Arthritis (Joint pain & Tendonitis/Bursitis)

Most people do not know that Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help with Arthritis. Arthritis, this word simply means inflammation of joint(area). Once it is diagnosed, some people are reluctant to do anything about it except taking drugs which may cause such serious side effects as gastric ulcer, duodenal ulcer, gastrointestinal bleeding, tinnitus, blurred vision, dizziness and headache. While ago, we saw many people ended up taking Cox-2 inhibitors with good result of controlling the pain, however, they are pulled out of the market due to significantly higher risk of cardiovascular events, such as heart attack and stroke.

Having said that, our medicine offers significantly fewer side effects. For optimal treatments, we can apply integrative use of herbs, acupuncture and Tuina therapies. Our approach targets both the symptoms and the causes of pain. Often we achieves immediate and long term success. Difference is that, due to the nature of this medicine, we carefully evaluate the type of your body disharmony and influenced acupuncture meridian. Then we start correcting any imbalances we found in each case.
