Acupuncture for Hip and Knee PainHip and Knee Pain
Integrative Med Solutions (IMS) works with specially prescribed formulas and treatments to embrace each individual’s hip and knee pain resolution. Using an inside-out approach, Dr. Lisanti assesses every aspect of your life and lifestyle to determine the very best natural treatment. Acupuncture is one of the first treatments of what could be a multi-pronged approach.

Acupuncture: for Hip and Knee Pain
This three-thousand year old practice has been accepted and used not only by Eastern but Western medicine as well. The virtually painless use of small, thin needles on points and meridians (energy channels) allows acupuncture to balance blood and energy flow. Working specific areas near and far from the pain center can alleviate pain associated with walking, running, climbing stairs, sports injuries and more.

By reducing inflammation and strengthening these two largest joints in the body, acupuncture is a great way to begin your healing path. Range of motion will increase after only a few sessions along with balance, stamina and rotation mobility. In addition, active trigger points in the surrounding musculature can often contribute to hip and knee pain. Acupuncture not only relieves joint challenges but can also de-activate muscular trigger points and therefore quell the nerve response causing the pain.

Clinical Nutrition:
Concentrating on reducing inflammation is an approach that may immediately decrease pain and weakness. IMS can introduce you to a simple clinical nutrition approach that consists of avoiding foods that are notorious for enhancing inflammation. Some of these foods are considered the ‘dirty dozen’ which include such pesticide ridden edibles as celery, apples, spinach, and blueberries to name a few. Foods on this list are recommended to be consumed only from organic farms to reduce adding to bodily challenges such as hip and knee pain. Other foods that can lead to inflammation and weakness are dairy, wheat, soy and nightshades such as eggplant, tomatoes and potatoes. Dr. Lisanti will give you a list of these foods allowing you to embrace The Anti-Inflammatory Diet therefore reducing systemic inflammation and decreasing or eliminating altogether your hip and knee pain.
