Nashville Sports Acupuncture – Dry Needling for the Crossfit Athlete

Trigger Point Acupuncture: the Ultimate Mobility WOD

Mobility Work is a central feature of the Crossfit strength and conditioning program. Textured foam rollers, lacrosse balls and other pressure tools are utilized for reducing inflammation, improving range of motion and ungluing fascial adhesions. Mobility WODs are essential to athletic recovery, rehab and preparation for a challenging Crossfit workout. Sports & Trigger Point Acupuncture precisely localizes and releases obstructive muscular tension within the context of whole body movement patterns including signature Crossfit exercises such as Kettle Bell swings, Olympic lifts, Box jumps and Muscle ups.

Releasing Tension & improving Mobility

 Sports Acupuncture – Dry Needling is the best method for releasing Trigger Points and restoring pain free athletic mobility. This process involves finding the appropriate trigger point, which is usually a tender knot in a taut band of muscle, precisely inserting an acupuncture needle, applying an oscillating technique that causes a powerful micro-contraction that indicates the restoration of muscle length and movement potential. I describe this releasing phenomenon to my clients as similar to the spontaneous unwinding of a twisted rubber band. This process releases tension, improves circulation and initiates healing.
