Tendonitis, Bursitis, Muscle Strains & Sprains

Overuse injuries from repetitive work or sports injuries

Injuries that are acute often have inflammation, as well as injuries that develop over time from over use, such as “tennis elbow”. Acupuncture works to reduce inflammation by flushing out the congested circulation, helping the fresh circulation to heal the injury and relaxing the muscles, which all contribute to reduced pain. We may also suggest stretches and home care advice to get you better faster.
