ORTHOPEDIC AND SPORTS MEDICINE ACUPUNCTURE


The use of acupuncture in the treatment of sports injuries and pain is not a modern phenomena. In fact, the origins of Chinese medicine coincided with the development of martial arts thousands of years ago. Having the ability to heal was part of the moral code of the Chinese warrior. Modern orthopedic acupuncture builds upon this application by incorporating western medical principles and assessment. 


During treatment orthopedic and manual muscle testing is used to access the exact location of pain, muscle imbalance or joint dysfunction. Using a unique selection of points, this style of acupuncture can “reset” and strengthen muscles rendered dysfunctional or weak due to repetitive stress, injury or postural inefficiency. Compromised joint spaces and sprained or partially torn ligaments are also addressed by using precise local needling. The needles create micro-stimulation reorganizing tissue and encouraging blood flow in the compromised structure to encourage healing. Due to the careful selection of anatomically significant points, treatments are non-invasive and highly affective.
