Athletic Career Longevity

At South Jersey Sports Acupuncture, the focus is on the factors that we can control to promote career longevity in athletes. Prevention is the best medicine.

Have a Longer Career With Acupuncture

Neurofunctional acupuncture and manual medicine help to ensure that the body is functioning and adapting to stress at its highest level.  Increased athleticism equals decreased risk for injury.

Trauma to a joint can have far reaching consequences. Every muscle that moves the affected joint can become compromised. When the function of these muscles becomes reduced, other muscles in the body can be forced to compensate. The accumulation of compensations robs the body of the ability to perform with optimal athleticism. Balance is compromised. Power output is reduced.

Avoiding Injuries

Injuries have to be the number one factor in determining athletic career longevity. Sports injury can happen suddenly or accumulate over time. Accidents, trauma, overuse and misuse are a few ways that an athlete can become injured.

Unfortunately, accidents happen and sometimes trauma can’t be avoided. In these cases, the best rehabilitation possible is probably the best solution.

By far, injury prevention and performance optimization is the best route to take to avoid injuries.

Neurofunctional acupuncture restores:

  • Neuromotor Inhibition
  • Balance and Proprioception
  • Blood perfusion to the affected area
