"Sticking it" to injuries


 I just came across a great article on the YinOva facebook page called "Acupuncture: Sticking it to injuries" and I wanted to share a few words about it.  The author is an MD who explains why he stopped prescribing anti-inflammatories and now recommends treating injuries with acupuncture instead.

"Most people believe that acupuncture only offers pain relief. This is true, but, more importantly, acupuncture helps facilitate injury repair and wound healing by accessing energy pathways called meridians. The placement of the acupuncture needles on these pathways improves energy flow, which speeds healing..... I have treated multiple athletes who have sustained acute strains and sprains with acupuncture. They returned to exercise in almost half the time it normally takes."

This mirrors my experience in treating musculo-skeletal conditions and injuries over the past decade as well.  Acupuncture can help to speed up the recovery time of acute injuries and at our centre, we have seen significant improvements in people who have sustained motor vehicle accidents as well (click here to read some testimonials).

Acupuncture is a great treatment option for chronic pain conditions like arthritis, tendonitis and bursitis as well, by helping to reduce the inflammation surrounding the affected areas.

Consider acupuncture therapy for the treatment of the following injuries:

  • Acute strains and sprains
  • Acute and chronic arthritis
  • Tendonitis and bursitis
  • Low back pain
  • Low energy
