ACUPUNCTURE CAN HELP AFTER AN INJURY AT WORK
Acupuncture, along with Western medicine treatments, can help speed the healing of bones, ligaments, and tendons. This increased healing can help avoid surgery and decrease recovery time.A short answer is “yes”. Acupuncture is proven to be an effective treatment for injuries. Some of the most common work injuries, such as back injuries, neck injuries, knee pain, sprains, tendinitis, and lower back pain, to name a few, are successfully treated with acupuncture.
Some of the most common work injuries are muscle pulls, sprains, and strains. Acupuncture can help decrease pain and swelling to muscle injuries. Acupuncture helps increase the flow of blood and fluids. This increase in circulation decreases healing time and is highly effective with sprains and ligament damage.
Tendonitis is also a common work-related injury caused by repetitive movement. Tendonitis commonly occurs in the rotator cuff, wrists, and elbows. The increased blood flow from acupuncture along with massage can make a huge difference in healing the injury.
