Reflexology Research of Post Operative Pain Reduction

Method: Sixty patients of general surgery were randomly assigned to a control group or a reflexology group. All were given the "required quantity of standard drugs such as NSAID (Diclofenac and Opioids (Pethidine and Fentanyl)."

Fifteen to twenty minutes of foot reflexology work was applied to the treatment group.

Results: "This study show a decrease of the quantity of pain killers in Group I (foot reflexology) to less than 50% in comparison with Group II (control)."
