Over the years I have seen many patients who need surgery and have worked with them through the pre and post-operative times. Often I encourage my patients to see their GP and onwards as I feel they may be are at a point where they need surgery, for example, struggling with joint pains and getting to a point where a joint replacement is required.
Traditional five element acupuncture can help in many ways before having surgery to calm the nerves and reduce some of the pain. When a patient has had their surgery, I advise them to have acupuncture treatment as soon as possible to aid their recovery, reduce their pain, and anxiety, giving hem confidence and support to move forward.
I have treated many different situations from joint replacements and major surgery, everyone responds differently to these situations. This is why traditional five element acupuncture is so helpful as we treat every patient as an individual giving the treatment that meets their needs.
This is an extract from the British Acupuncture Council’s Website about surgery and pain.
1. Acupuncture is well known for inhibiting the inflammatory process. Inflammation, while sometimes necessary, can be quite painful and stagnating. If fresh blood isn’t permitted to move into an inflamed area, pain is often the result.
2. Acupuncture promotes microcirculation in tiny vasculature that makes up the capillary bed. Acupuncture can stimulate your own bodies ability to reconnect the tiny blood vessels that have been compromised with your procedure.
3. Acupuncture can alter the perception of pain. Because of its ability to encourage endorphin release and disarm the nervous system, acupuncture can inhibit pain signals.
