Acupuncture for Fractures & Orthopaedic Conditions
How does acupuncture work to treat orthopedic conditions?
Studies show that acupuncture is an effective adjunctive therapy – even in severe fractures – by helping to control pain, reduce swelling, and heal the fracture sooner. It also speeds injury recovery and improves range of motion of the affected areas. Acupuncture increases blood circulation in the injured area, reducing and even preventing scar tissue from forming. These benefits result in significantly improving outcomes for patients with bone fractures.
In other injuries, such as sprains or tendonitis, acupuncture reduces pain, decreases inflammation and swelling, and promotes circulation which reduces recovery time from the injury.
What conditions can be treated?
- Sprains and strains
- Chronic non-healing fractures
- Other injury/surgery rehabilitation
