Sports injuries are commonplace with athletes and dancers due to rigorousness and long hours involved in training. They do not discriminate with age. 

Acupuncture is an excellent way to heal injuries and relieve sore muscles. Moreover, assessment and treatment can improve performance!  Most injuries occur due to underlying biomechanical imbalances in the body. By addressing these imbalances and targeting problem areas, our athlete and dancer patients are able to advance function and utilize proper form more readily while training and performing. 

Longevity is key where physical fitness and athletic performance are involved. We don’t simply focus on the few months of recovery from the current injury – we want to keep our patients well equipped for years of physical activity and acuity that they love and enjoy so much.  Athletes of all ages will benefit tremendously from active treatment and maintenance to keep the musculoskeletal system free from adhesions and imbalances.  

Many of our young athletes have seen marked relief in stubborn chronic pain and prevention of repeat injuries through acupuncture treatments.  The less pain you are in, the more you’ll be able to focus on advancing in your athletic career!
