Nothing feels quite like spring in Colorado. The sun rises over the prairie and seems to beckon,”Come out and play.” Kids and adults, old and young, Coloradoans know that getting up and getting outside isn’t just good for the body its good for the soul. But if you have a sports injury, spring mornings may seem bittersweet at best. Here at Marchand Acupuncture, we want to help you get back out there enjoying the hiking, biking, running, kayaking or another thing you love as soon as possible. This is why acupuncture is so crucial to treating your sports injuries.
How it helps
Acupuncture alleviates much of the pain and discomfort associated with sports injuries. The treatment works along specific pressure points which work as triggers in different muscles, muscle groups, joints and more. While it is a good way of help alleviate pain, it has also been shown that regular treatment can improve flexibility and healing times. Often cutting down on stiffness can provide significant relief as well.
Who does it help?
Athletes of all skill sets and abilities can be helped by acupuncture. Runners, swimmers, yoga instructors, cyclists, soccer players and even football players have used acupuncture to heal from injuries and stay in the sport of their choice for as long as possible. In fact, Tiki Barbar–the former running back for the new York Giants–worked with an acupuncturist to relieve severe muscle strain.
It can treat tennis, elbow, tendinitis, neck pain, and much more. So if you’re ready to ditch the ibprohan and the TV remote and get back out into the rocky mountain air doing the thing you love, its time to call Marchand Acupuncture.
