According to Statistics Canada, injury due to sport and recreational involvement is second in frequency only to motor vehicle accidents.Both serious and recreational athletes alike sometimes push their bodies too hard in an attempt to become healthier, stronger, faster, or more agile.While regular exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, weekend warrior activities, extreme sports, and lack of proper training and/or stretching can increase our risk of injuries.
Instead of allowing adequate time to heal completely, we often push ourselves to continue by using painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs which only mask the problem.While the drugs may allow you to return to your sport, in the long run they may make the problem worse by slowing healing, rendering us susceptible to further injury, and causing side effects that can impact health and performance.

Acupuncture and TCM treatments will:

Relax muscles and relieve muscle spasms
Decrease pain, inflammation, and bruising
Speed healing time by improving blood circulation to the affected area
Increase the range of motion of injured joints
