Acupuncture is Effective for treating both Acute Injuries and Stubborn Chronic Injuries.
At the beginning of your treatment, John will perform Orthopedic tests including the assessment of joint range of motion, postural evaluation, and individual muscle tests. This will help to accurately diagnose and differentiate the injury to identify a strain, sprain, tendonitis, bursitis, or many other musculoskeletal injuries that affect the professional athlete and "weekend warriors" alike.
In addition to Acupuncture, John may recommend stretches and exercises, dietary modifications, Chinese herbal formulas and herbal liniments. For Acute (new) injuries, Acupuncture should begin as soon as possible after the injury for the best results. Acupuncture is also very effective integrated with chiropractic treatment and physical therapy, and can become an integral part of your Sports Medicine treatment plan.
