Massage Aids in Postoperative Treatment

Massage Aids in Postoperative Treatment

Many medical professionals are increasingly opting for natural methods of treatment for their postoperative patients. There are often many complications for patients after a significant operation; these complications can delay recovery time, increase pain, and even lengthen hospital stays. Studies indicate that massage therapy can decrease postoperative pain and distress—and often even increase recovery time for patients. This is welcome news, especially for those who are looking for alternatives to heavy pain medications which often produce negative side effects.
In addition, research shows that massage therapy can even improve patient-caregiver relations, enhancing the feelings of well-being and sense of connection. Doctors say these feelings are critical for optimal recovery—specifically after an operation. When pharmacological interventions are either unwanted or ineffective, massage therapy can step in to fill the gaps of care.
