Naturopathic Treatments for Knee Pain and Injuries
Just because you’ve suffered a knee injury or are experiencing intermittent, acute or chronic knee pain doesn’t necessarily mean the only solution are pharmaceuticals, invasive surgery or long, arduous physical therapy regimes. Some of those traditional treatments may be part of a comprehensive solution, but naturopathic treatment methods may also prove to be highly effective for treating knee problems.
Cupping Therapy for Knee Pain Relief
There is a long history of knee pain sufferers finding relief thanks to cupping therapy. Clinical studies have shown the effectiveness of knee osteoarthritis management with cupping therapy.
A 2013 study published in the Journal of Advanced Pharmaceutical Technology & Research found that knee cupping therapy was just as effective at relieving symptoms as 650 mg of TYLENOL taken three times daily.
Considering some of the dangerous side effects associated with TYLENOL and other over the counter and prescription medications, many patients are turning to knee cupping therapy to manage pain and the other symptoms of osteoarthritis and knee conditions.
Treating Knee Pain With Acupuncture
Knee acupuncture is becoming an increasingly popular alternative treatment for managing knee osteoarthritis (KOA) and other disorders that cause knee pain. As with cupping therapy, knee acupuncture is a natural, non-surgical method of delivering knee pain relief without having to resort to medications that could prove dangerous if taken too frequently or for too long.
One study performed in 2016 suggests that knee acupuncture, in addition to providing pain relief for KOA and improving mobility, may also stimulate cartilage repair.
Further studies are being performed, but you can start enjoying the life-improving benefits of knee acupuncture today by scheduling a consultation with Desert Orthopedic Specialists.
