As an ACC registered treatment provider I am experienced in musculoskeletal disorders and pain management. I know sports injuries are REALLY frustrating. By stimulating your body’s own natural healing and repair mechanisms, I aim to return you to a state where you can get back to doing what you love doing. Acupuncture is useful to relax muscles, relieve inflammation and heal ligaments and cartilage.
Acupuncture may also benefit athletic training or and performance. This is done by moderating the autoimmune system, metabolism, and the thyroid. www.acufinder.com/Acupuncture+Information/Detail/Acupuncture+for+Sports+Performance+Enhancement
