A 62yo female patient came to see me in early November 2011 complaining of inflammation and pain in her left hand. The patient had visual arthritic changes (swelling) in the knuckle of both her thumb and forefinger, her hand was stiff and hot to the touch, and the patient was unable to make a fully closed fist. Patient was diagnosed with osteoarthritis. I treated patient with acupuncture for several weeks and recommended additional home therapy with herbal patches and oral solution to decrease inflammation and improve circulation.

The lady came in for her acupuncture session after 6 days of herbal therapy. The inflammation and swelling was gone and the patient's skin was malleable and her hand was no longer hot to the touch. The female patient had used a series of 2 herbal patches on both knuckles within the past week and drank the oral solution (1 teaspoon 3 times a day). Patient was now pain free and able to make a closed fist. She was extremely happy with the quick results she had received and has not felt the need to come in for treatment to date.
