A sport is an activity where one more often than not plays to win. As in most sports, tennis and golf players take care and condition their body to better compete and obtain an edge over their competitors. No matter what kind of equipments you use, whether they are the most expensive, top of the line golf clubs or tennis rackets, if stiffness and pain is plaguing your body, these equipments will be of little use to you.
It is very interesting to note that acupuncture Maitland can greatly improve your tennis or golf game to a higher level. In what ways can acupuncture do that? Well, firstly, this ancient Chinese remedy can treat body ailments and pain and that includes golfer’s elbow and tennis elbow. Golfer’s elbow and tennis elbow are the result of tedious overuse of the flexor and extensor muscles of the elbow. These conditions are conventionally treated with steroid injections or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), which brings about harmful side effects to the body or by surgery, which is rather quite invasive and yields unsatisfactory results.
Dozens of studies have been performed proving the efficacy of acupuncture in the treatment of back pain. At least 33 researchers in the UK acknowledged acupuncture as a very good way to relieve and treat lower back pain with effects that lasts considerably longer than other conventional treatments.
Here are some of the benefits tennis and golf players can receive from acupuncture:
• Muscle spasms are relaxed.
• The body is stimulated to produce and release natural steroids that remove inflammation.
• Acupuncture helps release endorphins which take away pain.
• Blood circulation improves and facilitates healing.
• It soothes irritated nerves.
• Your mood is calmed and relaxed.
• It improves memory function.
• It regulates body functions and hormones.
• Stress is taken away and sleep is improved.
• It boosts the immune system.
• It greatly elevates your performance on the golf course court or on the tennis court.
Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine have been around for 5,000 years. Throughout the millennia acupuncture has helped several billions of people with various kinds of health problems. It is a natural and safe treatment practiced in China and other parts of the Orient to aid the body in the path to self-recovery. Unlike steroid injections and drugs, the use of acupuncture does not cause side effects or toxicity. The acupuncture needles used are as thin as human hair and are inserted just enough not to break the skin. Hence, it is a relatively painless treatment. A licensed and well-trained acupuncturist stimulates the body’s self-healing abilities and balances and regulates body functions to help the body remedy the root cause of one’s health problem, not merely to relieve the symptoms.
