You don’t have to be an athlete to suffer from a “sports” injury.
I see folks all the time who have sprains, strains, and muscle pains whose only “sport” experience is watching the New England Patriots game on TV every Sunday.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how you got the injury… what matters is it hurts like heck and is keeping you from doing the things you love.
If you visit a mainstream doc, he’ll inject you with some steroids and send you on your way.
That’s NOT a solution… that’s a recipe for more pain and weakness!
It’s time for a new approach, folks – one that WORKS.
Fortunately, a new report is pointing us in the right direction…
Injured? Try these natural alternatives for recovery
We’ve heard a lot about how injuries are par for the course among NFL players and other professional athletes.
But have you ever wondered how these athletes are able to recover so quickly?
A new report is shedding light on how several NFL teams are using acupuncture and cupping as a natural form of medicine to get players back on the field faster.
Acupuncture is a 3,000-year-old technique used in Chinese medicine for healing and pain relief.
And for NFL players, this needle technique can be reactive (treating an injury) or proactive (preventing an injury).
Many players combine acupuncture therapy with cupping – the practice of applying glass or plastic cups and suction to different areas of the body.
The vacuum effect increases circulation, helps the buildup of lactic acid, and causes soreness and pain to vanish.
So basically, unlike the drugs mainstream docs prescribe, acupuncture and cupping get to the root of the injury and fix the system that is causing the pain.
In fact, a previous study found athletes who received acupuncture for shin pain experienced 90 percent pain relief and used 60 percent less medication.
Despite these stunning results, many mainstream and even alternative doctors have been slow to accept and embrace these natural therapies.
Fortunately, there are docs like myself out there who use these methods in their practice.
And if I can get athletes playing brutal sports back onto the field, imagine what acupuncture and cupping can do for YOU.

You may also find it offered by certain massage therapists.
