The use of Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be used to increase sport performance or heal sports injuries.
By increasing the blood circulation to specific areas of the body, acupuncture helps to promote the healing process of various sports injuries. Acupuncture works locally right at the site of the injury, lessening the effect of bruising, reducing swelling and increasing range of movement throughout the body.
Many professional sports teams have acupuncturists on staff to decrease healing times and resolve stubborn ailments. It was, and still is, one of the primary means of quick healing for the martial arts.
Sports Injuries treated include:
Muscle and tendon injury
Ligament damage, including common sprains
Joint injury as well as chronic arthritis and inflammation
Acute and chronic low back and neck pain
Dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system
