Acupuncture for Sports Injuries
Acupuncture needles can be used with great effect for specific injuries and repetitive strain conditions.
Needles are applied on the points around the painful, affected area. One or two distal points, points further along the meridian from the site of pain, will usually have a beneficial effect, through clearing the blockage.
The treatment is most effective when combined with massage and stretches. A series of weekly sessions may be required to have the best outcome for some injuries/conditions.
Conditions, which may be helped with a needling treatment, include:
- Knee conditions
- Hip pain
- Tennis Elbow
- Wrist conditions
- Neck and shoulder, stiffness and pain
