People in the sporting profession tend to feel injuries more than those in other lines of work or activities. This is because an injury means time away from doing what they love. It means time away from people they connect with. It can even mean lost income. On a personal level being injured can also lead to feelings of helplessness, inadequacy and even depression.
There are now many kinds of sports today, forcing athletes to use more and more of their muscles, bones and body parts. Sports has also become more and more competitive, leading many athletes to push their limits to achieve victory.
Often the quest for greatness comes with disregard for well-being. This leads to increased chances of sports-related physical injury, the most common of which include hamstring strain, runner’s knee, rotator cuff injuries and back pain.

There is also no need to wait to heal after an acupuncture session as opposed to other procedures like surgery. Our acupuncture experts are certified in their practice and they use the best equipment, their needles are also just used once and never again.
