Acupuncture Produces Anti-inflammatory Effects

by Thomas E. Turpen, MS, R.Ac. on 06/06/16

Anti-inflammatory biochemical responses are stimulated by the application of acupuncture. As a result, the body decreases swelling associated with arthritis. In addition, acupuncture prevents postoperative intra-abdominal adhesions. The research is confirmed across several studies including laboratory investigations.
