A recent study out of China involving 63 patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), acupuncture treatment received every other day for 3 courses of 10 treatments was found to significantly an inflammatory marker called TNF-alpha and also decreased excess fluid in the affected joints. Additional benefit was found with electrostimulation of the acupuncture points.

In addition to acupuncture, naturopathic medicine offers a wide variety of effective treatments for arthritis. Contact your naturopathic doctor to find out more.
