Acupuncture For Sports Injuries

As an athlete, it’s soul-crushing to be sidelined because of your affliction or being unable to perform at your highest potential, which is why attending regular acupuncture for injuries is essential

Intense training puts the body under constant stress. The muscular micro-tears — critical for building muscle mass when given time to rest and recover — often don’t heal properly under many intense training regimens. This can lead to fatigue, accidents, and chronic pain. Over time, the micro-damage can build up, affecting not only performance and body function but also the longevity of your athletic career and overall quality of life.

At New Leaf Clinic, we provide the perfect remedy to counteract any sign of pain or ailment in your body. Acupuncture for sports injuries is an effective, personalised, non-pharmaceutical, and non-surgical method of treatment athletes can largely benefit from. As a holistic alternative or complement to Western Medicine, it works to restore the body’s natural state of balance by accessing your ability to heal. Many professional sports teams have specialists who perform acupuncture for sports athletes on staff to fast-track healing times and resolve stubborn ailments.

The treatment works to aid acute ailments from intense or repetitive physical activity that began centuries ago. It was, and still is, one of the primary means of quick healing for the martial arts, and the tradition is now being recognised for its benefits in a growing number of professional athletic activities. We undertake a comprehensive musculoskeletal assessment to pinpoint the problem areas. Our acupuncture for injuries is customised to assist you to reach peak performance or expedite your recovery and get you back to your competitive edge.

Eastern medicine views pain as an obstructive syndrome where there is an interruption of vital energy, blood or fluids to the afflicted area. During our acupuncture for sports injuries, the needles are placed along certain acupoints that help the body redirect this energy to the afflicted area. Physiologically speaking, the manipulation of these acupoints causes a two-fold reaction that heals the pain.

First, the treatment causes the body to release certain neurohormones, such as endorphins and encephalins, which inhibit pain impulses. Secondly, acupuncture for injuries also acts as a nerve block steering the nerve impulses away from the painful nerve group. Studies using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have shown a reduction of nerve activity related to pain while the area is receiving the treatment.

Along with prescribing treatment of acupuncture for sports athletes, the Practitioner may also recommend additional combinations of different remedies such as exercises, dry needling, trigger point, motor point, moxibustion, or electric stimulation.
