Acupuncture is best known for its ability to treat pain, lessening the need for pain medications or eliminating them altogether. Additionally acupuncture speeds recovery time by actually compelling the body to produce more connective tissue, while simultaneously changing perception of pain in the S1 area of brain.
How fast you’ll recover depends on a few factors: how bad is the injury, how long have you had it, as well as your age, nutritional status and lifestyle habits, all of which influence your body’s ability to heal.
We understand the impact injury can have on daily life – it’s never fun – but to make the time pass more productively and help you stay proactive in your recovery, we’ll give you “homework,” to do throughout the week and support the treatments you’re receiving.
Of course, it’s human nature to want to jump back in the moment you feel better, and certainly the goal is to get you back out doing what you enjoy and staying physically active.
