How does Acupuncture work?
At Active Health we utilize contemporary medical acupuncture combined with traditional Chinese acupuncture. The results are much more effective.
In many sports injuries, scar tissue develops in muscle and tendons. Also trigger areas develop in damaged muscles. These trigger areas cause pain and restricted movement. These areas of adhesions are located and then treated with acupuncture. The acupuncture reduces trigger points, adhesions and spasms.
Acupuncture also reduces, pain, swelling and inflammation and helps restore good blood supply to the areas so that tissues receive good oxygen supply.The improved blood supply and oxygen is what allows for healing.
