How Denver Athletes Can Treat Their Sports Related Injuries through Utilizing the Alternative Medical Modality of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

There’s nothing worse for an athlete than that first initial sting of pain as they go to move their injured body part. From that moment they know that they won’t be enjoying the sport they love for a certain period of time. And that moment marks the beginning of their recovery. A recent advancement in sports medicine, however, is helping Denver patients to reduce the amount of time they spend on the mend, and give them more time out on the field. In this blog, we’ll focus on two specific types of injury that can be treated by Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

There’s nothing worse for an athlete than that first initial sting of pain as they go to move their injured body part. From that moment they know that they won’t be enjoying the sport they love for a certain period of time. And that moment marks the beginning of their recovery. A recent advancement in sports medicine, however, is helping Denver patients to reduce the amount of time they spend on the mend, and give them more time out on the field. In this blog, we’ll focus on two specific types of injury that can be treated by Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

 

1) Tendonitis Very Specific sports medicine acupuncture techniques and protocols which involve the application of Traditional Chinese & Korean acupuncture techniques, as well as, motor point and trigger point therapy via acupuncture, are utilized to address sports related issues such as tendonitis. These techniques coupled with the knowledge of anatomy, orthopedics and sports medicine help our Sports medicine acupuncturist specialists hone in on how to effectively address tendonitis issues, thereby reducing inflammation and pain associated with the tendonitis, as well as, reducing muscle tightness often associated with tendonitis.

 

For those with tendinitis of the elbow, or tennis elbow for example, studies have shown that acupuncture can have an immediate effect on pain felt within the elbow joint.

 

2) Sprains For those that have experienced a sprain injury such as a sprained ankle, acupuncture can have a tremendous restorative effect on recovery time. Acupuncture works to improve joint flexibility, by reducing inflammation and swelling, decreasing overactive muscle tonicity and improving blood flow to the injured site, thereby giving athletes with sprain injuries a better range of motion in the injured area, as well as, speeding up the recover time.

 

Denver athletes can now use acupuncture to reduce their time spent off the field or out of training, helping them return back to their sport sooner, stronger and effectively recovered.
