I must share the standard disclaimer that I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice. Crystals for healing should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care.
When a crystal has been cleared, both energetically and physically, most people will program a crystal. Programing is a subjective act, it is not necessary, but programming will give the crystal clear instructions on what you would like the crystal to direct its energy toward. If there is an issue you wish to program your crystal for then by all means program the crystals.
