Heal faster with less pain.
Acupuncture is a great alternative to traditional painkillers after surgery, and it can help cut your recovery time in half. Acupuncture and alternative medicine has been used for thousands of years, so it’s no secret it’s an excellent natural option to relieve the pain that comes with surgery
Acupuncture is well known for inhibiting the inflammatory process. Postoperative rehabilitation, with the beneficial effects of acupuncture, can easily help with inflammation, reducing swelling and aiding mobility after certain surgeries. Secondly, acupuncture promotes microcirculation in tiny vasculature that makes up the capillary bed and can stimulate your own bodies ability to reconnect the tiny blood vessels that have been compromised from the surgery.
Last but no least acupuncture can alter the perception of pain, due to its ability to encourage endorphin release and disarm the nervous system, thus, acupuncture can inhibit pain signals.
Furthermore, acupuncture reduces adhesions and scar tissue formation which often occur after surgery.
