Sports Injury Therapy

AcuMed Sports helps players and athletes of all levels to treat injuries but more importantly, we assist in enhancing health, fitness and performance. We incorporate principles from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Western Sports Medicine (KORE Therapy) to view the patient's injury from a truly integrated perspective.

Sports injuries are most often caused by trauma from a fall or blow, or overuse/misuse of certain muscles and the neighbouring structures, including ligaments and tendons.

How we treat sports injuries

Acupuncture and KORE Therapy can be used effectively to diagnose the root cause and reduce the pain and inflammation of sports injuries. It has also been shown to increase range of motion and accelerate healing time.

Acupuncture and KORE can be employed at any stage of an injury, to prevent, treat acute pain, swelling and spasms, and address conditions that make athletes vulnerable to re-injury. Studies have shown that Acupuncture and KORE increases blood circulation to specific areas of the body, which not only promotes healing of sports injuries but also boosts athletic performance.

We can treat the following injuries:

  • Strains and sprains
  • Lower leg and ankle injuries
  • Hamstring injuries
  • Groin strains
  • Back pain
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Elbow, wrist and hand injuries
