I suffer from chronic arthritic pain. My quality of life has diminished and I hurt all the time. Can you help?

I suffer from chronic arthritic pain. My quality of life has diminished and I hurt all the time. Can you help?

Approximately 8 million Americans suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and 40 million from osteoarthritis. 86 million Americans have chronic pain that is not relieved by conventional medicine. One-third of all Americans are turning to alternative treatments every year. Today, many chronic pain clinics are encouraging patients to cope with pain, but without medication.

There is a growing body of clinical evidence supporting the efficacy of acupuncture for pain relief. According to Bruce Pomeranz, a neurophysiologist, acupuncture stimulates the release of the body's own natural painkillers, endorphins. This is an especially good option for people who cannot, or do not want to, take medication.

Acupuncture is being increasingly recommended by doctors at leading medical centers---and patients feel relief. It can successfully treat sciatica; headaches; sports injuries; bursitis back/disc/muscle pain; tendinitis; neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, leg and foot pain.
