Sports Medicine Acupuncture is commonly used for pain management and is a valued modality. It is becoming a recognized treatment for frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, back pain, torn ligaments, tendonitis, shin splints, arthritis, bursitis, sciatica, tight hamstrings, muscle/tendon strain, golfer’s shoulder, stiff neck, repetitive use syndrome, and other ailments athletes may incur. Acupuncture therapy can be used at every level of athletic ability for the relief of these injuries.
Acupuncture can also be used as a treatment option to enhance athletic performance. It can facilitate recovery from fatigue, delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), and contracture. In addition, improved circulation and stress relief can also be achieved through acupuncture therapy. These effects can readily improve sports performance and speed up return to competition.
