As the world watches the Summer 2012 Olympics with bated breath, Chinese medicine has stepped into the spotlight. Each athlete has a regime that allows him or her to best perform, and sometimes it extends beyond the typical physical training. Many professional athletes employ an acupuncturist to keep in top shape.
To maintain peak performance, it’s not uncommon for athletes to have consistent treatments with an orthopedic acupuncturist. These treatments can range from acupuncture to cupping or Chinese herbology. An acupuncturist with orthopedic training can treat tendoninitis, acute trauma like bruising, swelling, and muscle, tendon, and ligament injuries, as well as chronic pains such as low back, shoulder, knee and ankle pain, often caused by a sprain.
