Acupuncture Relief Following Neck Surgery

Home » Chinese Medicine News and Research » Acupuncture Relief Following Neck Surgery

Several months ago, I wrote a post about how acupuncture and massage can help with post-surgical pain relief. Recently, another study came out supporting that finding.

The study, done by researchers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, involved 70 participants. All were patients who had received surgery for head or neck cancer. Compared with the control group, patients who received acupuncture after surgery had less pain, better mobility, and fewer problems with dry mouth (a common side-effect of radiation therapy for these cancers).

This research points to several interesting uses of Chinese medicine: post-surgical pain relief, cancer support, and dry mouth. Often, people are not aware of the broad range of conditions that acupuncture can treat. Many times I have heard patients say, “I didn’t know acupuncture could treat that!”

So, if you are unsure if Chinese medicine can help your condition, feel free to ask! You can contact us with this link.
