Acute Injuries 

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) was born thousands of years ago out of a need for treatment of acute illness and injuries.

Acupuncture and other TCM modalities can support the recovery of acute injuries by:

  • Reducing swelling and inflammation

  • Increase microcirculation and blood flow

  • Alleviate pain

  • Promote tissue repair and healing

Types of acute injuries that acupuncture and TCM can help include:

  • Sprains or strains

  • Body soreness after trauma

  • Post surgical healing

  • Cuts or wounds

  • Head, facial, tooth, throat, ear pain associated with acute sickness 

The key to avoiding the development of an acute injury into becoming a chronic problem is by tending to it as soon as possible after the incident. Acupuncture should be done within hours - days of injury to avoid scar tissue adhesions, joint dysfunction, and weaknesses of the injured area.
