I have had constant knee pain for about 5 years. It feels unstable too. Can you help?

I have had constant knee pain for about 5 years. It feels unstable too. Can you help?

Yes. The knee is susceptible to injury because, as a hinge joint, it allows for flexibility, which unfortunately compromises its structural integrity. It depends on the surrounding ligaments and muscles for its strength and stability.

About 86 million Americans have chronic pain that is not relieved by conventional medicine. There is a growing body of clinical evidence supporting the efficacy of acupuncture for pain relief. According to Dr. Bruce Pomeranz, a neurophysiologist, acupuncture stimulates the release of the body's own natural painkillers, endorphins. Repeated acupuncture potentiates the endorphin system, giving better results after each sequential treatment. The sooner you come in after the initial onset, the quicker you see positive results.

Acupuncture is being increasingly recommended by doctors at leading medical centers---and patients claim relief. It can successfully treat many pain complaints, including sports injuries, back/muscle/disc pain and any afflicted joint.
