Can Acupuncture Help Aching Joints?

Is the cold damp weather making your joints ache? 

Does your arthritis flare up at this time of year? 

It is not unusual for joint aches and pains to feel worse in winter.  Many patients say their symptoms improve when they go on holiday somewhere warm and sunny.  Why, even an English summer can ease some of the pain and stiffness!   

Winter, with the sort of cold that seeps right into your bones, can make joint pain a lot worse.  So, what can be done to help? 

Acupuncture and Joint Pain 

The British Acupuncture Council has conducted extensive research and concluded that acupuncture can be helpful in alleviating pain in both osteo- and rheumatoid arthritis.  Over 8 million people in the UK are affected by osteoarthritis, with more women being affected than men.  This is the ‘wear and tear’ type of arthritis caused by joint injury or overuse of certain joints.  

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition that causes inflammation and damage in connective tissue throughout the body including the joints.  It often appears first in smaller joints like those of the fingers or wrist, while osteoarthritis is commonly felt in hips, knees, and neck. 

Standard treatments for both forms of arthritis include painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs.  These medicines can have adverse effects on the stomach and digestive tract though, increasing the risk of gastric bleeding and ulcers. 

Acupuncture for joint pain has no such adverse side effects.  It is exceptionally well tolerated, and can be safely used alongside any other treatment – both complementary and conventional.  In fact, one study found Acupuncture to be more effective in treating osteoarthritis in the knee than physiotherapy! 

How Does Acupuncture Relieve Joint Pain? 

Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture eases joint pain and arthritis by; 

  • Stimulating the release of pain-killing endorphins in your nervous system
  • Inhibiting the actions of inflammatory chemicals in your body
  • Altering the way your brain processes pain by modulating natural opioid chemicals in your nervous system
  • Aiding microcirculation to ease swelling and fluid retention in joint tissues

Your Joint Pain Is Unique 

As an Acupuncturist I am trained to treat you as a person, not just the diagnosis you walk in with.  My treatments are personalised to suit your individual needs and you will find that I place needles in several locations, not just at the site of pain.   

I also like to offer nutrition and lifestyle tips to support your healing.

Top tips for joint pain include; 

  • Drink plenty of water; at least 1.5l of plain, room temperature (or warm) water each day to support the production of synovial fluid in your joints 
  • Include warming and anti-inflammatory herbs and spices in your diet: ginger, black pepper, cinnamon and turmeric are all helpful
  • Ensure you have a good intake of omega-3 oils from oily fish like salmon, sardines, mackerel, anchovies, pilchards and trout.  Vegetarian sources include walnuts, flaxseed oil, hemp seed oil and pumpkin seed oil.

Knee arthritis? Acupuncture better than Physiotherapy!

Natural Osteoarthritis TreatmentA new study has shown how Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture achieved far better results for the treatment of osteoarthritis in the knee, when compared to physiotherapy.

The small-scale study involved 50 patients with knee osteoarthritis (the ‘wear and tear’ type of arthritis, as opposed to rheumatoid arthritis) being randomly assigned to receive either TCM Acupuncture or physiotherapy.

The Acupuncture was delivered via 7 acupuncture points on the knee, once every other day, for 4 weeks.  Those in the physiotherapy group received treatment 5 times a week, for 4 weeks.

Both groups experienced an improvement in symptoms, but those in the Acupuncture group reported;

  • Better improvements in total symptom scores
  • Better improvements in pain, stiffness, and physical function
  • Significant improvements in joint hydration and the biochemical composition of the cartilage, as measured by the rate of cartilage degeneration on MRI scans

These changes in joint hydration and cartilage composition were not seen at all in the physiotherapy group, and suggest the Acupuncture may be promoting cartilage repair.

Given that 10% of over-55 year olds in the UK suffer with knee osteoarthritis, and around 25% of these people are severely disabled by it, these study results are an important finding for sufferers wishing to choose more effective and sustainable treatment options.

Acupuncture and Moxa

Previous studies have found moxibustion to be helpful for osteoarthritis: this can be used alone, or as part of an Acupuncture treatment.  Moxa is a dried herb preparation made from mugwort.  The herb is burned, and the heat supports the movement of Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) around the body.  It gives a wonderful warming and relaxing sensation!

How does TCM Acupuncture relieve knee osteoarthritis?

Each Acupuncture patient in the study mentioned above received the same treatment, using the same Acupuncture points, so that the treatments remained standardised and could be compared accurately.  In my own Clinic, I treat each person as the unique individual they are so your treatment may be different to someone else who has the same problem.

The needling works by;

  • Stimulating nerves in your muscles and knee joint that release natural pain-releasing endorphins and alter the way your brain processes pain
  • Inhibiting inflammatory chemicals in your body
  • Modulating the actions of natural opioid chemicals in your nervous system
  • Aiding microcirculation to ease swelling and fluid retention in your knee

Acupuncture is safe and effective, and can be used alongside conventional medications.  My approach is truly holistic so I will also discuss lifestyle and diet suggestions to support the actions of your Acupuncture treatment;

  • Gentle movement and exercise (yoga and Tai Chi are especially helpful)
  • Drinking plenty of warm or room temperature water to support joint hydration and removal of waste toxins
  • Including natural warming and anti-inflammatory herbs and spices in your diet such as turmeric, ginger, and black pepper.

back pain cartoonOnly last year NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) changed its mind about recommending Acupuncture for back care, removing it from the list of non-invasive treatment options for back pain and sciatica.

Now, the American College of Physicians have released a document entitled ‘Non-invasive Treatments for Acute, Subacute, and Chronic Low Back Pain: A Clinical Practice Guideline from the American College of Physicians’ that includes Acupuncture, endorsing it for both acute and chronic back pain.

Confusing, huh!

This kind of contradictory advice is so unhelpful, especially when back pain sufferers are faced with the prospect of having to take strong medications just to make it through the day, and a long waiting list to receive any kind of NHS treatment such as physiotherapy.

The problem with these types of guidelines is the potential for bias and personal and institutional influences.  Alongside the American College of Physicians, two other US agencies reviewed the evidence for Acupuncture in 2016 and came to the same conclusion: Acupuncture is a safe, effective treatment for chronic back pain.  So, this makes 3 US bodies in favour of Acupuncture, and the UK NICE against it!

But what about those who matter – the back-pain sufferers?

Well, I have been successfully helping clients with back pain for many years!

This is what one client says about his experience with my Acupuncture;

I started with lower back pain which I put with for a couple of weeks, but as it got worse I started to take painkillers. Then I even had a course of six acupuncture treatments from another local acupuncturist but it made no difference.

So, I contacted Tiziana to see if she could fit me in as I know she is so busy. Because by that time I could barely get out of bed as I was in so much pain. She managed to see me quickly, which was great because she had helped me in the past, and the doctors had not helped me at all, even made me feel worse making me feel sick with really strong painkillers. Then after only one treatment with Tiziana I felt so much better. But I had put up with it too long, and let it get too bad. So, I needed to have another treatment.

Now I feel so much better, and I am back at work and best of all I am without pain!

Clients regularly report experiencing pain relief, improved flexibility and no need for any strong painkilling medications.

And as a Professional Member of ‘Backcare’ the national back care charity and a registered Appropriate Provider of Care under the NHS AQP (Any Qualified Provider) scheme you can rest assured of the quality and effectiveness of my Acupuncture for your back pain.

Acupuncture Awareness Week | York Traditional AcupunctureThe annual Acupuncture Awareness Week celebrations will soon be here: this year it runs from 6th – 12th March, and aims to increase people’s awareness of just how many conditions Acupuncture can support.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture is often only thought of for treating pain, but it is in fact a complete medical system that can help with almost any health condition you might have!

The spread of Acupuncture

TCM Acupuncture is a traditional healing method originating from China over 2500 years ago.  Unlike many traditional healing techniques which remain localised to a specific culture, the power and popularity of acupuncture has spread rapidly across the world, with acupuncture practitioners now working in hundreds of countries.  Here in the UK 2.3 million people enjoy acupuncture treatments every year!

Pain Relief

One of the most popular reasons for clients coming to my clinic is pain relief.  TCM Acupuncture has been show to effectively relieve pain of all kinds;

  • Arthritis
  • Migraines
  • Sports injuries
  • Chronic back pain: I see many clients with back problems and am registered as a practitioner with BackCare the national back and neck pain charity.
  • Labour pain
  • Even surgical pain! In fact, no deaths have ever been reported from acupuncture analgesia, unlike prescription and over-the-counter pain relief medications.  In China acupuncture is often used in surgery to reduce the need for anaesthesia drugs – and may even replace the need for anaesthesia altogether in certain circumstances.

World Health Organisation Endorsement

In 2002 the WHO published a detailed report evaluating the evidence and research supporting TCM Acupuncture as an effective healthcare option for a vast range of conditions.

Acupuncture has so much to offer for health and wellbeing!  This is a taster of the many health conditions TCM Acupuncture can be used for;

  • Insomnia: ear acupuncture and acupressure has a hypnotic effect and can help improve sleep patterns
  • Allergies: acupuncture has been shown to be more effective than anti-histamine drugs for relieving allergic rhinitis
  • Bronchial asthma
  • Morning sickness
  • Nausea: both unexplained nausea and nausea related to chemotherapy treatment
  • Blood pressure regulation: both high and low blood pressure can be managed with acupuncture
  • Stress
  • Anxiety: Anxiety UK, the national charity for supporting anxiety sufferers recommends me as an approved practitioner
  • Depression
  • Digestive health: Irritable Bowel Syndrome, indigestion, bloating – find relief with acupuncture!
  • Skin conditions: itchy, painful inflamed skin conditions can be alleviated with TCM Acupuncture
  • Weight loss
  • Quitting smoking and other addictions: auricular acupuncture is particularly beneficial for quitting smoking. I am a Gold Award Therapist with the National Stop Smoking Centre!

As you can see, TCM Acupuncture works on the body rebalancing all its systems and restoring health and vitality.

EndometriosisEndometriosis is a painful, life-limiting condition affecting around 1.5million women in the UK.  It is caused when endometrial tissue (the tissue that lines the womb) grows outside of the womb.  It can grow on the ovaries, fallopian tube, bladder bowel – even the lungs, brain and eyes can be affected.

Because these growths are made of womb tissue, they respond to hormonal fluctuations throughout the menstrual cycle and can even bleed during menstruation.

Endometriosis can develop with very few symptoms and some women are unaware that they have it.

 

Signs and symptoms of endometriosis include:

  • Painful periods (dysmenorrhoea)
  • Pain during sex
  • Pain when passing urine or a bowel movement
  • Back pain
  • Pain radiating down legs
  • Heavy periods and bleeding between periods
  • Bleeding via bowel, bladder, lungs, eyes
  • Bloating
  • Constipation / diarrhoea – IBS type symptoms
  • Fatigue
  • Depression

What causes Endometriosis?

The exact cause often remains unclear but contributing factors include;

  • Imbalanced hormone levels with high levels of oestrogen
  • ‘Retrograde menstruation’ where menstrual blood flows back up into the womb
  • Elevated levels of inflammatory chemicals in the body
  • Exposure to environmental pollutants such as hormone disrupting chemicals found in plastics and pesticides
  • Genetic predisposition

How can Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture help with Endometriosis?

I have successfully worked with a wide range of female hormonal complaints, including endometriosis.  TCM Acupuncture is an ideal modality for managing the condition as it takes an holistic approach, focusing on the efficient flow of Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) throughout the body, particularly in relation to the reproductive and detoxification organs.

I look at a woman’s hormone balance, stress levels, detoxification pathways and levels of pain and inflammation – all these aspects play a part in the development of endometriosis.

For example, if a lady is particularly stressed and not eating properly, she is likely to have higher levels of inflammation and not be detoxifying hormones as effectively as she could.  Therefore, managing her stress levels and liver energy is an important part of the treatment.

TCM Acupuncture has been proven to support relief from endometriosis by:

Fibromyalgia natural treatmentAre you suffering from the severe fatigue and muscle pains of Fibromyalgia?

This condition affects around 1 in 25 people in the UK and is something I see frequently in my Clinic. Fibromyalgia affects many more women than men – the reasons for this remain unknown – and can be associated with other life-limiting conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, headaches, depression and Restless Leg Syndrome.

The name Fibromyalgia literally translates as pain (algia) coming from muscles (my) and connective tissues (fibro). The exact cause of it varies from person to person but is often associated with stress, infections and changes in the balance of chemicals in the brain that regulate pain sensitivity.

Can medication help with fibromyalgia?

Unfortunately most medications prescribed for fibromyalgia do little to relieve the condition. Long term use of Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) like Ibuprofen and Naproxen can lead to digestive problems as the lining of the stomach gets damaged and inflamed: stronger painkillers are not recommended because of the risk of addiction.

Anti-depressants are sometimes used to relieve any depression and anxiety caused by the condition, and can also ease sleeping problems.

How can Acupuncture help?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture is proven to bring lasting relief to fibromyalgia patients. A recent study in Spain compared acupuncture with a placebo treatment. The group of 164 patients were assigned to either an acupuncture group or a placebo group (in this study, the placebo was sham-acupuncture) and all participants received their selected therapy for 10 weeks.

At the end of the trial, those receiving TCM acupuncture reported significant decreases in pain and improvements in fatigue, anxiety and depression, compared to the placebo group.

These improvements were shown to be sustained at a 12 month follow up too.

TCM Acupuncture brings relief from fibromyalgia by;

  • Stimulating nerves in muscles and tissues to release endorphins, the bodys own ‘feel good’ chemicals
  • Altering the balance of brain chemicals in favour of pain relief and mood elevation
  • Improving microcirculation in muscles and connective tissues
  • Reducing muscular inflammation

Will exercise and nutrition help too?

Gentle exercise can improve fibromyalgia symptoms – the trick is to exercise enough to feel the benefit but not to overwork the muscles! Yoga, swimming and outdoor walking are good forms of exercise to begin with.

Nutrition has much to offer for fibromyalgia. Dark green leafy vegetables, buckwheat and cashew nuts are all excellent sources of magnesium, a key mineral for muscle health and pain management. Oily fish, nuts and seeds provide healthy essential fats that can help reduce pain and inflammation.

Drinking plenty of water (at least 1.5l per day) is vital – dehydrated muscles will be painful muscles!

Epsom salt baths

Many fibromyalgia sufferers find warm baths soothing to their symptoms. Adding 1-2 cups of Epsom salts to a bath can make a huge difference: the salts are rich in magnesium which eases cramps and muscle pains and calms the nervous system.
