Acupuncture


Acupuncture in Clinton Hill, Prospect Heights and Park Slope neighborhoods

According to ancient Traditional Chinese System of Medicine, injuries occur when there are imbalances of energy along the body meridians, the paths of energy Qi. Acupuncture method seeks to restore and balance them, thereby preventing injuries and / or easing recovery. Far from being used just for a garden variety of aches and pains, Acupuncture is now widely used by athletes, ranging from weekend warriors, to professional dancers, to Olympic level champions. And it is not longer a mysterious, little known about area: it has been actively researched and discussed in prominent medical journals. You can click on the links below to some major US publications with evidence of it’s effectiveness for various orthopedic conditions. For example, good evidence now exists that acupuncture relieves symptoms of back and neck pain, as well as knee pain due to arthritis. There is evidence that short term pain relief can be expected when suffering form plantar fasciatis, tennis elbow, or Achilles tendinopathy.

We, physical therapists at Park Sports, believe that adding acupuncture to our arsenal of techniques, would benefit our patients. We hear positive feedback from you about its effects and have no reason not to make this modality available to everyone (especially, since it has virtually no negative side effects).
