Acupuncture for sports and fitness injuries
Anyone who plays sport or exercises regularly has probably experienced muscle pain or even injuries from time to time. Did you know that acupuncture can be a really helpful treatment method for these kinds of issues?
Overuse and injury can create tight knots or bands of muscle fibres known as trigger points that can cause pain and discomfort. Acupuncture releases trigger points to reduce muscle tension and improve flexibility. Acupuncture can also work wonders by reducing inflammation and promoting blood flow.
So, let’s say you’ve got an injury or a pulled hamstring from your last game – acupuncture can help to alleviate the pain, reduce inflammation in the tendons, and promote healing, helping you recover from your injuries more quickly
And, if you’re dealing with chronic muscle pain or an injury that keeps recurring, acupuncture can release problematic muscle tension and strengthen to improve your overall function.
If you’re looking for a natural and effective way to manage your muscle pain or injuries, it may be worth giving acupuncture a try! Get in touch if you’d like to find out more about how it could help you
