Post-Operative Recovery

Acupuncture can improve recovery time after surgical procedures, and reduce the symptoms of pain, bleeding, numbness and swelling.

Patients who receive acupuncture postoperatively have report having more energy and experience fewer complications associated with wound healing, infection and long-term pain, thus having more satisfaction from their surgery and reducing the need to rely on pain medication for longer than necessary. Acupuncture also helps to alleviate digestive issues that might occur after surgery, such as nausea and constipation.

Because surgery can sometimes be a very traumatic experience, receiving acupuncture post-operatively can help you to feel more emotionally balanced and relaxed, which enables you to cope more easily after your surgical procedure.
