7. Try acupuncture
Acupuncture is an old Chinese medical therapy that is pain-relieving. Researchers found that it improves function and eases the pain in osteoarthritis.
The therapist inserts thin needles into specific points in your body in different places. Therapists say that it reroutes energies and restores your balance.
The ACR/AF recommended acupuncture conditionally as adjuvant therapy for arthritis. No evidence confirms its benefits, but there is an extremely low risk of harm. Find a qualified and certified therapist or practitioner to do this therapy.
