Acupuncture Q & A

What is acupuncture?

A+ Athlete Sports Medicine team takes a musculoskeletal approach to acupuncture, a holistic treatment that uses tiny needles to stimulate cell regeneration and healing while reducing pain. The experts have years of experience treating sports injuries and tissue damage using advanced acupuncture methods.

What are the benefits of acupuncture?

The main benefits of acupuncture include pain relief and holistic healing. Using acupuncture might mean avoiding the need for medicine or surgery. The treatment is relaxing and highly effective for sports injuries and other causes of pain. A+ Athlete Sports Medicine offers traditional acupuncture and electroacupuncture, depending on your needs.

Who is a candidate for acupuncture?

You may be a candidate for acupuncture if you struggle with:

  • Knee pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Hip pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Age-related wear
  • Stress

To determine if you’re a candidate for acupuncture, your A+ Athlete Sports Medicine specialist discusses your symptoms, medical history, and treatment preferences. 

They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and may order blood tests, X-rays, an ultrasound, or another imaging procedure to diagnose possible injuries or other medical conditions.

What happens during acupuncture treatments?

During acupuncture sessions, you lie down on a comfortable table and relax. Your provider inserts tiny needles into soft tissues throughout various parts of your body. They leave the needles in place for a period of time before removing them. 

Your sports medicine provider may manipulate the needles or use electric energy to enhance the results of your treatment. The entire session might last up to 60 minutes, but many treatments are shorter. Your specialist lets you know what to expect before each treatment.

What should I expect after acupuncture sessions?

After you undergo acupuncture at A+ Athlete Sports Medicine, you may feel better immediately, with additional improvements appearing over time as your body heals. Your specialist lets you know when to schedule your next session, which might be once a week or more often, to achieve optimal results.
