How are sports injuries treated?
Depending on the injury, there are a variety of natural therapies to consider. We will work with you to determine the best solution for your pain.
Gua Sha is a needle-less technique used to stimulate healing in injuries that are close to the surface of the skin. This technique has origins in China and has been in practice for over 2000 years.
Cold LASER does not generate heat and is completely painless. The laser actually helps to align collagen fibers within the tissues to help strengthen injured ligaments or tendons as quickly as possible. This is often used in conjunction with other treatment options.
Acupuncture includes the use of very small needles to stimulate the flow of the Vital Energy, Qi, bringing circulation, nutrients, and healing to an area. Using the TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) meridians in the body, we stimulate the body to self-heal.
Prolotherapy is a natural injection technique used to stimulate inflammation in a particular joint, which increases blood flow to a very precise area of the body. This results in the body’s innate ability to heal the injured area. This therapy works very well for injuries such as MCL or LCL of the knee, or even deeper structures, such as the ACL of the knee.
