. Acupuncture can decrease symptoms and improve quality of life when integrated into routine care. Acupuncture is most effective for individuals with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis who have moderate pain despite conventional medical therapy. Acupuncture for knee osteoarthritis: • Decreases swelling. • Reduces stiffness and pain. • Improves functional ability. • Reduces dependence on medication. Acupuncture & Massage College’s Community Clinic offers acupuncture, herbal medicine and massage for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis as well as a wide range of other health conditions.

Stop Smoking With Acupuncture

From 1965 to 2007, the percentage of people who smoke 10-20 or more cigarettes per day declined significantly, with these declines greater in California than in the rest of the U.S., according to a new JAMA study. Acupuncture for smoking cessation can help you manage the discomfort of withdrawal symptoms. Since the first surgeon general’s report on smoking and health (1964), there has been a major decline in smoking prevalence. During this period, California has consistently led the United States in using public policies to reduce cigarette smoking, and there were faster declines in lung cancer rates in California compared with the remaining United States. “The rapid decline in prevalence of 10 or more cigarettes per day smoking is consistent with the increased incidence of cessation that occurred following the dissemination of early reports that smoking caused cancer,” the authors say. If you feel it’s time to finally kick the habit, but don’t have the willpower, you should consider acupuncture treatment for smoking cessation. Acupuncture can ease breathing, improve circulation and normalize blood pressure. Benefits of smoking cessation with acupuncture include: Reduced cold and flu illnesses, decreased rates of pneumonia and bronchitis and improved health. Acupuncture effectively manages withdrawal symptoms such as: • Increased appetite. • Sleep disturbances. • Concentration difficulties. • Irritability. Acupuncture & Massage College’s Community Clinic offers acupuncture and herbal medicine for smoking cessation as well as a wide range of other health conditions.
