Knee pain may be caused by a range of conditions including injury and arthritis. We provide acupuncture to assist with pain-relief, reduction of inflammation, and promotion of healing for many conditions causing knee pain.

Knee Injuries

After an injury, acupuncture can often speed the healing process. Injuries to the knee area can cause damage to the ligaments, cartilage, and tendons supporting the knee joints. We provide effective pain-management for many of these conditions.

Arthritis Conditions

A clinical study of 3,633 patients with osteoarthritis of the knee showed that acupuncture offered significant benefits for reduction of knee pain, and overall improvements in quality of life.1 Quality of life was significantly better among patients who had 15 sessions of acupuncture over 3 months, compared with patients who did not have acupuncture. Significant quality of life improvements were observed when patients were evaluated 6 months later.

Arthritis of the knees, ankles, and hips is relatively common. Osteoarthritis is what we often think of as inflammation from wear and tear on the joint. Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto-immune condition which can affect the joints. Other auto-immune conditions can also cause pain and swelling in the joints. Bacterial infections may cause a condition called reactive arthritis.

We provide specialized acupuncture treatments (and in some cases, nutritional counselling) which can offer effective relief for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, reactive arthritis, and other types of arthritis. Acupuncture when offered by a skilled professional can assist in the relief of pain and swelling. Our patients often report a 20-30% improvement in these symptoms within one or two sessions. While every case is different, we usually see that the relief lasts longer and the benefits increase after several sessions.

Maryland Holistics offers a range of natural health services and can provide these in a way that is fully integrated, designed, and fine-tuned for you to receive the maximum benefit. We can provide treatment for multiple health concerns at each appointment.
