Acupuncture can help with a wide variety of athletic injuries, orthopedic, and musculoskeletal conditions.

Acupuncture Helps To Shorten Healing Time

For centuries, Acupuncture has been used for sports injuries because of it’s effectiveness in enhancing the injury healing time and promoting performance.  The majority of sports injuries are acute and potentially can become chronic conditions such as strains, sprains that involve injury to the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints.  Acupuncture help can with reducing pain, swelling, inflammation, along with restoring range of motion by increasing local blood flow to the injured area (muscles, tendons, and ligaments).

Using needling on specific Acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain.  These chemicals can trigger the release of various chemicals and hormones which influence the body’s own internal regulating system which will change the experience of pain the patient is experiencing.  Acupuncture brings improved energy and biochemical balance resulting in stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities, and in promoting physical and emotional well-being.
