Sporting Injuries

Sporting injuries often won’t heal themselves – don’t wait until it’s too late!

A common complaint of many of our clients is the niggle of an old sporting injury that had never been assessed or treated. Many of these clients were simply unaware of the damage that had occurred, and with the masking effects of pharmaceutical pain relief, had simply continued in their day-to-day tasks. We also see many clients straight from the medical clinic – and in some cases directly off the sporting field! We often treat knee, elbow, shoulder and groin sprains, with results including increased mobility, reduction in pain, release of tension and stress, and the ability to sleep!

We can assist with a variety of sporting complaints, including:

  • Strains
  • Sprains
  • Neck discomfort
  • Shoulder pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Wrist pain
  • Hip discomfort
  • Knee pain
  • Ankle pain
  • Swollen muscles
  • Shin splints

While we highly recommend having your sporting injury professionally assessed in a medical clinic to ensure you are not suffering from broken bones or torn muscles, we are ideally placed to assist with your ongoing healing and pain management process. Many of our clients are seeking a pharmaceutical-free option for pain management, and many others are seeking a reliable, long-term therapy that promotes well-being and whole-body healing. We isolate your area of trauma and work with multiple goals: to heal, to manage pain, and to re-integrate that area back into harmony with your body’s natural movement.

While pain medication will allow you the short-term benefit of continued movement, the long-term damage can be catastrophic for your body – and your injury! Acupuncture serves to stimulate not only the opioids that trigger pain relief for your injury, but it will also boost your natural immunity for accelerated healing, increase your circulation to assist with increased movement and flexibility (and healing, of course), and will also help to relax your body: an important part of the healing process.

In our purpose-built acupuncture studio, we specialize in rehabilitative acupuncture for sporting injuries, providing a natural, drug-free pain relief process in a calm and welcoming atmosphere.
