The use of acupuncture to treat acute injuries from intense or repetitive physical activity began centuries ago in China and gained popularity in the treatment of releasing pain and reducing recovery time for martial arts competitors.
Although many techniques and styles of acupuncture have evolved over the centuries, one of the most exciting new developments in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries is the Sports Medicine Acupuncture ®.
This is a unique and modern acupuncture technique developed over many years of observation, research and clinical proven practice by Matt Callison, L.Ac. He integrated traditional Chinese theory of acupuncture with western orthopedic diagnosis modalities and sports medicine.
It is an effective method that regulates nerve conduction and circulation in the area of inflammation and manages pain by stimulation of endogenous opioids or endorphins.
