Sports Injury

Acupuncture Holistic Allergy Treatments Des Moines IA Iowa holistic healthy lifestyle

Injuries occurring from sports are mostly due to trauma or overuse syndromes involving the musculoskeletal system and its soft tissues. Trauma to these soft tissues, including ligaments, tendons and muscles, are generally the result of falls, blows, sprains/strains, collisions, compressions, crushing injuries or other disruptions of the healing processes due to inflammation.

Some Commonly Treated Sports Injuries:

  • Ankle Sprain
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Arch Pain
  • Lower Back Strain
  • Groin Pull
  • Hamstring Strain
  • Muscle Pull
  • Neck Pain
  • Runner’s Knee
  • Shin Splints
  • Shoulder Impingement
  • Tennis Elbow

 

…a Johns Hopkins study found that people with chronic tendinitis or arthritis who had 20-minute acupuncture sessions twice a week for 6 weeks had less pain and disability than people who only thought they were receiving acupuncture (the needles didn’t penetrate the skin). Additionally, a 2008 study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that participants who were jabbed for muscle soreness 24 and 48 hours after they exercised to exhaustion reported significantly less pain than people who didn’t receive the treatment.
