Denver Athletes Benefit Using Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine within a Sports Medicine Treatment Regimen

Experts within the field of sports medicine have made great strides within their research work in recent years. These developments come as professional sports teams and athletes around the world look to improve their performance and reduce their injury recovery time. Now, research is showing that those Denver athletes who include acupuncture and Chinese Medicine within their sports medicine treatment regimen can benefit significantly from the treatment methodology’s innate advantages. Within this blog, we’ll explore two areas, among several others, in which athletes (Professional, Collegiate, or Recreational) can expect to experience the benefits of integrating Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine into their Sports Medicine Treatment Regimen.

Within this blog, we’ll explore two areas, among several others, in which athletes (Professional, Collegiate, or Recreational) can expect to experience the benefits of integrating Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine into their Sports Medicine Treatment Regimen.

 

1)      Performance

 

The use of acupuncture during the build-up to a sporting event has been shown to help optimize heart and lung capacity of elite basketball players. This increased capacity ensures that less stress is placed on this critical areas of the body during play and therefore allows the athlete to be more comfortable, more focused and therefore better prepared to achieve strong results in terms of performance. 

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal medicine can improve athletic performance in regards to the following: Increasing speed in the lower extremities for athletes, such as runners and cyclists; Benefiting and increasing Cardiovascular capacity; Improving power and endurance in both the upper and lower extremities; Improving and increasing body coordination for sports that involve jumping, throwing & multi-directional movements, such as: skiing, swimming, gymnastics, rock climbing, basketball, lacrosse, soccer and dancing.

Specific Sport and Athletic Enhancing acupuncture protocols might be of benefit, support and enhancement to both your training and/or time of competition, as well as, increasing and enhancing your ability to perform your given sport. The protocols involve the application of Traditional Chinese & Korean acupuncture techniques, as well as, motor point and trigger point therapy via acupuncture, coupled with the knowledge of anatomy, orthopedics and sports medicine.  Some athletes find these treatments to offer “significant” support and enhancement to their performance .

 

2)      Pain Management

 

Acupuncture has been shown to address the underlying root cause of pain. This is ideal within the modern medical environment where pain management protocols often consist of pain relieving drugs that are simply used to mask the underlying medical issues. When acupuncture is applied at certain trigger points within the muscle tissue, muscle tension is relieved. Research has shown that simply applying acupuncture needles at these trigger points, which are small knots within bands of tight muscles, muscle spasms can be reduced as much as 60% and result in a 40% increase in range of motion for athletes.

 

There has never been a better time for Denver athletes to utilize acupuncture within their sports medicine treatment. Get back to playing the sport you love, and improve overall performance by conducting more research into this exciting and developing field!
