Acupuncture reduces inflammation

The signs of inflammation include increasing temperature, oedema, redness, pain and loss of function. In molecular side, neuropeptides, cytokines and vasoactive mediators are suggested to be a part of the inflammation. After inflammation has been initiated, vasoactive mediators could regulate blood flow and blood distribution to affected organs and tissue. Acupuncture stimulates local blood flow and activates the defence systems and clear up all bioactive mediators, as result it reduces local inflammation.
