Orthopedic Movements and Acupuncture

Table of Contents

Orthopedic movements performed during an acupuncture session can be especially helpful for those with sports injury, performance injury, and soft tissue injury. This technique leads to pain reduction, and postural alignment by focusing on myofascial and trigger point release. Not only do orthopedic movements make acupuncture more effective, they also promote overall well-being and health.

How can Acupuncture help with Orthopedic Pain?

Acupuncture is known to help with a variety of orthopedic conditions and injuries by improving range of motion and reducing swelling and inflammation. When combined with rehabilitation and therapy, certain orthopedic conditions can be helped greatly. Here are orthopedic conditions that can be helped by acupuncture: 

  • Knee injury 
  • Ankle sprain 
  • Ankle strain 
  • Hand injury 
  • Wrist injury

Acupuncture and Sports Injury

Acupuncture is great for athletes. Acupuncture can help with sports-related injury by helping athletes gain muscle strength in the long and short term. Acupuncture also decreases the amount of pain, soreness, and inflammation an athlete feels after an injury. Acupuncture can help athletes recover faster, especially when compared to traditional injury treatments.

Acupuncture and Inflammation

Many of the orthopedic conditions people suffer from are caused by overuse  – in other words, repeating the same movement over and over again. Acupuncture can help by reducing inflammation, and promoting circulation to the ligaments and tendons. It can also help facilitate healing in areas where tissues are overused. Common overuse injuries include: 

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome 
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles tendon 
  • Trigger finger pain 
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Tennis elbow

Orthopedic Movements: The Bottom Line

Orthopedic movements can make an acupuncture session even better by increasing blood flow to certain areas, increasing overall flexibility, and increasing overall range of motion. Orthopedic injuries, including sports injury and repetitive injury, can be helped by acupuncture. Your practitioner can incorporate orthopedic movements into your acupuncture session in order to maximize your results.

Acupuncture Pain and Stress Center for all of your Acupuncture and Orthopedic needs

After your treatment you’ll go about your day as normal. That’s because Acupuncture is a noninvasive treatment. The beauty of Acupuncture is the variety of results it produces. Some people feel super energized after a session, while others feel relaxed and tranquil. Your results are individual and depend on your goals, symptoms and body. 

One important thing to keep in mind is that you should see noticeable, lasting differences after each session. As a general rule of thumb, if you’ve had 3-4 sessions without feeling a noticeable  difference, it’s time to discuss different treatment options. While Acupuncture works beautifully for most, there are some who don’t respond to it. Not every form of medicine works for every person, every time – and that’s why a holistic approach to medicine works so well. Treating our patients as whole beings allows us to monitor their progress and see what’s working and what isn’t.
