Acupuncture for shin splints
Acupuncture is well-researched for its ability to reduce pain and increase circulation in an injurious region, helping improve the speed of healing while reducing swelling. While your body will most likely resolve shin splints on its own, it can always use a helping hand and acupuncture is the most natural hand you can lend with very few side-effects to offset its efficacy. Some athletes, especially professional ones, can’t afford the time off necessary to let shin splints fully heal by themselves. Acupuncture is a great way to speed the rate of recovery and get you back on the playing field.
Acupuncture for sports injuries
Acupuncture for shin splints is directed around the site of the injury, where the tissue is injured. By inserting needles along the edge of the tibia, we promote fast healing of the soft tissue.
