Acupuncture post total knee replacement surgery




Ko, H.F. et al., (2021) collated all the research surrounding the effectiveness of acupuncture for reducing pain after a total knee replacement, and examined the results.


Acupuncture is a safe and effective approach for pain management and is widely used amongst many health professionals. Researchers concluded there were statistically significant differences in reported levels of pain after receiving acupuncture after a total knee replacement. A large benefit of acupuncture is that there are no serious adverse effects associated with the treatment, making it a safe and viable option for pain relief.
