Acupuncture is very effective in the treatment of injuries. Orthopedic injuries due to strain, sprains, contusions, repetitive motion, sciatica, or whiplash can be treated to reduce or eliminate acute or chronic pain. Acupuncture is currently a standard in the sports world and is used to treat and rehabilitate professional athletes worldwide. Orthopedic Acupuncture is a technique that involves needling motor points to release tight bands of muscle. These motor points are deep in the tissue and are the areas of highest electrical activity in the muscles. By applying acupuncture to the motor points the muscle is reset which allows it to relax and to properly heal.
