We have so many patients come to us suffering from pain in the fingers and hands caused by arthritis and tendinitis. Acupuncture improves qi and blood circulation in the hands and fingers, promoting the body to heal itself and naturally reduce pain. Today’s blog post describes how acupuncture relieves finger arthritis pain.
Pain Meds Not The Solution
Western doctors prescribe pain medication for arthritis and tendinitis. This approach addresses the symptom (pain) without reaching the underlying cause. Chinese medicine and acupuncture, on the other hand, address the root issue – degeneration of the joints (arthritis) and inflammation (tendinitis). Acupuncture relieves finger arthritis pain at the source, from the inside out.
Acupuncture Provides Long Term Pain Relief
The acupuncture treatment you receive prompts your body to send blood to areas of pain, like firefighters sending water to a fire. In addition, acupuncture trains your body to send qi and blood to these areas of pain. It is like changing the course of a river, diverting water in a new direction. This enables your body to reduce the pain associated with arthritis on an ongoing basis.
Research Confirms Results
In a groundbreaking 2004 study, the National Institutes of Health concluded that acupuncture reduced pain in knee arthritis patients. An NIH press release at the time stated, “A landmark study has shown that acupuncture provides pain relief and improves function for people with osteoarthritis of the knee and serves as an effective complement to standard care.”
Since that time, dozens of additional studies have confirmed these results. In addition to knee pain, acupuncture relieves finger arthritis pain. It increases circulation of qi and blood to help the body heal itself. The treatment is natural, with no negative side effects.
What To Expect
We use sterile, single-use, hair thin needles to promote circulation in the hands and fingers. The treatments are relaxing. Many of our patients fall asleep during their session. Afterwards you will feel relaxed, and your fingers and hands will feel revitalized. Acupuncture relieves finger arthritis pain naturally.

Acupuncture Relieves Finger Arthritis Pain
We treat so much finger and hand pain at Raleigh Acupuncture. Arthritis affects the wrists and fingers starting in the 40s and 50s. Arthritis is not dangerous. It’s simply degeneration of the joints. In other words, it’s wear and tear. Acupuncture eases arthritis pain naturally.
Tendinitis Treatment Also Works
We also treat tendinitis of the arm, wrist and fingers. In this case we boost qi and blood circulation, and also drain inflammation. Acupuncture washes away the heat from inflammation, allowing the body to heal fast. While tennis and golf elbow are the most common types of tendinitis we treat, tendinitis of the thumb is also very common. If you have tendinitis in your wrist or fingers, try acupuncture.
What our Clients are Saying
My knees were so bad with arthritis that I couldn’t play golf. My wife did research on the internet and said acupuncture might help. I went in not expecting much. He told me it would take three to six treatments to see if it would work. My case was tougher because I’m overweight. Sure enough, after five treatments the pain started easing. I needed twelve treatments total, but my knees improved so much I’m playing golf again. I go in for what he calls tune-ups every month, but I don’t mind. The acupuncture keeps my knees not hurting. I’ve recommended it to my golf buddies and they’ve had success as well.
I had been getting botox injections for my face over the past five years, and it worked well. But a friend said that acupuncture could get more lasting results in a more natural way. I inquired at Raleigh Acupuncture and was surprised at how affordable it was. They explained that as an added bonus, I would receive acupuncture to help other issues at the same time that they treated my face. So I took the opportunity to deal with some arthritis in my hands and a bad knee. The facial rejuvenation was amazing. It happens over the course of 12 weeks and I literally saw wrinkles disappear! After each treatment I felt so relaxed. I’m hooked on acupuncture now, both for my face and the rest of me. The staff at Raleigh Acupuncture are very professional, friendly and skilled. I felt safe and comfortable during each visit.
All of my joints were hurting. I’ve got fibromyalgia and it effects me by making my joints hurt. The pain would move around from place to place, first the hip, the next day the shoulder, then the knee, etc. The practitioner at Raleigh Acupuncture explained that the best way to treat my kind of moving joint pain was to treat me holistically. Instead of treating the hip one day, the shoulder the next, they treated the root of the pain. They said this type of treatment would also improve my mood and my sleep. Right on all counts. I started feeling better after the second treatment. It’s like all of the joints just settled down and stopped giving me trouble. I had less flares and the intensity of the pain went way down. My sleep is better, not just because I have less pain. I’m more relaxed and less stressed. I’ve made this treatment a regular part of my life. I’m very grateful.
I had terrible pain in my hands from arthritis, especially my thumbs. I could not even open a jar anymore – there was no strength. My neighbor was seeing an acupuncturist at Raleigh Acupuncture, so I made an appointment. They were so sweet. I was apprehensive about the needles, but they told me they would use extra small ones, which I hate to admit, but I couldn’t even see without my glasses. They put needles in my hands, arms and in different places on my legs as well. I believe it made a substantial difference. My hands stopped hurting all the time and my grip strength increased. My thumbs still give me some trouble, but not nearly like before. I’d say I am 80% improved with my arthritis. Now I have all of my friends going to them!
