Traditional Chinese Medicine Can Help Relieve Numbness, Pain and Weakness

Traditional Chinese medicine can treat many conditions that involve numbness, pain and weakness in the legs. TCM looks at them as being caused by some type of imbalance, or by a blockage of qi or chi enegy. For many years, TCM was considered to be out on the fringe and not to be taken seriously. But things have been changing.

Well-known and well-established health institutions like Harvard at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, and McMaster University in Canada are now using traditional Chinese medicine for some conditions involving numbness, pain and weakness in the legs.

"Treatment always depends first on treatment of the underlying cause such as the disk problem, thyroid replacement , controlling blood sugar, controlling cholesterol, and eliminating any chemicals, foods or drugs that may be causing the irritation or damage."

After this initial treatment, it's important to be able to control the symptoms of numbness, pain and weakness. Treatment without drugs, like those of traditional Chinese medicine, can help correct any imbalance, lessen the pain experienced, and help regain strength in the legs.
