Sports Medicine Acupuncture is a synergistic blend of the ancient wisdom and methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), modern sports medicine science and assessment, and specialized treatment techniques. It is a comprehensive and intelligent approach to treating pain, sports injuries, work injuries, and postural imbalances, as well as promote enhanced athletic performance and improved range of motion.
Our acupuncturist uses motor point needling techniques to “reset” affected muscle spindle fibers. This teaches the body to maintain balance between its opposing muscle groups, maintain the muscles strength and tone, as well as open the nervous system circuit to maintain optimal functioning and range of motion. When these techniques are performed correctly by a licensed acupuncturist with this highly specialized training, results are immediate, which provides a quick return to activity and peak level of performance for you.
Sports acupuncturists may also use soft tissue release and mobilizations, postural assessment, cupping, myofacial release, PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) stretches, and exercises to correct postural imbalances to quickly get you back in the game pain free, maintaining optimal results and preventing future injuries.
Chinese Herbal Medicine can help in all aspects of athleticism where each formula is customized to the patients specific needs. A proper herbal formula can help an athlete with injury prevention, performance enhancement, and rehabilitation.
