Sports Performance Optimization

Sports Performance Optimization

South Jersey Sports Acupuncture provides effective treatments for sports performance optimization, whether you’re a beginner, a pro, or somewhere in between.


Athleticism requires balance, stability, coordinated movement, speed, power, and the ability to access all of these things through full ranges of motion. At the core of athleticism is balance and stability. Without balance and stability, speed, power and agility can’t be fully realized.

The brain is constantly monitoring the position and movement of the body and all of its parts. It does this through receptors in the muscles and joints. This is called proprioception. Muscles that are tight, weak, or injured create and send abnormal signals to the brain. These abnormal signals will have an effect on balance and proprioception. When balance and proprioception are “off,” the brain has fewer resources to devote to athletic performance. A person feels unstable and is more worried about balance and coordination than actually performing the task at hand.

How Does Acupuncture Help?

Using neurofunctional acupuncture, we assess your body to find out what’s working optimally and what isn’t. Neurofunctional acupuncture releases any tightness that’s holding you back. It will also normalize signals between your body and brain to re-establish communication and coordination in the body. By creating balance with electro-acupuncture and manual myofascial techniques, maximum performance can be regained. When the body is functioning in a balanced and coordinated way, it allows maximum adaptability and the chances of getting injured are greatly reduced.

Sports acupuncture is an effective way to heal faster following sports injuries. It can serve in both sports injury prevention and rehabilitation. Contact South Jersey Sports Acupuncture to learn more or schedule an appointment to get started now!
