Conditions we treat

The specialists of our scientific and research hospital at the University of Traditional Chinese Medicine offer the patients effective treatment of the following disorders:

  • achilles tendonitis;
  • shoulder tendonitis;
  • osteoarthritis;
  • sacroiliac joint dysfunction;
  • fibromyalgia and many other mixed and undifferentiated connective tissue illnesses.

Treatment Methods

In order to treat various connective tissue diseases the specialists of our hospital restore circulation of Qi energy in the patient’s body. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, these illnesses emerge from congestion and lack of energy circulation, which lead to disruption of healthy blood flow and joint trophism. Reactivation of energy circulation is realized by means of acupuncture on certain points, which restores the work of meridian channels. Besides, we use physiotherapeutic procedures and herb-based medicaments that restore trophism and promote anagenesis.

For the purpose of therapy of arthragra, as well as other joint and tendon diseases, our doctors advise to keep your limbs warm and defend the body from cold.
