SPORTS ACUPUNCTURE PROGRAM
The OPC Sports Acupuncture Program takes pride in using a modern painless acupuncture practice with electric stimulation allowing for a rapid increase in strength/ power, increased pain-free mobility, an increase in circulation and reduction in inflammation.
The OPC Sports Acupuncture Program is designed to assist athletes in reaching their true potential while mitigating the risk for injury. In order to accurately assess each athlete’s needs, thorough testing and evaluation is required through the following domains:
Reflexive muscle activation
Functional movement testing
Trophic tissue changes
A potential treatment strategy may involve placement of 2-6 acupuncture needles in specific locations reflecting the examination findings while transmitting a light electric stimulus
