Surgery & Injury Recovery

Surgery & Injury Recovery With Acupuncture:

Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are super effective in speeding recovery. Many sports teams including SF 49ers, NY Knicks and Olympic athletes now enlist Acupuncturists to decrease recovery time from injuries and surgery. Acupuncture decreases inflammation and increases circulation. There are many natural Chinese herbs with no side effects that do the same plus they generate tissue, flesh and bind blood vessels greatly speeding recovery.

Pain Reduction:  There is an interesting study from Duke University Medical Center that shows Acupuncture “Significantly reduces the amount of opioids needed for patients.”  It also reduced the side effects associated with opioids.  “These side effects can negatively impact a patients recovery from surgery”.

Faster Healing: Acupuncture increases the flow of blood and qi to the injured area speeding up healing.  There are also powerful Chinese herbal formulas with herbs proven to heal tendons, bones and generate flesh.  I personally use these herbs after any injury!

What To Expect:
The treatment program for Surgery & Injury Recovery is personalized based on symptoms and the area of the body.  Usually, 1-2 treatments per week for 8 weeks are prescribed, along with an herbal formula.  This is followed by 1 treatment per week, depending on the individual’s recovery.
