All eyes are on Brazil lately for the World Cup Soccer. I have treated quite a few soccer players with acupuncture to help heal their injuries. Most soccer injuries are ankle sprains or strains and ACL tears in the knee.
Success Story: I had a patient with a quadriceps strain from soccer, and when he came in his thigh was numb. After only one session of acupuncture with electro-stimulation, he got off the table as exclaimed “Wow! I can feel my leg again”. We did 2 more treatments, and he had full recovery. Acupuncture can work extremely quickly and effectively, depending on the extent of the injury and whether it’s an acute or chronic injury.
Acupuncture is a great alternative to healing sports injuries, as well as strengthening and improving performance. In the UK, many pro teams enlist acupuncturists full time to treat their athletes and keep them in the game.
If you have a sports injury, give WellStream Acupuncture a call, and we’ll get you back in the game!
