Most dis-eases and pain are due to a disruption, blockage, or deficiency of the qi flowing in the body. Most signs and symptoms are an indication that this qi flow has been disrupted. Through acupuncture, tiny needles are inserted into the body to stimulate the bodies own natural resources to unblock or nourish the flow of qi. As a result, balance is reestablished and wellbeing is improved. By bringing the body back into balance, the body has an opportunity to heal itself from the inside out.
Our goal with sports acupuncture is to decrease acute and chronic pain, increase mobility, and improve performance and recovery. We will take you through a series of manual muscle tests and a range of motion assessment to determine what muscles may be inhibited, not working optimally, and/or contributing to your pain. Then, we will connect electrical stimulation to the acupuncture needle, at the motor point, to help correct muscle dysfunction and/or imbalance.
Trigger Point Acupuncture/Dry Needling
Acupuncture needles are inserted into tight muscle bands and trigger points, causing a twitch response of the muscle, to release knots and muscle tension. When active, trigger points may cause referred pain and limited range of motion.
