IS IT SOCCER OR FOOTBALL?

While the Women’s World Cup is taking place in France, we’re here in Chicago watching because in all likelihood, it’s raining.

Rain can not only mess with your game, it can cause all sorts of sports injuries. Sprains, strains, muscle tears, ACL tears, and Achille’s tendon ruptures to name a few. This is why most pro and national teams have an acupuncturist on staff, or at least on call.

Treating injuries without surgery or drugs means faster healing times, and more complete healing. Acupuncture reduces the inflammation and pain caused by an injury, or repair surgery, and speeds up healing to get players back on the field

Here’s the Short List of conditions Acupuncture can treat. (the long list)

NatureMed Acupuncture

NatureMed Acupuncture was formed by Oleg Rivkin, who has experience in both Western and Eastern treatments. It is through this lens he concluded that when possible, pharmaceutical-free treatment has the best curative powers for most of the pain and symptoms people express.
