In this cold winter, many people complain that the cold weather has made their arthritis pain , joint pain, frozen shoulder pain etc. getting worse .These pain can occur anytime throughout the year, but in the cold and wet months of the winter you may find it getting worse.
The Medical Classic of the Yellow Emperor or HUANGDI NEIJING: The bible of Chinese Medicine, which has been treated as the fundamental doctrinal source forChinese medicinefor more than two thousand years, the yellow emperor has told us thousand years ago that when the wind, cold and dampness these three evil attack our body , it will cause the pain which is called "Bi" syndrome in TCM. For example, frozen shoulder is caused by cold and high humidity.One of the headaches which is called "wind-cold" headache in TCM is also caused by wind and cold. Arthritis is also caused by wind-cold-wetness attack.
wind-cold-dampness syndrome or "Bi" syndrome
So in TCM theory, origin of the disease and pathogenesis of wind-cold-wetness type of arthralgia is the attack of wind-cold-wetness evil due to our body "qi deficiency" and the liver, or spleen, or kidney failing to transport,and becoming protracted stasis in the meridian.
And TCM Acupuncture ,cupping , chinese massage(Tuina), moxibustion or herbal therapies are all for balancing our body's "Qi" ,improve liver,spleen or kidney etc. organs' function, and clear the stasis or blockage in the meridian.
