Why Choose Sports Acupuncture?

Sports Acupuncture is used to manage pain symptoms by accelerating the healing process through increased lymph circulation, blood circulation, and improve sports performance by releasing tight muscle fascia (muscle coverings) to bolster flexibility of the joints.

Acupuncture reduces pain, increases range of motion, improves the body’s recovery time, and strengthens weakened parts of the body. It has also been proven to be very effective in treating sports injuries by decreasing inflammation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving spasms, and lowering the body’s response to pain. It also functions to improve overall blood and lymph circulation, increase the delivery of nutrients and removing noxious elements out of the body.

Currently many professional sports teams have incorporated acupuncture treatments for their players to improve their recovery times and help resolve chronic ailments.
