Acupuncture for Sports Injuries

Sports injuries refer to the kinds of injury that can occur during sports or exercise, and even through day-to-day movement. While it is possible to injure any part of the body, injuries most commonly affect the lower limb, particularly the ankle and knee.

Sprains and strains can also affect the shoulder, elbow, leg, foot, groin and back, in particular the following:

  • Achilles Tendon
  • Ligament Injuries
  • Rotator Cuff Injuries
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Golfer’s Elbow
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Knee Pain
  • Shin Splints
  • Stress Fractures
  • Hamstring Injuries
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Acute Lumbar Sprain
  • and others

At New Leaf Acupuncture, Dublin, the aims of our treatments are to relieve pain, control inflammation, hasten resolution of a haematoma, and accelerate repair as well as the restoration of function and recovery of muscle power.

Acupuncture is increasingly used by top sports players, athletes and sports teams to treat musculoskeletal problems. It is used both on its own and in conjunction with other therapies such as physiotherapy and osteopathy both for recovery and to keep one at one’s peak.
