Spring Newsletter – Acupuncture Awareness Week and Sports Injury

We hope this newsletter finds you in fine form. Spring is under way, the marathon is just a few weeks off and in Brighton & Hove there seems to be an awful lot of running going on!
This happily coincides with Acupuncture Awareness Week, which is being marked from the 7th – 12th March, and this year is highlighting traditional acupuncture for musculo-skeletal conditions.This is something we know a lot about at Hove Community Acupuncture; probably half the people we see in clinic are suffering with pain, a lot of which has been caused by injury.

The most common things we treat are back and neck pain, sciatica, tennis elbow and frozen shoulders and not forgetting carpal tunnel and achilles problems.

Acupuncture has a very powerful effect on repairing injuries – by simply focusing the bodies own healing ability on that area. This can ensure an area heals fully and quickly.

This is essential if you are an athlete or training for an event like the Brighton marathon. Running creates its own specific problems such as pulled muscles or damaged ligaments and tendons. Shin splints is also another common condition, along with calf or hamstring tightness.

Acupuncture can be used to treat problems that arise before a big event and afterwards to help recover.

If you have an injury, or are in training for the marathon, drop in to clinic for a treatment!

Our very own Rufus from Tuesday and Thursday clinic is running the Brighton Marathon for Save the Children. We are very proud of him.
