Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in the country, affecting millions of people with no cure.  OA can affect any joint and become progressively worse with time. That stiffness in the morning that gets better after moving around? That ache in the knees that tell us a storm is coming? Good old arthritis.  Acupuncture and moxibustion ease the pain, stiffness and numbness of arthritis.  I routinely treat all sorts of joints- particularly the back, knees and hands every single day in my clinic with excellent results. A very large German research study published in 2006 showed that people who receive acupuncture for their knee arthritis have an improved quality of life, reduced pain and stiffness over others who did not receive acupuncture. 

Since there is no cure for osteoarthritis, we must do our best to manage the pain and slow the progression of the disease
