The Traditional Chinese Medicine’s View
Orthopedics and Acupuncture Potential Relationship:
1) After surgery, why pain and/or discomfort continue?
As acupuncture is not a biochemical, mechanical or structural medicine, it addresses the body’s energetic presentation. Acupuncture, a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), contends all pain is the result of an energetic blockage, like debris collecting in a stream’s eddy, or similar to a kinked garden hose that prevents normal water flow, acupuncture treatment, using specific selected points, will increase energy flow which aids in patient recovery.
