Treating Sports’ Injuries with TCM

Sidelined with an injury? TCM is very effective at treating both acute traumatic injuries and chronic or overuse injuries.

mtbSports-related injuries can impact joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Acupuncture, Tui Na (massage), and other related TCM therapies can help treat a wide range of sports’ injury symptoms ranging from relief of occasional discomfort while exercising to speeding post-surgery recovery time.

climbingIn treating sports-related injuries, I use an integrated therapy that focuses on promoting healing in the injured the area, while strengthening and balancing the body to prevent re-injury. TCM treatment for injuries can include acupuncture, massage, cupping, exercise, herbal liniments, and more.  TCM is also effective in treating the lingering effects of old injuries, such as stiffness, dull pain, and weakness.

In addition to treating injuries, TCM also provides benefits to improve your athletic performance and give you a competitive edge.
