Acupuncture for runners in Portland, Oregon
You are a runner, and you want to be able to Keep. On. Running.
You don’t have the patience to be sidelined by injury — not when running is your therapist, your trainer, your sleeping pill, and your superpower all tied into one.
The thought of giving up running or taking time off to deal with injury is painful. Almost as painful as the injury that is holding you up.
Hood-to-Coast time is quickly approaching. After that, it will be another race, another milestone, another event. It’s never too late to add a little more support to your toolbox. I’ve had patients come in for their first ever acupuncture treatment the day before a race. While it’s ideal to start a bit sooner, anytime you come in for treatment is one more chance to feel your best when your feet hit the ground.
Acupuncture Helps Recovery and Performance
Acupuncture is one of the fastest ways to get on the road to recovery, and to help you improve your performance. It can address your minor strains or irritations, and speed healing times for your biggest sprains.
Chronic knee pain acting up? No problem— we’ve got you covered.
Achilles problems threatening to derail your next race? Come in for a few sessions and see how much better you feel.
Tight calves causing issues? We’ll release those muscles by activating their motor points so that they are no longer messing with your training schedule.
Need post-race recovery so you can get back in gear faster? We can do that, too.
How Acupuncture Helps Runners
Acupuncture is a master tool for reducing inflammation by calling on your beta-endorphins — your body’s most powerful natural pain killers — to soothe your pain. It also dramatically increases blood flow to injured or inflamed areas, thereby speeding healing and recovery time.
Acupuncture is one of the most effective and least invasive ways to take care of the physical problems that are keeping you from running.
The sooner you start care, the sooner you’ll be back on the road/trail/track. Offering convenient online scheduling so you can make your appointments anytime, day or night. Don’t wait — relief is right around the corner.
