In other words, I'm not talking about arthritis that's often diagnosed as Rheumatoid arthritis.
Moxibustion is an ancient Chinese medicine technique involving warming the joint with an herbal "cigar" made of mugwort. Moxibustion stimulates circulation of blood to improve healing, and is very effective in chronic conditions where other treatments fail.
This herb works better than other heat sources. Studies have shown that even the smoke from the herb has oils that make the treatment more effective. Holding the "cigar" below the area to fumigate the joint with the smoke is beneficial.
You hold the "cigar" 1 or 2 inches from the skin and move it around the finger joints to warm them for 5 to 10 minutes. If the skin turns a very light pink, that's enough. I recommend my patients do it themselves at home daily. The majority of them have very good results.
Some of my patients have avoided surgery through the use of moxibustion. Others have returned to sports, playing music, and other activities they couldn't perform previously due to finger arthritis.
You can purchase moxibustion sticks at many Chinese markets and from many online acupuncture supply sites.
