3 Effective Benefits of Acupuncture for Sports Injuries, Manhattan, New York

Whether you’re a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, an injury can have a negative impact on both your mental and physical well-being. To help speed up the recovery and alleviate any painful symptoms, Cindy E. Levitz, Lic. Acupuncturist, the premier licensed acupuncture office in Manhattan, NY, provides acupuncture for sports injuries to locals and visitors alike. If you’ve been hurt and are looking for a natural way to improve your range of motion, flexibility, and strength – and recover from your injury faster and better - here’s how Acupuncture can help.

Why Use Acupuncture for Sports Injuries?

1. Improves Range of Motion

When you suffer a muscle strain or sprain, it’s common to experience swelling and reduced range of motion in the area of the injury. Acupuncture helps to reduce the inflammation and restore function to the muscles. By using specific acupuncture points, muscle motor points, tuina bodywork and exercises, the problem area is rehabilitated more quickly. In this office, you will receive highly effective treatment by a Certified Sports Medicine Acupuncture Specialist. It is a comprehensive approach which incorporates a knowledge of Western Orthopedics and Eastern Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine to alleviate your symptoms, but also improve healing at a deeper level to help you avoid re-injury.

2. Reduces Pain

acupuncture for sports injuriesThe acupuncturist will tailor treatment of specific acupuncture points, motor points and tender areas for you personally to trigger the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers and enhance your system’s natural healing ability. Doing so reduces the inflammatory response that causes discomfort and swelling at the injury site; and helps the muscles, tendons and ligaments heal.

3. Boosts Blood Circulation

Acupuncture removes the obstructions in the body’s energy pathways, or meridians, which are responsible for the flow of Qi. The Qi (energy) moves the Blood, so this also helps to increase blood circulation, which is crucial for bringing oxygen, healing cells and nutrients to the area of injury. It also flushes out the toxins to promote healing and decrease muscle tension and tightness.

If you are suffering from a sports injury, acupuncture is an effective,  popular and natural treatment option.
