Optimizing Post-Operative Care with Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture in Beaverton, Oregon
Redefining Post-Operative Care with Traditional Asian Medicine
Surgery, while often necessary, can leave the body feeling depleted and imbalanced. Traditional Asian medicine (TAM) offers a unique approach to post-operative care, focusing on restoring harmony within the body and promoting natural healing.
Dr. Kihyon Sohn, a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist in Beaverton, Oregon, draws upon centuries-old TAM wisdom to craft personalized treatment plans for individuals recovering from surgery. Unlike traditional Chinese medicine, TAM encompasses a broader range of Asian medical traditions, including Korean, Japanese, and Vietnamese practices. It allows Dr. Sohn to select the most effective techniques for each patient’s needs and cultural background.
Acupuncture for Pain Management and Tissue Repair
Acupuncture, a cornerstone of TAM, involves the insertion of fine needles at specific points on the body. These points are gateways to the body’s energy pathways or meridians. By stimulating these points, Dr. Sohn can:
- Reduce pain and inflammation
- Enhance circulation
- Promote tissue repair
- Improve sleep quality
- Alleviate anxiety and stress
“After my knee surgery, the pain was keeping me up at night,” shared Sarah W., a patient of Dr. Sohn. “Acupuncture treatments not only eased the pain but also helped me sleep better, which made a huge difference in my recovery.”
Herbal Medicine for Internal Balance and Immune Support
Herbal medicine plays a vital role in TAM’s holistic approach. Dr. Sohn utilizes potent herbal formulas tailored to address specific post-operative concerns, such as:
“Dr. Sohn prescribed me a herbal tea blend after my surgery,” said Michael L. “It helped settle my stomach and gave me a much-needed energy boost. I felt like I was healing from the inside out.”
A Collaborative Approach to Optimal Healing
Dr. Sohn emphasizes the importance of collaboration with patients and their medical teams. He works closely with other healthcare providers to ensure that his TAM treatments complement, not interfere with, conventional medical care.
“I believe that traditional Asian medicine can be a valuable tool in supporting the healing process after surgery,” says Dr. Sohn. “By working together, we can help patients achieve a more comfortable and complete recovery.”
