Heal & Prevent Injuries with ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is becoming increasingly well known for its safe, rapid and effective treatment of pain. Many athletes are finding the quick results from acupuncture help them return to competition faster than any other therapy. The main reason is acupuncture’s ability to quickly reduce inflammation, relax muscles and speed the healing process.
Biomedical studies have shown that acupuncture reduces pain by stimulating the secretions of endorphins (the body’s own pain-killers) and neurotransmitters such as seratonin and noradrenaline

Some of the common issues acupuncture can effectively treat include:

  • Sports injuries: sprains, strains, tendonitis, chin splints, pulled hamstring, muscle cramps, muscle pulls & spasms,ligament & cartilage tears, stiff muscles & joints
  • Musculoskeletal disorders such as head, neck, shoulder, arm, back, knee and leg pain
  • Headaches, migraines
  • Fractures, bruises and tears
  • Whiplash injury
  • Arthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Post-race and post surgical pain
