An athlete's health is more than just the absense of disease or injury, It's the ability of the athlete to achieve his or her full potential given biological, psychosocial, and emotional facets of the athletic activity — hence the need to use a multidisciplinary model of health care. The conservative approach to treating an injury, without drugs and surgury, is to:
Treat of the injury directly
Treat to improve the athlete's overall ability to return to optimal function and performance
Treat any underlying cause of the injury
A multidisiplinary model of treatment includes chiropractic manipulation, deep muscle massage, physical therapy, physiological therapy, rest, nutrition, controlled exercise, and acupuncture.
Acupuncture has a significant effect on pain and induces analgesia. It works on both acute and chronic tennis and golfer's elbow, acute and chronic low back and neck pain, muscular tightness, headache, and musculoskeletal pain syndromes. 4 Comfort and Joy provides the most common methods of affecting acupunture points and meridians, including the use of needles, moxibustion, electrical stimulation, and manual pressure.
Joy combines acupunture treatments with use of the MRS Mat, which realigns the athlete's body frequency pattern and adjusts their individual Bio-rhythm to the earth's natural magnetic frequencies. In athletes, magnetic resonnance stimulation strengthens the regeneration process and boosts performance.
