Acupuncture Sports Injury
Acupuncture and sports injury with Rebecca Adlington
The report released by the British Acupuncture Council has revealed that while almost three in ten Brits exercise more now than they did ten years ago, more than half (52%) have been injured during sport in the past, with one in three never recovering from their injuries.
To overcome a sporting injury, almost three in five people (56%) say they take oral painkillers, and nearly a third (32%) turn to ice/heat packs, compared to just 11% who opt for traditional acupuncture.
Based on ancient principles which go back nearly two thousand years, traditional acupuncture involves placing extremely fine, sterile needles painlessly at specific points on the body to trigger a healing response and restore balance.
