  • Although sports injuries occur through a variety of tissues and in different areas of the body, they do possess common denominators; namely pain, trauma and soft tissue involvement.

Acupuncture as a modality has been shown in a variety of studies to positively influence pain and inflammation without significant side effects. This makes it an ideal intervention when managing sports injuries.
