Most sports-related injuries occur when a particular part of the body is overused, which leads to a repetitive stress injury. This can lead to injuries such as runner’s knee or tennis elbow. Many athletes rely on acupuncture to treat their injuries and boost their performance – but also to prevent injuries from occurring in the first place. Acupuncture offers many benefits when it comes to pain management, recovery, and prevention, including: 1. Releasing tight muscles or activating muscles that aren’t firing properly. 2. Boosting healing and recovery of tendons and ligaments. 3. Relieving stress. 4. Improving the immune system. 5. Aiding with sleep. 6. Keeping the pain away. These are all great reasons to use acupuncture to keep you active.
