Acupuncture & Sport Injuries

From the desk of Jessica L. Molleur, Lic. Ac., DNBAO...

Acupuncture & Sports Injuries

The summer is a great time to resume your outdoor workouts or start training for an athletic event.  As your training level progresses, it’s important to listen to your body for signs and symptoms of overtraining.  Overtraining injuries occur when the stress and physical trauma from exercise occurs at a faster rate than your body can repair.  Common causes of overtraining include: improper stretching or warm-up, improper footwear, a change in training surface or structural abnormalities.    How do you know if you’re overtraining? Signs and symptoms can include: fatigue, frequent colds, chronic muscle soreness or pain, insomnia, anxiety or decreased performance.  Acupuncture can help treat common overtraining injuries, prevent overuse injuries and increase athletic performance.

Sports injuries commonly treated with acupuncture:

  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Ankle Sprains
  • Back Pain
  • IT Band Syndrome
  • Hamstring & Quad Strains
  • Knee Pain
  • Piriformis Syndrome
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Rotator Cuff Injuries
  • Shin Splints
