Health Maintenance and Enhancement:
While acupuncture is most often used for treating specific conditions, experts contend that regular visits are important for preventative health as well. Acupuncture works by balancing energy in the body. Everything from sleeping too little, eating a greasy meal, or taking stressful meetings at work can throw that energy off. When these things happen infrequently our bodies are able to bounce back easily, but if stressors happen repeatedly over a long period of time, our energy begins to shift into an unhealthy pattern. Acupuncture at Rehabilitation Chinese Medicine of Orlando in Winter Park can correct those imbalances before they grow into a larger pattern of disease.
Sports Performance Enhancement:
In enhancing sports performance, acupuncture positively effects the autonomic nervous system which controls all our bodily functions not under conscious control-heart rate and stroke volume, breathing rate and depth, digestion, sweating, etc. Acupuncture reduces fright or fight mechanism (stress) and promote relaxation and recovery.
Some acupuncture points increase the release of dopamine and produce a runners high.
Benefits of Acupuncture in Winter Park FL
Acupuncture enables tissues to relax and heal after strenuous exercise. Acupuncture can reduce fatigue and pain. This can reduce recovery time from exertion.
Proprioception is the body’s ability to know where its various part (limbs, etc) exist in space. It is absolutely essential for any and all physical activity, from eating and writing to shooting a jump shot or running cross country. Injuries affect the body’s proprioception, creating an imbalance. Acupuncture can balance and reset proprioception, creating a more accurate sense of where one is in space.
Acupuncture treatments at Rehabilitation Chinese Medicine of Orlando in Winter Park causes blood vessels to open up in the arteries and increase the flow of blood to the heart and organs, which improves blood circulation and cardiovascular wellbeing. Fatigue, inflammation, strain, tightness, and soreness are eased when blood flow is increased in the body. “Acupuncture is one of the quickest ways to restore muscle balance,” Matthew Callison said. “When acupuncture is used at specific sites, the muscle spindles are reset, and then that balance is reawakened.”
Western medical research has looked into the mechanisms of acupunctures effectiveness.
The mechanisms of how and why acupuncture works are profound, but also varied. For instance, some points are located at trigger points in the muscles. These often-painful areas get relief when they are massaged, or in acupuncture’s case, needled. Some of the important points are at motor points, which is where the nerve innervates the muscle. Acupuncture points can also be found at other significant anatomical sites, like the nerve-rich areas of tendons and their attachment to the bones.
These sites would point to the effectiveness of acupuncture being mediated through the nervous and musculoskeletal system. Yet other points have been shown to increase white blood cells to help the immune system, and some enhance neurotransmitters that give many patients a post treatment “high.” Or, there is the most easy-to-understand effect of an acupuncture treatment: when you are experiencing an inflammation of a tendon or a slight strain of a muscle, the acupuncturist may insert a needle at or near the site of injury. The stimulation increases microcirculation in the area, thus increasing the blood to the tissues that are injured. This may assist in the healing of the problem – sometimes noticeably faster!
