Sports Acupuncture and Therapy
We use a herb called moxa, which is applied to the body with a function similar to “ICE” treatments. It removes inflammation and fluid from the tissues. It promotes the healing process and quickens the recovery time.
Plantar Fasciitis: Acupuncture is a very effective treatment for this problem, it can assist you to walk, run or stand without pain
Sprained Ankle: Acupuncture and moxa removes fluid and inflammation
Tennis Elbow: Research shows that 86% of patients had a resolution to this problem after treatment with acupuncture.
Strained Back and Pulled Muscles: Studies have shown that acupuncture can reduce pain by 50% or more.
Slipped disc: Acupuncture reduces pain and assists recovery time
Frozen Shoulder: The pain of a frozen shoulder can be described as a tiger’s bite.
It can be debilitating and take many months of exercise to see improvement. I have assisted many patients to improve their range of movement and they have been able to recover completely.
Sciatica: The muscles of the gluteus maximus may clamp up causing discomfort and a sensation down the legs. Acupuncture assists to release the muscles surrounding the nerve. Many patients can’t thank me enough when that pain is released for them through acupuncture.
RSI: I have treated many guitar players, musicians and office workers with RSI and they have been able to work with their arms again without pain.
