Steph and I had a blast at MEC Barrie Bikefest at Hardwood Hills. We treated the "normal" aches and pains of active people, and the first aid crew even referred a mountain biker who took a tumble on the trails. After an assessment and some acupuncture, he felt a lot better!
I love performing acupuncture for acute pain, since the change in symptoms can be so quick and dramatic! People are always amazed.
Acupuncture has a local analgesic effect, while changing the way that our nervous system senses pain. The needles also increase blood flow to the area, which helps with overall tissue repair and healing.
In the picture below, Steph is treating some hip pain, and I'm talking to some participants about what we do at Absolute Athlete Care.
