Acupuncture is since immemorial time used to relieve pain. Recently, it has gained popularity in sports medicine.
Many athletes are treated with acupuncture to relieve injuries such as sprains, muscle strains and tendonitis.
Recovery time can vary, depending on the individual and the severity of the injury, but there is an improvement in recovery time if the athlete is treated with acupuncture.
Today, acupuncture is an integral part of many professional sports training programs.
It is also shown that acupuncture can help athletes recover from fatigue, and delay the onset and relieve muscle pain (aches and contractures).
