Heal Injures With Acupuncture
Have you ever overdone it in a workout? In athletics we sometimes push our bodies too far. Injuries can occur if we do too much too fast, and this can create more problems in the future. Pain medication is used very often in our society. It only covers up the problem long enough for us to get through our busy day, and we don’t take enough time to heal. Pain, stiffness, swelling, and tightness are your body’s way of saying there may be a deeper problem. Pain medication might allow you to go on with your day, but over time, your problem has not been addressed and could get worse.
Injuries create blocks in the acupuncture channels, or pathways, in your body. When the flow of Qi (vital energy) is blocked it creates the sensation of pain. It also does not provide those tissues with the proper oxygen and nourishment they need to heal and perform well.
Healing injuries with Acupuncture helps decrease inflammation, reduce swelling, increase circulation, improve and repair nerve function, improve range of motion, and release your body’s natural endorphins. It can help you get back to doing what you love most quicker and easier.
