Pain Relief Without Drugs
I`m planning on having some surgery later this year and am concerned about having to take a lot of drugs to control the pain after surgery. What are my options besides taking drugs?
We have acupuncture and Reiki to control pain after surgery. For more detailed information, visit the website for the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine and search using the term "post op pain".
