Often after surgery many individuals have chronic pain for years. Having chronic pain after surgery is a very large problem. You can help chronic pain after surgery with lymphatic system detox. In surgery blood and lymph vessels are cut and can take up to 14 days to heal. This can limit the lymphatic system’s ability to pick up cellular waste which can lead to inflammation and more pain. You can help chronic pain by improving lymph flow through the area of pain. This improves circulation and the detoxification of cellular waste and inflammation that may be limiting healing. There are many ways to improve lymph flow from an alkaline diet, supplements, exercise, seeing a lymphatic therapist and self-lymphatic drainage.
