So, I get asked a lot (And treat often) if acupuncture helps arthritis. It does! It helps all sorts of knee pain from sports injuries to plain old accidents. But yes, arthritis as well. If you want a very long, detailed analysis, as I know some skeptics do, please read the National Institute of Health analysis:
"On the basis of the findings of the studies reviewed, acupuncture should be considered a viable adjunct or alternative treatment of knee pain and dysfunction associated with osteoarthritis of the knee for the thousands of individuals across the country who are suffering from symptoms of this chronic disease."
