How Denver Athletes Can Improve Performance with Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine

As athletes around the globe search for ways to improve their performance and gain a competitive edge against the competition, many are finding that one ancient practice is helping to give them the push they need while playing the sports they love. Acupuncture has been shown in recent studies to provide performance enhancement to athletes taking part in various sports. Within this blog, we’ll focus on two unique advantages for Denver athletes in undergoing a regimen of acupuncture in a local clinic.


  1. Acupuncture Improves Muscle Relaxation
  2. For those that suffer from stiff muscles, the pain can truly be detrimental to sporting performance, as they are unable to achieve the flexibility to truly extend their body to the peak of its abilities. Acupuncture works to engage the nervous system and allow muscles within core groups in the arms, legs and back to relax, which then allows the athlete to better extend their body and build strength.


  3. Acupuncture Improves Training Results
  4. Many Denver athletes who undergo a course of acupuncture have found that they have better recovery times after exerting themselves, either during competitive sports or training. This improved recovery ability means that skills learned during training can be practiced more often and for longer, more sustained periods of time without adversely affecting the body.


    By utilizing the inherent advantages of a sports medicine program carried out by Healing Traditions Oriental Medicine & Wellness Sports Medicine Specialists, athletes can meet their performance goals and better manage their body's core fitness requirements. Book a consultation with a professional today to see how this ancient medical technique can provide the boost required for superior performance.
