Injuries occurring from sports, work or auto accidents and surgical interventions are due to trauma or overuse involving the musculoskeletal system and its soft tissues. Trauma to soft tissues, including ligaments, tendons and muscles are generally the result from falls, blows, sprains/strains, collisions, compressions crushing and longer healing processes due to inflammation.
Injury recovery is both physical and psychological. The physiological impacts of injury and surgery are similar. Both are traumas which can lead to pain, inflammation, swelling, digestive disorders and emotional changes. Many surgical patients suffer from per-operative anxiety and post-operative pain, inflammation, nausea, constipation, vomiting, headache, and fatigue.
The positive outcomes of acupuncture for injury and post-operative recovery are:
• Pain management
• Decrease inflammation and swelling
• Reduce nausea and vomiting
• Reduce anxiety
• Regulate digestion
• Shorter recovery time
