Acupuncture to reduce swelling

August 28, 2009

I tried some quackery on Tuesday to deal with the swelling in my foot and ankle and went to an acupuncturist.

I’m noticing a few days later a significant reduction in the swelling.
I’m at 3 weeks post op so not sure if things settle down then anyway, certainly from other posts I’ve read the swelling normally persists for a lot longer.

It’s by no means gone but I fell its at least a 25% reduction in 4 days.

Going back in the morning…6:45am appointment…these alternate health people keep healthy hours!!!!

I don’t know if swelling responds to the placebo / lay on hands effect but either way I’ll keep it up while I’m getting results.
