Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a disease of the skeleton in which the bones lose density and deteriorate. People with this disease have brittle bones and are susceptible to injuries of the hip, spine and wrist. According to the National Institute of Health, an estimated 10 million Americans have osteoporosis and 18 million more have low bone mass.

Traditional Chinese medicine offers the most holistic solution for eradicating the source of bone diseases. Traditional medical theory states that the kidneys are in charge of the bones, dominate the growth of marrow and promote the general essence and energy believed to be responsible for health and vitality throughout the body. 

The goal of acupuncture is to prevent osteoporosis before it attacks. Specific points can stimulate the growth of bone tissues and replace the tissue loss to prevent the decrease in bone density, according to AdvancedAcupuncture.com, a website dedicated to acupuncture education. Acupuncture can also help strengthen muscles to help support body weight, causing less pressure on the bones. Acupuncture also helps patients who have been diagnosed with osteoporosis by easing pain.
