Frequently asked questions
Sports acupuncture refers to an integrative approach using methods of both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and sports medicine including several techniques so that we may identify what is not working properly to address the issue.
Commonly treated injuries with sports acupuncture include, but are not limited to, neck pain, tendonitis, migraines, knee pain, tennis/golfer’s elbow, hamstring strain, sciatica, shoulder injuries, concussions, ACL tears, hip flexor strains, groin pulls, shin splints, bulged disc, low back pain, and more.
Top athletes swear by acupuncture for a speedy recovery time, and acupuncture works for athletes in a number of ways. Many athletes use acupuncture to delay or even remove the need for surgery, and if surgery is needed, acupuncture is also effective at maximizing the post-surgical recovery process.
Regular treatments in between training helps to optimize the natural healing process in the body, therefore speeding up recovery time by relieving muscle tension when the athlete encounters an injury.
In the way of sports injuries, acupuncture increases circulation at the injury site which helps ease tight muscles, and decrease muscle fatigue or soreness. Additionally, acupuncture works by increasing tissue regeneration, improve blood flow, increase energy, and calms the nervous system – all of which are imperative to peak athletic performance and sustainability.

Our acupuncturist will do an in-depth consultation including medical history as well as possibly tongue analysis, pulse, and observing the flexion, extension, and posture of your body to evaluate your health & energy. Our acupuncturist will take all information collected during this consultation in order to determine your Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnosis, and create the most appropriate treatment plan for your athletic needs.
It is okay to work out before acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture effectiveness can even be enhanced by the increased blood flow from working out.
However, working out after acupuncture is not recommended. It is important to take it easy after acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture gives your body stimulus that works towards rebalancing your system which takes a lot of energy, blood, and other resources. If you put most of those resources to your muscles with exercise after treatment, your body will not have the power it needs to put towards rebalancing the body and addressing your athletic concern that brought you in for treatment in the first place. It is essential to rest, especially in the area of concern, while the body uses the increased circulation in the area from treatment to heal itself.
Why Sports Acupuncture?
Acupuncture for sports is used for prevention, recovery, and rehabilitation from sports-related injuries. Studies have shown that regular acupuncture treatment has significant effects on blood flow throughout the body, which in the case of sports, boosts athletic performance. The goal of acupuncture for sports at Acupuncture Specialists is to bring balance back to the body which is needed to achieve sports performance optimization, and athletic career longevity. Essentially, we want to prevent athletic injuries with regular acupuncture treatments, but if it happens, we are successful at treating sports injury pain as well to get you back in the game as fast as possible doing what you love.
