Now that people are working out more I see more and more patients with soft tissue injuries they have sustained while working out. We all know exercise is a great way of improving your health and well being, it’s essential that you do it safely. However, if you do get injured, then acupuncture and TuiNa can really help with the healing of soft tissue damage and many patients are surprised at how quickly it works.
Acupuncture needles stimulate the body’s circulation and trigger an immune response, causing the removal of toxins and stagnated cells surrounding the injury. By providing fresh, healthy cells to the affected area the injury will heal faster and swelling and inflammation will reduce which in turn which in turn means there will be less pain.
Some patients experience repetitive injuries, the result of which can also cause an increased level of stress, having a ripple effect that can disrupt sleep patterns, digestion, hormone balance and other systems within the body.
In cases like these, the psychological and emotional benefits of acupuncture improve the healing process providing the body and mind, deep relaxation, relieving mental stress and allowing the body to heal while in a meditative state.If you find you’ve over done it, there’s no quicker way to recovery than a combination of acupuncture and TuiNa.
