Acupuncture is effective before and after surgery


Before Surgery:

Acupuncture before surgery reduces opioids used for pain management.

In a recent study, acupuncture reduced opioid use after surgery by almost two-thirds!

Acupuncture can also calm anxiety before a procedure.

Plan: Two treatments in the 10 days before surgery.

After Surgery:

Acupuncture can help alleviate adverse side effects from anesthesia such as

nausea and dizziness.

Plus, acupuncture after surgery increases circulation and reduces inflammation to help you heal faster!

Plan: Once or twice weekly as soon as you are able to come to the clinic after surgery.
