How It Works
When you injure yourself playing sports the pain is caused by Qi stagnation in the channels. Acupuncture gets the Qi moving again. This not only relieves pain, but boosts your healing capacity so you get better faster.
For example, sprinters can injure their hamstrings, causing spasms and pain. Acupuncture at points BL36 and BL37 open the blocked channel, resolve pain and speed healing. The same holds true for low back strain, shoulder rotator cuff injuries, hip pain and foot pain. No matter where the injury, acupuncture resolves pain and speeds the healing process.
While many injuries heal on their own in time, some do not. They linger for months. Piriformis syndrome is one of these conditions. The piriformis is a muscle in the hip. When in spasm, it presses against the sciatic nerve, sending pain down the leg. Acupuncture releases this spasm. It helps return the injured piriformis to normal much quicker than it could on it’s own.
Some neck and hamstring injuries also follow this pattern, stubbornly refusing to heal without intervention. In these cases, acupuncture plays an important role to healing these injuries.

What our Clients are Saying
I’m a runner and had been dealing with Achilles tendinitis for over a year. The doctor said I would have to have surgery eventually so I was just dealing with the pain and biding my time. Then a friend suggested acupuncture and recommended Raleigh Acupuncture as specializing in Achilles issues. I made and appointment and was impressed from the very beginning. Their evaluation was very thorough and they explained everything that acupuncture could do.
The treatments were comfortable, and more importantly, they eased my pain significantly. After six treatments I was running without any Achilles pain! I’ve totally put the idea of surgery out of my mind since I’m running without pain again. Anyone who has Achilles issues should speak with Raleigh Acupuncture. They can definitely help you.
I’m a semi-professional weight lifter. I never had a problem until my hip went out doing squats. The pain was tremendous, like a sharp nerve pain down the back of my leg into the calf. It had sidelined me for two months while I tried unsuccessfully to work out the pain. Then a buddy suggested acupuncture. He had a similar hip pain and got relief at Raleigh Acupuncture. I went there and got treated. They told me to stop stretching until the injury was healed. I followed their instructions and got half a dozen treatments. The pain started easing after the first few treatments. I continued for another 6 treatments and was totally cured. I was able to get back to lifting with no residual effects of the injury. I’ve recommended this practice to a number of friends since that time and they all have had good experiences.
