To treat injuries and other pain conditions, we combine principles and practices of traditional Chinese Medicine with Western-based notions of sports medicine, including orthopedics, physiology, Trigger Points, and motor points. Built on millennia of experience with acupuncture points and treatments for specific conditions, we also incorporate more modern knowledge of the human body and dysfunctions that athletes commonly face.
Acupuncture can help not only elite athletes and weekend warriors but also non-athletes with muscolskeletal pain, acute and chronic injuries, and post-surgery recovery. Importantly, acupuncture can also assist with other problems, such as insomnia, general fatigue, and gastrointestinal problems, that might exacerbate pain or delay recovery.
Finally, each acupuncture treatment is tailored to the individual, both in terms of the specific medical condition and the person’s needs and desires. Even if two people have the same injury, their treatments will likely differ at least a bit because their general health, lifestyles, and treatment goals will not be the identical. Because of the wide variety of techniques and modalities available to us, we can choose an appropriate treatment for each unique situation.
