Acupuncture and Natural Medicine for Sports Injuries

You've done it again -- ran that extra mile, played extra hard, and now your body is reminding you constantly. Maybe its your lower back, your heel, your elbow, or your shoulder. Perhaps the pain is keeping you from doing what you love. These are times when we can help.

For treatment of pain conditions and sports injuries, acupuncture is often our primary treatment approach. Increasingly, professional athletes are using acupuncture to maximize their performance and minimize the aches and pains that go along with pushing their body to the limit. In many cases, the pain can be reduced very quickly -- sometimes in as few as one or two sessions. Even very severe pain can often be relieved through acupuncture treatment.

Of course, any treatment method has strengths and limitations. There are times when surgery or physical therapy are the most appropriate options. In the area of sports medicine, we specialize in acupuncture for affordable, fast relief of your aches and pains. Rather than as a last resort, we hope to be your first choice for routine care.

Acupuncture for Pain Relief

Many people enjoy the way that acupuncture helps the body to relax and heal itself. Acupuncture is a safe, effective, and generally painless therapy which can often be highly effective in treatment of pain conditions. From an acupuncturist's perspective, pain can be caused by a blockage in the body's vital energy. Modern medical research has shown that acupuncture can help the body to release its own naturally occurring pain-relief chemicals.

Our patients include marathon runners, dancers, triathlon athletes, and people of all ages with minor or major aches and pains. The most common sports injuries we treat include back pain, shoulder pain, leg pain (sciatica), knee pain, and heel pain (plantar's fasciitis).

Our patients have included marathon runners, dancers, triathlon athletes, olympic and professional athletes, bodybuilders, and people of all ages with minor or major aches and pains.
