Acupuncture for tendon issue. How many treatments?

Postby ellalee » Thu Jun 09, 2016 10:34 am

Per my sports doc's advice, I'm undergoing acupuncture treatment for a lower leg tendonitis due to running/overuse. Anyone have any experience using acupuncture on Achilles issues? How many treatments does it take to see any relief?

I am a runner and my chiropractor has used acupuncture to help me through some of my injuries. Depending on how serious your injury is, it may only take a couple of treatments to help.

Acupuncture basically increases blood flow to the injured area to accelerate healing. Your body still needs time to fully recover and heal but the acupuncture helps it along.

I'm a believer in it!
