Knee joint pain can be the result of several factors, including injury, disease or the gradual wearing down of the joint (osteoarthritis). It can occur in the joint itself, the tendons that cushion the joint or any of the numerous supporting muscles and tissues. The disease most commonly associated with knee and joint pain is arthritis. A type of rheumatic disease, arthritis causes stiffness and pain in the joints, and may be accompanied by inflammation, redness and swelling. Other common causes of knee pain include tendinitis (inflammation of a tendon in the joint), a torn meniscus or ligament, and sprain.
We are Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnostic patterns that are commonly involved with this western medical condition/symptom. Properly applied, Chinese Medicine (including acupuncture and herbal medicine and massage) treats patterns not individual symptoms/conditions which may better account for the range of symptoms often experienced by individuals. Pattern diagnosis/treatment is a crucial part of using Chinese Medicine for disease prevention instead of focusing on solely symptomatic treatments as is somewhat more common in western medicine. , we have combined the most effective non-surgical solutions into one treatment plan.
Because the pain disturbs their daily activities seriously, some patients chose knee replacement surgery. But unfortunately, the pains are not eliminated for some of them. So we recommend that patients can find alternative and natural treatment options including those from a Chinese Medicine perspective for knee joint pain. We have accumulated a lot of experiences for treating chronic pain at knee joint in past clinical practice. Some of patients have got rid of wheel chair, even cane. Give it a try!
