Have you recently had an operation and are experiencing pain? You may, for example, have been discharged from the hospital with a treatment plan that includes exercise and physiotherapy to help you recover.
You may also have been offered pain relief. However, you may find some relief from postoperative pain by having acupuncture.
Sometimes referred to as FMS (fibromyalgia syndrome), it is a long-term and complex condition that can cause sufferers much pain and distress.
At this Chinese medicine clinic in London, we see fibromyalgia patients who experience symptoms including poor sleep, anxiety, pain, headaches, stiff muscles and tiredness. There is some evidence to suggest that 66% to 99% of fibromyalgia patients are encouraged to try acupuncture to relieve their distress and discomfort, exceptionally when pharmaceutical treatments do not provide sufficient relief.
