What Your Doctor probably didn’t tell you about Osteoarthritis

If you’re like 43 million other Americans with joint pain you might be suffering from osteoarthritis.  The most common form of arthritis, osteoarthritis is caused by wear and tear on the joints.  Eventually over the course of our lives the protective cartilage in our joints breaks down causing pain.

According to articles in PubMed, and WebMD, there is no known cure.  But before you go losing all hope, remember that though there might not be a “cure” there is definitely help!

Take a look at this article from the Huffington Post.  

The benefits of acupuncture for osteoarthritis have been known in Asian countries for centuries.  But its efficacy has only just started gaining recognition here in the west. It’s wonderful when we get this type of confirmation from a medical study.

So if you have osteoarthritis and would like to reduce pain without drugs or surgery, try acupuncture.  You’ll be happy you did!
