TREATING SPORTS INJURIES WITH ACUPUNCTURE
Many injured athletes chose to use acupuncture for relief. Whether it is the weekend warrior, the cross fit athlete or professional athlete, there is one thing in common when it comes to utilizing acupuncture as part of their training, and that is quicker recovery and prevention of injuries.
- Acupuncture is one of the quickest ways to restore muscle balance. When acupuncture is used at specific sites, the muscle spindles are reset, and then that balance is reawakened.
- Acupuncture has seen a tremendous acceptance in the United States over the past 20 years. Many of the world’s leading athletes consider it the go-to medicine to repair current injuries, for quicker recovery as well as prevention of future injuries.
- Acupuncture is a highly effective, time-tested treatment for sports injuries because it resolves pain, accelerates healing and increases range of motion. Acupuncture achieves this by decreasing inflammation, swelling and bruising; relaxing muscles and relieving spasms; lowering the body’s pain response and improving circulation.
- A 2008 study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicinediscovered that participants who received acupuncture for muscle soreness 24 and 48 hours after they exercised to exhaustion reported significantly less pain than those who did not receive the treatment.
- In addition, acupuncture can naturally boost athlete’s energy levels, aid in post-workout recovery, and improve overall performance levels. Athletes who incorporate acupuncture as part of their regular training regimens notice better results and fewer injuries.
- Acupuncture has also been shown to increase the flow of Adenosine to injured tissues where its natural stimulant effects increase the rate of tissue repair and aid in healing.

- The reason the medicine works so well is that the underlying cause of the injury or ailment is corrected. The health of the organs are improved and as a result the communication between the organs and the nervous system can strengthen and then healing can occur much more quickly. In addition, the circulation of the body’s anti-inflammatories and hormones move about seeking areas to heal.
