It is also possible to use acupuncture preventively for athletes to reduce the risk of injury.

Sports injuries

Many injuries occur in sports, a sports injury can occur suddenly due to wrong movement or trauma, but also gradually due to  for example overload or incorrect posture. In both situations acupuncture can reduce the pain, in most cases the complaint is already significantly reduced after the 1st treatment.
It is possible to combine acupuncture with physiotherapy or medication.

Wrong posture

In many professions, many of the same activities occur, so that the same muscles and joints are always strained.
