Acupuncture has a lot to offer to athletes, both professionals and amateurs. It is increasingly used by athletes of all levels to treat all types of injury, and many professional teams use acupuncture services troughout the year.
Treatment of sports injuries
Injuries are very common among athletes who, by pushing their bodies to the limit and placing themselves in accident-prone situations, are subject to a wide variety of muscle and joint injuries. Acupuncture, often combined with tuina massage, is very beneficial in treating this type of injury. It works by decreasing pain and inflammation, increasing local circulation to promote tissue healing, releasing muscle tension and acting on muscle trigger points.
Among the injuries we most often treat in the clinic, we find:
Epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
Rotator cuff injuries
Low back pain
Sprains and strains of the ankle
Achilles Tendonitis and bursitis
And many others ...
Why our approach can effectively help you perform better:
We use acupuncture, a recognized practice
Acupuncture is recognized by many health professionals as a therapy of choice for pain management and relief. Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of acupuncture for the treatment of pain and even the World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes it as effective in treating several types of pain.
Our approach is 100% natural
We use a natural approach to manage pain, which does not depend on drugs or invasive procedures; therefore you will have no undesirable side effects or surgical risks to manage afterwards.
We combine the best of modern medicine and Chinese medicine
By combining modern anatomical and physiological knowledge with the theory and proven practices of traditional Chinese medicine, we can achieve significant results quickly.
We accelerate body’s natural healing process
The body has the ability to regulate and heal naturally. We facilitate this work by eliminating blockages that prevent the natural healing process from taking its course. The body is then able to secrete its own anti-pain and anti-inflammatory substances; our treatment just stimulates or restarts these natural mechanisms to allow you to recover from your pain.
