A recent study has shown that Acupuncture Repairs Knee Arthritis Cartilage Damage.

Updated: Mar 5, 2019


Acupuncture stimulates cartilage repair

for patients with knee osteoarthritis. Using MRIs, researchers have quantified the therapeutic effects of acupuncture. Within four weeks, acupuncture successfully improves the condition of cartilage in the anterior medial and lateral tibial regions of the knee. In addition, Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) scores document that acupuncture reduces pain and stiffness levels while simultaneously improving physical function.
