Post-Surgery Recovery

Post-Surgery Recovery

  • Pain Management
  • Scarring
  • Boosts Immune System
  • Stress and Anxiety
  • Side Effects of Anesthesia

Surgery is traumatic for the body, regardless of planned or unplanned, optional or non-optional.

Acupuncture relieves symptoms from the trauma and helps speed patients toward recovery

Pain Management is the number one focus post-surgery. Unfortunately, the most commonly used treatment in hospitals is Opioid. Over time, opioid usage can lead to increased tolerance, which can force patients to continuously increase the dosage, trigger addition, and require additional pharmaceutical medication to combat the side-effects of the opioids.

Additional concerns after surgery include stiffness from immobility, reduced immune defense, abnormal sleeping patterns, and nausea from the anesthesia.

Acupuncture effectively addresses the pain, nausea, stress, and anxiety that often follows surgery. It also boosts the immune system while reducing inflammation – which is the source of most pain and discomfort.

Clinical trials show acupuncture reduces the need for opioids, with little to no side-effects. Many doctors are embracing the benefits of acupuncture and recommending it as part of the patient’s post-surgical plan.


What Our Patients Say

“I went to Oleg for back pain and stress/anxiety relief. I was skeptical of Acupuncture first but now i am a true believer. Oleg is very patient, knowledgeable and professional. I have tried many different therapies, excercices, without success. After several sessions I felt much better, my pain went down to a minimum and i felt energetic and healthy again. What i also liked is that Oleg has a background in massage therapy, so I was able to get best of both worlds during our therapy sessions. I have recommended Nature Med Acupuncture to all my family and friends.

Zhanna Kushniarova

“Oleg is amazing. I have had three sessions with him and the pain in my leg has subsided greatly. At my first visit Oleg was very thorough in his explanation of the acupuncture process and what I could expect. After the first session I had immediate improvement with the pain. The treatments have also helped tremendously with my anxiety. I am continuing acupuncture treatments not only for pain but also for the overall benefits. I highly recommend Oleg.
