Arthritis pain relief

Serving the greater Orange County Area including Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Costa Mesa, Irvine, Huntington Beach, CA.

Arthritis is a complex condition that affects over 58 million adults across the United States. Marked by joint inflammation, stiffness, and chronic pain, arthritis poses daily obstacles for those diagnosed. Simple activities like getting dressed, running errands, or playing with grandchildren can become excruciatingly difficult. The symptoms also frequently lead to fatigue, low mood, and social isolation.

At Newport Wellness Group, we understand how demoralizing it can be to have your life narrowed by arthritis. The loss of independence and inability to participate in meaningful activities chips away at one’s sense of self. That’s why we have dedicated our practice to helping Southern California residents reclaim control over their lives. Through customized acupuncture treatments, we aim to reduce arthritis suffering so you can get back to living life to the fullest.

Common Arthritis Pain Relief FAQs

What is your acupuncture treatment plans?

Our certified acupuncturists, Dr. Shohre Mehvar, OMD, LAc and Dr. Shabnam Pourhassani, DACM, LAc, QME, FABORM, have extensive training in both Eastern and Western medical traditions. This gives them the expertise to develop personalized acupuncture treatment plans that target each patient’s unique arthritis profile.

We do not take a one-size-fits-all approach. Your treatment plan will depend on the type of arthritis you have, the location and severity of your symptoms, your medical history, and your lifestyle factors. This comprehensive view allows us to deliver better patient outcomes.

During your initial consultation at our convenient Newport Beach office, your acupuncturist will conduct a thorough health evaluation. They will assess your range of motion, inquire about your pain levels and flare-up triggers, and discuss your treatment goals. Based on the information gathered, your acupuncturist will design a customized acupuncture regimen to address your needs.

How does acupuncture help with arthritis?

While symptoms can vary drastically from patient to patient, arthritis commonly causes:

– Joint pain and inflammation
– Limited mobility and flexibility
– Muscle weakness around joints
– Chronic fatigue
– Susceptibility to injury or falls

Fortunately, modern research shows acupuncture can help mediate many of these issues. Fine sterile needles are inserted into specific points on the body to stimulate natural healing responses. For arthritis, these points often surround painfully inflamed joints and along energy meridians connected to immune function.

Though clinical trials are still unfolding, analysis suggests acupuncture may alleviate arthritis by:

Reducing Inflammation: Acupuncture points linked to immune activity may help regulate inflammatory biomarkers. This calms joint irritation.

Relieving Muscle Tension: Insertion into trigger points releases tight muscles, enhancing flexibility.

Increasing Circulation: Widened blood vessels decrease stiffness by bathing joints in fresh oxygen and nutrients.

Boosting Endorphins: Elevated endorphins mute pain signals to the brain to provide lasting relief.

Strengthening Connective Tissue: Improved collagen production fortifies tendons and ligaments around arthritic joints.

Realigning Biomechanics: Gentle stretching and massage during sessions corrects joint misalignments that contribute to arthritis progression.

With repeated treatments, these compounding benefits add up to better mobility, less pain, and improved stamina. Patients report being able to complete more daily activities with greater comfort and confidence.

What are the results I should expect?

While acupuncture can be an effective standalone therapy, we often integrate it with other treatments to provide comprehensive arthritis care. Lifestyle changes like losing excess weight, strengthening muscles, and managing stress are key to long-term arthritis management.

Acupuncture synergizes beautifully with programs like:

– Physical therapy – Acupuncture preps the body to get more out of stretching and joint stabilization exercises.

– Anti-inflammatory diets – Nutritional optimization further reduces painful swelling.

– Mindfulness training – Relaxation techniques enhance acupuncture’s natural stress reduction.

By interweaving treatments, we grant patients the tools to take control of their arthritis outside the acupuncture room. Our ultimate goal is empowering clients to independently manage symptoms.
