Hey Anshad,

Acupuncture can increase the circulation locally to help nourish the muscle and tendons of the body to great effect. There are also great herbs in Chinese medicine that nourish the tendons directly like Sang Ji Sheng and Bei Sha Shen, as well as herbs to increase circulation such as Chuan Xiong and Ru Xiang.

A proper diagnosis will lead to  the proper acupuncture and herbal protocol.

I think you should give it a go, I think you will be pleased with the results.

Be well my friend,
