Sports Injury Acupuncture Treatment
Acupuncture needles can be placed in the area where an injury occurred. They can stimulate the production of chemicals that relieve pain and prevent it from happening again.The microtrauma of inserting a needle can stimulate a natural anti-inflammatory response in the body. This response can help remove inflammatory mediators and improve the healing process in the site. Acupuncture can also be used to relieve muscle pain by resolving muscle knots. These knots are caused by the over-contraction of certain muscle fibers. Trigger points are utilised in order to do this. Trigger points are defined by the excessive contraction of certain muscle fibers within a region. These points are located in the lower body and are responsible for loosening the muscle fibers. Through the use of mechanical stimulation, acupuncture can relieve these muscles and promote relaxation. Contact us to discover acupuncture near you.

The cups can be moved along muscles with a ligament or left fixed in place to promote blood circulation and distracts the tissue layers to promote blood circulation to injured or tight tissues.
