Acupuncture for sports injuries – how does it help?

Sports acupuncture treatment starts with a general functional assessment and a more detailed assessment of the injured or problem area. One of the major problems the assessment is trying to uncover is muscular inhibition. Musculature that is found to be inhibited is treated with specialized electroacupuncture to restore full muscle function. Nerve supply is also stimulated, including spinal nerves. Soft tissue techniques such as myofascial and Graston style treatments are also incorporated for areas of muscular tightness, spasm or dysfunction.

Ken Ansell is one of only a few practitioners in Western Canada offering specialized sports acupuncture in Regina and regularly has patients travel from other cities and Provinces to receive this acupuncture treatment.
