There are, however, other treatments that can be beneficial to easing knee pain. One such treatment is acupuncture.
Why do people experience knee pain?
There are a variety of roots that could be causing your knee pain. For example, you may have had knee surgery and are in the postoperative recovery and rehabilitation phase. You may have a knee injury as a result of playing sports such as football, tennis, skiing, etc. If so, you could need ongoing treatment. Arthritis in the knee can also cause real discomfort for many people.
What treatments are available for knee pain?
Acupuncture can either be a stand-alone treatment or combined with conventional medical treatments such as anti-inflammatory medication to alleviate pain and/or physical therapies. We can talk you through the best approach to manage your knee pain with acupuncture.
Tell me more about acupuncture and knee pain
Before you have acupuncture treatment for knee pain, we’ll take a full medical history from you and talk through your treatment options. This will include how many sessions you’ll need and how much they’ll cost. A course of acupuncture will be more beneficial than a single treatment when treating knee pain.
During your acupuncture sessions, very fine hair-thin sterile needles will be inserted into relevant pressure points on the body. Your brain will then produce natural endorphins that are beneficial for the treatment of pain.
Is there a one-size-fits-all option?
Not at all. No two patients are the same. At Acubody, we treat each person as an individual and take into account not only your medical history but also the impact your knee pain has on your life. At your initial consultation, we will ask you questions about your knee, the pain and also your lifestyle. That way, we have a full picture of you as an individual.
Will it hurt?
Some patients experience no pain at all, and others do. The honest answer to this question is that it may hurt. However, you should remember that the sterile needles we use are very fine and ought not to cause you any pain when we insert them.
You may feel a tingling or an ache, or what we describe as a heavy distending feeling. Depending on your own responses, this may feel quite pleasant. Everyone responds differently, and some people are more sensitive than others.
What’s true is that patients become accustomed to the feelings and quickly associate them with the benefits they experience as a result of treatment.
