Acupuncture can be a highly effective form of treatment for elite athletes,
casual sports enthusiasts or anybody requiring fast, safe and effective
musculoskeletal pain and injury relief.
Acupuncture can provide a serious competitive edge for athletes including performance enhancement, pain reduction and injury recovery. In today’s fast-paced society, we often look for a “quick fix” in order to treat our injuries and ailments. We tend to rely on painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications to dull the aches and pains and reduce inflammation. Although this provides temporary relief, it does not necessarily address the root of the problem. Taking this route could potentially lead to further injury.
Acupuncture can help you recover more quickly by increasing the circulation of your body’s energy, (Qi, pronounced “CHEE”) and blood, and by encouraging your body to heal itself. As an athlete, you may experience sprain, strain, repetitive stress injuries, physical trauma, overexertion, overtraining, or emotional stress. These can be helped by improving the circulation of qi throughout the body. Acupuncture is a time-tested, safe, and natural medicine that provides immediate relief as well as long lasting benefits. It can help you to return to peak performance by restoring the proper and continuous qi flow.
