  • Treatment of Hip Pain with Acupuncture

    Posted on October 1, 2017 by admin - No Comments

    Hip Pain can be caused numerous types of conditions such as: hip bursitis, dislocation, fracture, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, hamstring/groin strains, and more. It is very important to see a qualified orthopedic doctor to get a correct diagnosis for hip pain, and occasionally a patient might find that acupuncture treatment can be part of the solution. Frequent acupuncture treatments can reduce the inflammation of the hip, ease pain ,and help improve healing. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the lower back and hip area are dominated by the Kidney meridian. The Kidney is the organ known to improve bone, tendons, and joint health. The Kidney is the source of red and white blood cells in the body, and controls the development and growth of our bones. TCM uses 12 primary meridians, each of which corresponds to an organ, that run throughout the body. For example, when treating Greater Trochanteric Bursitis (a cause of hip pain), an acupuncturist treats local pain by surrounding the area of the stomach meridian with needles, using a method called “surround the Dragon.” He might also supplement the Kidney meridian to enhance the result. This is due to the holistic view of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which is important in acupuncture treatments.
