A Musculoskeletal Acupuncture approach specializing in sports and performance injuries, myofascial and trigger point release techniques, and postural realignment.
Blending classic Traditional Chinese Medicine and Japanese Meridian Theory while focusing on structural and myofascial techniques, promotes the treatment of pain, soft tissue injuries, postural imbalances and other general systemic disorders. Acupuncture is used as a “physical therapy” to release the muscular, skeletal and emotional holding patterns that are the root causes of tension, pain, postural asymmetries, the precursors of injury, and the residues of internal disease.
Expanding a traditional acupuncture overview to include the physical manifestations of injury—tight muscles, for example—and the trigger points that are the result of structural imbalances, disease processes, emotional holding patterns, and years of chronic constrictions, can yield results in relatively few sessions.
Conditions such as ligament tears, ACL-replacement, arthroscopic surgery, knee replacement, arthritis, tendonitis, bone spurs, repetitive stress pathologies, postural stress pathologies, sports-related trauma, auto accident related trauma, nerve pain, pinched nerves, myofascial pain, myofascial contracture, pre- and post- surgery rehabilitation, as well as a wide variety of other chronic and acute conditions can benefit from the specific treatment of Orthopedic Acupuncture.
The aim of treatment is to create a harmonious balance within the musculoskeletal and meridian systems that not only generates healing of the specific ailment, but as a bonus, promotes overall health and well-being.
