A Growing number of athletes use acupuncture treatment
for acute and chronic injuries to help and treat and optimise
the conditioning of the injury.
Acute Injuries – Sprain and strain of the joint
and tissues surrounded are the most common form of injuries.
Sprain involves the ligaments and strain involves the muscles
and sometimes the tendons. General response to injury includes
pain, swelling, change in the colour of the skin involved,
reduced mobility of the joint. Clinical studies have demonstrated
use of acupuncture is highly recommended in reducing the
pain and inflammation. However gentle exercise and returning
to controlled activities will be advised after treatment
Chronic injuries – involving muscular skeletal system,
lower back pain and sciatica.
Osteoarthritis, especially involving the hands, knees
and lower back.
RSI (repeated syndrome injuries) an occupational
injury are hugely relieved by means of traditional acupuncture
While traditional acupuncture is focused to relieve pain
on an area of the body the perception of pain is in the
brain. Acupuncture not only helps relieve the pain in that
specific area of the body but also addresses the whole body
through the brain, retraining the body to be healthy and
improve the bodys natural healing mechanism.
