    Can Acupuncture Help Chronic Osteoarthritis for Stage 4 CKD Patients

    2015-10-04 05:38| Font Size A A A

    Can Acupuncture Help Chronic Osteoarthritis for Stage 4 CKD PatientsAcupuncture is an unique and traditional treatment in China which has been practiced for thousands of years. Indeed, it plays an important role in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Along with the development and application of acupuncture, it is also used for reliving pain for kidney disease patients. Well then, can acupuncture help chronic osteoarthritis for Stage 4 CKD patients?

    Theory of Acupuncture.

    According to principles of TCM, health is governed by the flow of energy (known as Qi) throughout the body along pathways called meridians. Illness occurs when this energy flow is disrupted or becomes unbalanced, the theory goes. It aims to correct imbalances of energy, or “chi,” in the body. To do that, practitioners use very fine stainless-steel needles to stimulate the body's 14 major energy-carrying channels, or meridians, which can restore the flow of essential energy and improve health.

    How does acupuncture work on chronic osteoarthritis?

    Chronic osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of joint disease. It causes joint pain and stiffness. In people with bone disease related to kidney damage, bone cells called osteoclasts and osteoblasts are often not in balance. The way these bone cells get out of balance is when calcium, parathyroid hormone (PTH), phosphorus and activated vitamin D are out of balance.

    According to the underlying cause, acupuncture works by regulating the movement of Qi, and this Qi is responsible for the circulation of blood. So by restoring the healthy circulation of Qi, there is a healthy circulation of blood. Blood is responsible for delivering oxygen and nutrients to each and every cell. Blood also carries away metabolic debris

    In addition, research also shows that the inserting an acupuncture needle induces production of cortisol, a hormone that helps to control inflammation. Acupuncture may stimulate activity of other pain-relieving chemicals in the body.

    Above all, we can see that acupuncture indeed has abundant health benefits for patients with kidney damage and bone problems. To know more available natural treatments, you can chat with our Online Doctor or leave a message below directly.
