There are many factors that contribute to injury and the associated recovery timeline. Your age, diet, fitness level, muscle strength, previous injury history and injury recurrence are all factors to consider. While each of these factors need to be considered, the best natural healing solution is acupuncture.
Acupuncture can treat a wide range of injuries and even post-surgery recovery conditions including: onset of arthritis, frozen shoulder, sprains and or ligament strains, improper joint function, tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, fibromyalgia and shin splints.
How many treatments are required to get relief?
Severity of the issue, length of the issue and the person’s age are all factors to consider when treating a specific condition with acupuncture. On average people will need 1-2 treatments for a 2-4 week period of time closely monitored to determine treatment response.
There are many people that receive immediate response and relief after only 1 treatment. Because there are no pharmaceutical medications prescribed and the process is natural, the healing and or recover can be slower but the results will come.
Quick list of acupuncture benefits for athletes and or people injured:
· Stops pain immediately by reducing inflammation
· Lowers the overall healing and recover timeline by strengthening our immune system and increasing ligament strength
· Improves circulation and energy flow which in turn increases flexability and reduces nerve and muscle tension
· Improves overall mobility and reduces joint stiffness
Do the acupuncture needles hurt?
If you are an avid athlete and injured your injury hurts 100 times more than the insertion of a few needles. Most people don’t feel the needles at all. In fact many children prefer acupuncture over traditional Western medical technique and even shots because once they try it and it works the fear is removed. Don’t let fear of the unknown compromise your healing. Try acupuncture… proven…. Success!
