"Sport Injuries: Effectively Treated with Acupuncture"

By       (Page 2 of 3 pages)   No comments
  • Disk bulges/Degenerative disk disease. I recommend seeking treatment prior to surgery. Acupuncture is used for pain and to reduce the inflammation.

    1. General soft tissue recovery, either acute or chronic.

    1. Neuropathy/Neuralgia. Nerve pain is annoying. It often moves around. It can be sharp and drilling like, or it can give you a feeling of numbness or "pins and needles."

    1. Knee, elbow, ankle injuries- ACL? Meniscus tears? or strains? Yes" treatable. If you have a knee condition that is bone on bone, acupuncture will not work, but if there is any cartilage there, acupuncture is often effective- reducing swelling, improving mobility, and strengthening the ligaments and tendons.

    1. Hamstring, Achilles, bicep tears.

    1. Shoulder injuries- Bursitis, "frozen shoulder", rotator cuffs, or scapula problems benefit from treatment.
