This is a question that many patients ask, whether acupuncture can get rid of arthritis altogether. First, let's understand what arthritis is. Arthritis is nothing more than inflammation of the joint. If it's an infectious arthritis, then probably yes, it can help you get down along with regular modern medicine. If it is inflammatory arthritis, it can also be relieved, unless there is severe damage to the joint capsule and synovial fluid and cartilage. If it's not a lot of damage, acupuncture can help. But in the case of psoriatic arthritis and in case of degenerative arthritis, and if there is any damage to a large extent, then I do not think that acupuncture can help cure arthritis. Without a doubt, it can help control your symptoms, probably be away from the symptoms for a long period of time, but you can return depending on many other conditions. If you are gaining weight, if your lifestyle is not good, all these factors should also be taken into account. But in general, what I can say is that, to a large extent, acupuncture can control the symptoms of arthritis and, in certain cases, it also helps to keep symptoms far away. If I have to say nice, then it might be hard to say that. Healing is something that once treated with acupuncture, one is completely free of the disease and never comes back and it is difficult to commit and someone who is committed to that, I do not think they are doing the right thing. Therefore, ultimately, acupuncture is of great help in controlling symptoms, but not in curing it completely.
