Sports Injury

Acupuncture and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) practices are very effective at treating acute injuries such as strains, sprains, swollen muscles, shin splints, neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle pain. Used by professional teams around the world Acupuncture & TCM are also very effective at building up any weaknesses in the body, accelerating recovery time and improving performance. Acupuncture has an established reputation in quickening the healing process by:

  • Reducing inflammation - by promoting release of vascular and immune-modulatory factors
  • Improving function and mobility
  • Accelerating the repair of injured body tissue
  • Relieving stress and promoting wellbeing, thereby facilitating recovery - by stimulating nerves located in muscles and other tissues, which leads to release of endorphins (natural pain killers)
  • Improving muscle stiffness, joint mobility and dispersal of swelling - by increasing local microcirculation a preventative method of treatment, creating greater flexibility, reducing the potential for aches and sprains.
