Looking for alternative options for post-surgery pain relief?
Surgery is painful no matter where it’s performed on your body. Recovery can be a nightmare especially if the pain is unbearable. While many Western doctors are quick to prescribe addictive pain medications, acupuncture after surgery can help you with post-op pain relief.
Reducing your pain from surgery can start before your procedure, too.
Clinical studies have shown that treatments before and after your surgery significantly reduced pain and the use of painkillers.
Cut your healing time in half.
Healing from surgery can be a long process. Utilizing acupuncture in your recovery can help cut your recovery time in half with most people accelerating healing times by 50-70%.
There are many benefits of using acupuncture after surgery, all of which aid in helping you heal faster and ultimately feel better. Acupuncture is well documented to:
- Inhibit inflammation
- Promote microcirculation
- Alter the perception of pain by inhibiting pain signals
- Encourage endorphin release
- Decrease post-surgery stress
- Boost your immune system
- Minimize drug side-effects
- Reduce internal and external scarring
