If you play a sport, then you are likely to experience some sort of injury over the course of your life. Whether it be a broken bone, sprain, pulled muscle, etc. – an injury is more than likely going to occur. If you ask any athlete what the first question is that goes through their mind when an injury occurs, their response will usually be “How long is it going to take before I can play again?”. The answer to this question will vary based on the type of injury and its severity. However, with any injury, acupuncture has shown that it can accelerate the healing process and reduce the chance of the injury from occurring again.
