Neural circuits mechanism plays key role in regulation of inflammation, immunity, and homeostasis. Neural reflex circuits regulate cytokine release to prevent potentially damaging inflammation and maintain homeostasis. The novel therapeutic and preventive approaches for inflammatory disease care hint the light on future medicine. Acupuncture is an ancient treatment method to modulate neural circuits system for inflammation control, the inflammatory reflex modulation treatment.

Personalized pain management for Osteoarthritis 


Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. Osteoarthritis causes pain, swelling, and reduced motion in your joints. Osteoarthritis can occur in any joint, but usually it affects your hands, knees, hips or spine.

Symptoms of Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis symptoms often develop slowly and worsen over time. Signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis include:

  • Pain. Affected joints might hurt during or after movement.
  • Stiffness. Joint stiffness might be most noticeable upon awakening or after being inactive.
  • Tenderness. Your joint might feel tender when you apply light pressure to or near it.
  • Loss of flexibility. You might not be able to move your joint through its full range of motion.
  • Grating sensation. You might feel a grating sensation when you use the joint, and you might hear popping or crackling.
  • Bone spurs. These extra bits of bone, which feel like hard lumps, can form around the affected joint.
  • Swelling. This might be caused by soft tissue inflammation around the joint.

What Is Spinal Stenosis?

Spinal stenosis is typically caused by one or more of the following factors:

Spinal osteoarthritis: When the smooth cartilage covering the facet joints start to break down, bones begin to rub against each other and may lead to the formation of abnormal bone growth, called osteophytes or bone spurs. The resulting inflammation and osteophyte formation can contribute to narrowing of the foramina.

Degenerative disc disease: When discs lose hydration and start to flatten, the intervertebral foramina also start to narrow. A disc bulge can also start to push into the spinal canal. Disc degeneration can also put more pressure on the facet joints and accelerate their degeneration as well.

What Is Degenerative Disc Disease?

Ligament thickening or buckling: Ligaments in the spinal canal can ossify (thicken and turn into bony tissue) and encroach upon the spinal cord or nearby spinal nerves. Some ligaments may also become more susceptible to buckling into the spinal canal as spinal degeneration progresses.

Other factors may also contribute to spinal stenosis, such as spinal deformity or cyst growths.

What Is Degenerative Disc Disease?

Degenerative disc disease is one of the most common causes of low back and neck pain, and also one of the most misunderstood.

Simply put, degenerative disc disease refers to symptoms of back or neck pain caused by wear-and-tear on a spinal disc. In some cases, degenerative disc disease also causes weakness, numbness, and hot, shooting pains in the arms or legs (radicular pain). Degenerative disc disease typically consists of a low-level chronic pain with intermittent episodes of more severe pain.

Degenerative Diseases

What is Degenerative Disease?

Degenerative disease is the result of a continuous process based on degenerative cell changes, affecting tissues or organs, which will increasingly deteriorate over time. A disease in which the function or structure of the affected tissues or organs changes for the worse over time. Osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer disease are examples.

In neurodegenerative diseases, cells of the central nervous system stop working or die via neurodegeneration. An example of this is Alzheimer's disease. The other two common groups of degenerative diseases are those that affect circulatory system for example coronary artery disease and neoplastic diseases such as cancers

Many degenerative diseases exist and some are related to aging. Normal bodily wear or lifestyle choices may worsen degenerative diseases, but this depends on the disease. Sometimes the main or partial cause behind such diseases is genetic. Then, those diseases are clearly hereditary like Huntington's disease. Sometimes the cause is viruses, poisons or other chemicals. The cause may also be unknown.

Some degenerative diseases can be cured, but not always. It might still be possible to alleviate the symptoms with acupuncture treatments, such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, Alzheimer disease, Parkinson's diseases.

Examples of Degenerative Diseases

Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease are the most common neurodegenerative diseases.

Degenerative nerve diseases include:
