What is Sports Medicine Acupuncture?

Sports Medicine Acupuncture is a synergistic blend of the ancient techniques of Traditional Chinese Medicine, modern sports science and assessment and specialized treatment modalities. It is a comprehensive and intelligent approach to treating pain, sports injuries, work injuries and postural imbalances, as well as promote enhanced athletic performance and improve range of motion. 

How do I prepare for an Acupuncture treatment?

Try to arrive on time or a little early to be sure your entire experience is soothing. It is best to have a light meal prior to your appointment. 

Does Acupuncture have any side effects?

Acupuncture has withstood the test of time for millions of people. It is completely safe with virtually no side effects. After an acupuncture treatment, most people will experience a sense of well being, relaxation and often be energized.  

How many Acupuncture treatments will I need?

Typically acupuncture treatments are given 1-3 times per week. The exact duration of treatment depends on your condition, your basic level of health and how well you respond to acupuncture. Usually frequent treatments are done for the first few weeks; after that, the frequency of treatment may be reduced as your health is restored. 

Is Acupuncture safe?

Acupuncture is very safe when performed by a qualified practitioner. Acupuncture needles are pre-sterilized, individually packaged and disposable. Every practitioner receives extensive training in anatomy as to avoid inserting a needle in a place that can cause damage. 

Is Acupuncture painful?

Acupuncture is not painful. During initial insertion, you may feel a minor tingling until the needle reaches the correct depth under the skin. Sometimes a brief sensation of heat is felt momentarily. In most cases, patients do not even know the needles are being inserted. 

How does Acupuncture work?

Needling acupuncture points stimulates the release of chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord and brain. These chemicals can either change the experience of pain or trigger the release of chemicals and hormones which influence the body's own internal regulating system. 

What is Acupuncture?
