Acupuncture delivers serious relief
In the early stages of RA, a primary goal of Western medicine is to slow down the inflammation response, thereby limiting the end damage to the joints. Acupuncture attempts to relieve arthritis pain by stimulating the body’s natural painkilling response and improving the function of affected joints. By stimulating blood flow, your body is able to deliver oxygen and nutrients to an are that is in serious need of support.
