Repetitive strain injuries, or injuries which result from repeated motion, typically respond very well to acupuncture, especially when pain management therapy is started early. The goal in treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis Elbow, Golfer’s Elbow, and other common repetitive strain injuries is to stop the inflammatory process occurring in and around the overused tendons. In addition to acupuncture and herbs, allowing the area to rest is mandatory to produce maximum pain relief. Patients may also need to wear a support to protect the area from aggravation during recovery.
Acupuncture is a great form of sports medicine, and pain associated with running such as shin splints, and plantar fasciitis can be successfully treated and managed with acupuncture.
