Acupunctuur en Sport

Whether you are a beginner or an elite athlete, injuries from physical exertion are always a risk. Sports are healthy but require bodily adjustments. In today's sports culture, more and more emphasis is placed on inner peace and a good energy balance, and acupuncture treatment can contribute to this.

Why Acupuncture in Sports?

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, everything revolves around the balance between Yin and Yang. Athletes aim to perform, but this can only be achieved if the body is well balanced. A body starting to exercise will need to get accustomed to the demands being placed upon it. The heart and lungs, as well as muscles, tendons, and joints, need to adapt to certain movements. Performing at a high level requires a careful approach to prevent overexertion, fatigue, and injuries. Read more here about Chinese Medicine and acupuncture.

Acupuncture for Sports Injuries

Acupuncture is not only used for the treatment of injuries, but it also works excellently for prevention. When the energy balance is disturbed, and there is too much or too little energy, physical complaints can occur. This often seems initially harmless, but minor issues can quickly grow into major injuries. Therefore, acupuncture treatment for athletes is often preventive. The acupuncturist then performs a subtle acupuncture treatment aimed at removing blockages. When an injury has already occurred, treatment is applied to the specific muscles, tendons, or joints. Blood flow to these areas is stimulated, allowing waste products to be eliminated and injured parts of the body to heal. When an athlete's physical condition is balanced, this also influences their mental well-being and vice versa.
