INJURY | SURGERY | HEALING
Acupuncture is becoming more prevalent in Western healthcare settings due to its ability to aid in healing musculoskeletal injuries and post-surgical traumas, reducing pain, and reducing stress associated with the injury or hospital stay.
Studies showing the benefits of acupuncture post-injury or post-surgery show that acupuncture reduces pain, improves mobility and function, reduces swelling, reduces the development of scar tissue and adhesions and restores circulation.
Reducing pain without medications allows more patients to remain comfortable during and after their hospital stay and reduces the amount of strong pain killers and opioids being prescribed.
