Those living with everyday pain-related conditions like osteoarthritis and knee injury often feel that they have two options: live with the pain and the corresponding decline in their quality of life or undergo invasive surgery that will cost thousands of dollars and weeks of recovery time. Alternative therapies like acupuncture can offer a third option and save patients from the lose-lose choice between painful and costly surgery and becoming a casualty of pain. According to significant research, including a 2012 article in the British Medical Journal, Acupuncture can relieve the pain of knee osteoarthritis and offer a low-cost alternative to surgery for the condition.
Holistic therapeutic techniques like acupuncture and massage are often lesser-explored options in patients’ ongoing quest to manage their pain-related conditions and maintain their current level of physical activity. For the thousands of New Yorkers and residents of the tri-state area that struggle with pain on a daily basis, quality, proven and effective acupuncture in NYC is available and can be a viable form of relief. If you have been told that your only course of action for your knee pain is either a knee-replacement or misery, talk to your doctor about acupuncture to see if it is right for you.
