Sports Acupuncture is a synergistic blend of the ancient wisdom and methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), modern sports medicine science and assessment, and specialized treatment techniques. It is a comprehensive and intelligent approach to treating pain, sports injuries and work injuries, as well as promoting enhanced athletic performance and improve range of motion.

Using the TCM approach to the body, acupuncturists can ascertain the exact channel of pain or injury and use specialized acupuncture points to get you back on track and back in the game.

When performed by a licensed acupuncturist results can be immediate. This allows for a quick return to activity and peak level of performance for the patient. Follow-up treatments may be necessary to maintain optimal body functioning and for lasting results.
