Many professional and amateur athletes use both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicines as a part of their training and conditioning program. Acupuncture is widely used in Sports medicine to both treat sports injuries and to improve performance in actual competition. These athletes have found the treatments to be extremely beneficial in both areas.
Marcellus Wiley, a defensive end for the San Diego Chargers, is one patient who noticed how quickly he felt the benefit of acupuncture ."I responded quickly and favorably to the treatment," Wiley said. "It was refreshing to receive therapy that allowed me to sustain my health for the duration of a season and physically grueling career."
Baltimore Ravens safety Will Demps regards sports acupuncture as a definite asset to his training.
Sports Injuries are usually musculo-skeletal conditions caused by physical training, martial arts and competitive sports as well as outdoor activities such as hiking, climbing, running, etc. Activities such as these commonly stress or damage muscles, ligaments, tendons bones and joints.
The use of acupuncture to treat injuries began centuries ago and specific acupuncture techniques were developed to stop pain and dramatically increase recovery time
Today, its use has expanded into many areas of competitive sports. It was, and still is, one of the best means of healing in the martial arts.
