Acupuncture and Restless Leg Syndrome



The Mayo Clinic defines restless leg syndrome as a condition that causes an uncontrollable urge to move your legs, usually because of an uncomfortable sensation.


It typically happens in the evening or nighttime hours when you're sitting or lying down. Moving eases, the unpleasant feeling temporarily.


For anyone who has suffered from restless legs knows how uncomfortable it can be and it can make it hard to fall asleep or stay asleep.


Often, there's no known cause for RLS. Researchers suspect the condition may be caused by an imbalance of the brain chemical dopamine, which sends messages to control muscle movement.


Acupuncture can help with balancing the body and give you relief, for more information you can read this article by HealthCMi:
