Athletes worldwide, both elite and amateur, seek acupuncture for treatment of sports injury, prevention of injury, rest and recovery, and athletic enhancement.

Of course, you don't have to be an athlete to suffer from many of the above conditions, or fasciomusculoskeletal pain in general. If you are in pain, don't suffer in silence - give acupuncture a try.
