How Acupuncture Can Help Relieve Osteoporosis Pain, Manhattan, New York

Over 24 million adults in America suffer from osteoporosis, an affliction that affects the bones, causing them to lose density with time, and leaves patients more susceptible to neck and back pain and frequent fractures. An effective adjunctive treatment is acupuncture, as it helps to balance the hormones and other internal energetic imbalances contributing to the loss of bone mass. If you’re interested in finding a natural, lasting solution to the problem, here is how this approach can help. 

How Acupuncture Improves Bone Density

The bones in your body are continuously rebuilding. However, in patients with osteoporosis, the ability to replace bone tissue and bone building cells diminishes, compromising the bone density over time. According to some research, this is often the result of a weak kidney energetic function. An acupuncturist can treat specific points to stimulate and strengthen this aspect of the system. Acupuncture also helps the body to move any stagnant energy, optomising the flow of Qi & Blood. This is important for proper functioning of all of the systems of the body including the kidney energetic system which has correspondences to the low back, bones, hair and knees.

Strengthening the kidney energy by way of acupuncture and Chinese medicine is a valuable defense strategy against osteoporosis. The earlier you seek treatment the better. Your acupuncturist can help stimulate new bone growth as well as prevent the decrease of bone density by treating specific acupuncture points, counseling you on good lifestyle, diet and supplement recommendations, and often prescribing an appropriate herbal formula.

Other Symptoms Acupuncture Relieves

acupunctureBack pain is one of the most common symptoms associated with osteoporosis.  Acupuncture is very effective in alleviating muscle pain as well. It reduces inflammation, relaxes tight muscles and provides support to the skeletal system. The patient can then begin a gentle exercise program  that includes walking and weights training which encourages the restoration of bone density as well.
