What is Acupuncture?

Based in the traditions and wisdom of the East, and clinically proven in the West, acupuncture medicine treats a variety of dysfunctions and diseases. With the insertion of a single use, filiform needle into a specific point on the body, a healing response is initiated. In addition to the use of needles, acupuncture medicine may include electrostimulation, cupping, guasha, tuina, and moxibustion. These modalities collectively work to treat the root cause of the concern.

Sports medicine acupuncture, through RCT’s. has been shown to induce short term pain relief and aid in the recovery from dysfunction to an injured body regions(s) through systemic and local mechanisms acting as mediators to the central and nervous systems. This noninvasive, conservative approach for managing sports injuries has been effective for a myriad of upper and lower extremity concerns such as, but not limited to, rotator cuff injury, shin splints, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, lateral meniscus rupture, impingement syndrome, ganglion cysts, DOMS, lateral epicondylitis, and more.
