Acupuncture and sports injuries

Lower leg treatment

Acupuncture is a tool commonly used by keen sportsmen and sportswomen, as it helps with injury recovery and if used regularly, with sports performance. Usichenko, Gizhko and Wendt (2009) wrote a paper in the “Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine” journal where they reviewed how an acupuncture program helped a top modern pentathlon athlete was associated with improvement of his results.

The patient in the picture suffered from a sudden hamstring injury that affected the whole of his posterior chain on the right side, and a treatment with acupuncture needles an an infrared heat lamp helped alleviate the symptoms; we will continue with a twice-a-week program until the issue is resolved and he can resume his regular training.
