For centuries, acupuncture has been used for the treatment of physical injuries. This practice is capable of addressing both acute trauma, such as bruising and swelling, as well as chronic conditions including lower back, shoulder, knee, and ankle pain often linked to sprains and strains.

During the 2012 and 2016 Summer Olympics, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) gained attention as professional athletes sought out acupuncturists to optimize their physical condition and performance. Various treatments like cupping, acupuncture, and Chinese herbology were used. Today, acupuncture has become one of the primary alternative modes of treatment and rehabilitation in sports medicine.
