I am 50 years old and have successfully avoided surgery on my knees for several years but have now decided to go ahead with it. Can acupuncture help my recovery at all?
Acupuncture treatments are given both before and after surgery. Normally we would provide 3 pre-surgical treatments and 3 post-surgical treatments. Acupuncture can also be used to heal and reduce the size of surgical scars (keloids). An improved response to surgical procedures is another benefit that occurs through an acupuncture treatment.
Acupuncture promotes your body's ability to function in the way it was designed - whether in terms of decreased healing time, stress reduction or assuring optimal health to prevent possible future illness.
