Keep us in the Know
Make sure to tell us if you are about to have surgery. Acupuncture is safe before and after surgery. However, some acupuncture points can have a similar effect to the blood-thinning medications you’re told to avoid before surgery.
Besides, it’s always a good idea to inform us about any upcoming or recent major health events. Events such as surgeries can affect us on multiple levels, physical and emotional. As a holistic medicine, acupuncture addresses all of these factors, so your acupuncturist will be very interested in knowing if you’re about to undergo surgery or if you recently had a procedure.
Acupuncture can be effectively used preoperatively to reduce immediate postoperative pain, nausea and vomiting and reduce need of opioids and avoid side effects of drugs. It may also be used to alleviate pain, substantially after 8 to 12 hours of surgery. For treatment of pain of surgery in Nashik, please let Dr Pardeshi Acupuncture Pain Therapy know before surgery so that we can make it less stressful.
Chronic Non-healing Wound
A chronic wound is a non healing wound that does not heal in predictable time and order say within three months. It may not heal or may take years. Such wounds load emotional stress and physical burden to patients.
Cause of chronic wound may be diabetes, pressure sores, poor circulation, neuropathy, and difficulty moving, factors that include systemic illnesses, age, and repeated trauma,
Co-morbid factors that can lead to ischemia are especially likely to contribute to chronic wounds. Such factors include chronic fibrosis, enema, sickle cell disease, and peripheral artery disease such as by atherosclerosis. Chronic wound may also be a malignancy; for example, cancerous tissue can grow until blood cannot reach the cells and the tissue becomes an ulcer. Another factor that may contribute to chronic wounds is old age.
Treatment is directed to cause of chronic wound. Dr Pardeshi Acupuncture treatment of chronic ulcer in Nashik can speed up healing.
Scar Pain Treatment
Scars are a response to an injury to repair and heal by the body. It is process of filling gap in injured tissue. In normal situation mass of scar tissue would be just sufficient to fill up the gap without bulk or pain. However sometimes body does not stop forming collagen and continue to do job of repair adding bulk of scar forming tissue or sometime keloid and giving pain.
Scar maybe due to surgical procedure, mechanical injury like in accident, burn due to heat or chemicals. It may also be due to constant micro-tearing over time such as what may occur with an individual who is constantly exercising without much rest in between workouts or “forgets” to stretch after a workout. Scars may look very small or big which can be an illusion. Scars can actually be quite thick under the skin, wide, long and may be mobile or very immobile. Scar may present as chronic pain in and around the area or potentially away from the area. Therefore treatment of Scar may become difficult at times
Patients may feel chronic tight feeling while stretching. The common area where the individual may feel tightness is in the hamstring (back of the thigh) regardless of how much they stretch that muscle. This individual may have full range of motion or even above average range of motion and still feel the muscle is tight. Tight, thick scars can cause a patient to “shift” the way they walk, stand or sit. This postural issue can lead to headaches, neck, shoulder and lower back pain.
A scar swelling if tight enough can press down or “stick on” structures such as nerves and blood vessels, causing pain. Scars can also cause fluid to pool in an area. It may prevent the movement of fluid out of an anatomical area. We, at Dr Pardeshi Acupuncture Pain Therapy advise treatment of scar at Nashik in initial stage to avoid its progress.
AFPA reports –
“Soft tissue disease
In a 1989 study, 360 observations were made on 120 cases of soft tissue injury divided into groups. The researchers concluded that acupuncture treatment on soft tissue disease based on TCM syndrome differentiation theory is thus shown to be effective (Yuan et al., 1989).”
