Acupuncture for Interstitial Cystitis


Acupuncture treatment of Interstitial Cystitis has shown to be more effective than Western medicine.
Interstitial Cystitis (IC) is a condition that results in recurring discomfort or pain in the bladder and the surrounding pelvic region. People may experience mild discomfort, pressure, tenderness, or intense pain in the bladder and pelvic area, and an urgent and frequent need to urinate. Pain may change in intensity as the bladder fills with urine or as it empties.

How does acupuncture work for Interstitial Cystitis?

Acupuncture increases blood flow to the bladder, strengthen pelvic muscles that aid in control, and trigger the release of pain-blocking hormones. It can help control the frequency, urgency, and pain associated with IC. Acupuncture stimulates nerve system to strengthen the bladder muscle and improve bladder function. Besides treating the underlying cause of this disorder, acupuncture can also reduce the nervousness and emotional stress brought upon the patients by this disorder. Herbal therapy may be used in combination to better treat the bladder dysfunction.

Course of treatment

There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
