Rheumatoid Arthritis

Acupuncture in Seattle for Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a complex inflammatory disease that causes pain, swelling, and stiffness in the small joints of the body. It usually begins in the hands, wrists, feet and knees. RA is a progressive disease, however, and can eventually cause serious complications related to the heart, lungs and nerves, which can result in a long-term disability. At Awakenings Acupuncture, we specialize in Rheumatoid Arthritis acupuncture in Seattle.

How is Acupuncture Effective for Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Acupuncture is a safe, effective medical technique that is thousands of years old. We use hair-thin, single use, sterile, disposable needles inserted in specific points of the body to alleviate the symptoms of many medical conditions, including Rheumatoid Arthritis.

This traditional form of Chinese medicine helps with:

• Increasing joint mobility
• Increasing circulation of blood and lymph
• Reducing inflammation, swelling, stiffness and pain
• Relaxation

Additionally, acupuncture releases endorphins that reduce pain. It is an effective pain relief treatment especially for patients with a chronic condition like RA. Whether you are just starting to experience symptoms or if you have had RA for a while, consider our rheumatoid arthritis acupuncture service in Seattle.
