Acupuncture and Restless Leg Syndrome

Have you heard about restless leg syndrome? This health condition is actually a neurological disorder and statistics reveal that at least 12 million people are suffering from this condition all over the world. Studies confirm that the onset of this disorder is higher in females than males and it seems to start in middle age. The symptoms of this condition are found to be more severe in the elderly than in younger adults. The most common symptoms that characterize restless leg syndrome or RLS are the strong urge to keep moving your legs while you are sitting or lying down and you can also feel a strange sensation in the legs like creeping, crawling or tugging. Other symptoms include involuntary leg movements or a jerking sensation. People suffering from restless leg syndrome get temporary relief when they are walking around or are moving their legs.

Many people complain that restless leg syndrome normally strikes them while they are sleeping at night but this condition can also happen during the day. Several factors can cause RLS which can be either due to genetic reasons or it may also be caused during pregnancy, menopause or any other kind of hormonal changes occurring in the body. Sufferer’s of restless leg syndrome usually show to be lacking in iron in their body’s and a connection has been found between RLS and kidney failure. Stress can lead to restless leg syndrome and can also cause its symptoms as well. The intensity of the symptoms and the duration of restless leg syndrome vary from person to person yet, people generally get relief when they start moving the legs again.

Acupuncture is a treatment form that originated in China thousands of years ago and it has been in practice ever since. The basic principle of acupuncture is to help relax the body and it will also help to release the stagnant Qi (energy) in the body, thereby producing a calming effect. TCM theory believes that restless leg syndrome occurs due to Qi stagnation in the lower legs. Thus, through acupuncture, fine sterilized needles are used to release the stagnant Qi from the channels in the lower legs. The symptoms of RLS gradually reduce once the Qi stagnation in the lower legs is rectified.

A hundred percent cure rate for restless leg syndrome does not exist, however, there are several cases where acupuncture has provided amazing results for this nervous disorder. People who are suffering from this condition should try to enhance the general health of their body and try to eliminate stress as much as possible. Managing your stress is extremely important in treating this disorder. Acupuncture will certainly help you to achieve both of these aims and will also promote a calming and relaxing effect in your body. Natural treatment is the best way to treat restless leg syndrome and thus making use of the benefits available from acupuncture will certainly help to put your suffering to an end and will help relieve you from the symptoms caused by restless leg syndrome.
