Acupuncture can Restore Function After an Injury

When the body sustains an injury, pain is an alarm that tells us the body is in imbalance. Often after an injury, medication is taken that will mask the pain. Unfortunately, pain relieving medications do not repair the damage; they merely mute the warning signal.

Acupuncture is a natural, drug-free way to eliminate pain and enhance the healing process without the side effects of medication or surgery. Acupuncture helps the body heal itself naturally by restoring the flow of blood and Qi (oxygen) to the injury site.  Whenever pain is felt in the body, it is a sign that there is Qi and blood stagnation which needs to be addressed.  If this stagnation is not removed, the pain may become chronic.

Acupuncture can Improve Athletic Performance

Acupuncture is also a great treatment for symptoms of over-exertion. Whether you are a weekend warrior or a professional athlete, you may find that you have over done it and feel pain and stiffness in your joints or muscles. In the short term, you may be tempted to relieve the aches and pains with pain-relieving medication. However, over the long run, regular use of medication may lead to further or more serious injury and affect your athletic performance, endurance and vitality.

Acupuncture is a time-tested, safe way to relieve the aches and pains and help you return to peak performance by relieving discomfort, reducing swelling, improving range of motion, shortening recovery time, and strengthening your overall health. Acupuncture can help you become a stronger, faster and more agile athlete.
