Sports Acupuncture

Specialized Acupuncture for Athletes

What Is Sports Acupuncture?

Sports acupuncture involves a deeper knowledge of sports medicine and Western medicine, as well as how to apply the correct treatment for common sports injuries. Acupuncture for athletes is much more than decreasing pain and restoring function. Working with athletes requires a deeper understanding of sport-specific demands to help the athlete return to sport safely, reduce the likelihood of re-injury, and further optimize performance.

Jack is the premier acupuncturist for athletes. His assessments are exceptionally comprehensive and specific, providing you with the best possible care and treatment.

Return to Sport after Injury

Jackupuncture is a unique and successful acupuncture clinic because of our ability to combine Eastern and Western medicine practices. We apply the principles of sports medicine and orthopedic assessment with the therapeutics of dry needling and dry needling with electrical stimulation to manage and reduce sports injuries. This combination is crucial in restoring adaptability and function so you move and feel better immediately.

Our patients regularly return to sport sooner than expected because our approach centers on using objective data from specialized tests and expert systems to identify and address their specific needs. We take a comprehensive view of your overall health, including the brain, giving you the chance to return to sport stronger, sooner, and better than before your injury.

We regularly observe remarkable outcomes in restoring strength and mobility, reducing pain and inflammation, increasing range of motion, and ultimately enhancing overall performance for athletes after injury and surgery. Acute and chronic injuries, even if unsuccessfully addressed elsewhere, often find their resolution with Jackupuncture’s help.

The “Sports Brain”

Return to Sport after Concussion

Coming up with the right plan of action for an athlete’s return to sport after a concussion is a major hurdle to overcome. Jack has personally experienced and overcome the results of multiple concussions from kickboxing, rugby, and cycling accidents, treating and restoring his brain’s function himself. This has fueled his love for seeking more knowledge and helping others succeed.

Concussion rehabilitation is so much more than just decreasing the symptoms. For athletes, it’s about being able to return to your sport, meet its specific demands, and perform the best you can while being able to minimize the risk of further head trauma or concussion.

Complete Athlete Care, from Brain to Toe!

 

Concussion and Sports Specialist

Acupuncture for athletes differs from acupuncture of traditional Chinese medicine. Musculoskeletal injuries like those often experienced in sport require more than addressing the meridians and energy flow commonly associated with Chinese medicine. To more effectively address the needs of orthopedic issues and sports injuries, sports acupuncture uses a modern understanding of neurophysiology and sports medicine principles. The focus is on addressing the mechanical dysfunctions that occur as a result of injury, and restoring the athlete to optimal performance. Combining the traditional and sports acupuncture approaches with concussion rehabilitation, we are able to address every aspect of sports performance and athlete care. Jackupuncture is the premier clinic for all athletes. Our assessments help us tailor treatment to each individual’s needs, providing you with the best possible care.

concussion treatment

Before PeakMIND, when I was tired, it was hard to stay focused or motivated in training. After starting PeakMIND with Jack, I had the focus to stay locked in even when I was tired. I felt more energized throughout the day and slept good even if I stayed up late.

 Max “Blessed” Holloway | UFC #1 Ranked Featherweight

Dr. Jack, thank you for being my healer.

Robert Kiyosaki | Investor, Motivational Speaker, and Author

Jack is Hawai'i's fighters' secret weapon! I usually get headaches after hard sparring and have to take headache medicine. After my first session I sparred hard two days in a row without a headache or needing meds.

Martin “The Spartan” Day | Rizin Bantamweight

I was suffering post concussion symptoms for over 6 months after getting T-boned by a reckless driver. After my time with Jack, I am so relieved that I can go a full week without medication and I am not constantly worried about triggering my symptoms. The improvements that I have made are amazing.

Laureen S.  | Post-Concussion Syndrome

Jack is very professional, educated, and has great energy in his craft. He made me feel very comfortable prior and during the process. Not only does he help heal, but also teaches how, where, and why we have pain/discomfort. Recovery has been great and the information Jack products is paramount to healing, prevention, and being fully functional/mobile.

Yancy Medeiros | Bellator MMA Lightweight

I had back pain for over a year. Thanks to Jackupuncture I’m able to rack pull 5 plates again without any lower back pain.

 

N.S. | NPC Bodybuilding Competitor

Jack is a healer and ultimate professional. After 4+ years of trying to recover from a shattered heel bone and 3 surgeries, I was looking for someone to get me back to running and doing the things I love. Within 3 sessions I was running again for the first time in 4 years without pain. Now I’m walking longer distances, able to be on my feet longer, and starting to get back into hiking.

Mike Morelli | Entrepreneur, Avid Outdoor Enthusiast

As a marathon runner and weightlifter, I sometimes struggle with aches and pains that pop up in training, which Jack is able to thoroughly and systematically assess and treat. I always walk out of a session feeling better and I have only had to take one unplanned rest day due to soreness or discomfort since starting our work together. Training 6 days/week, that is a pretty successful record!

Rebecca Jones | Marathon Runner, Weightlifter

The next day my groin pain was 100% gone. I tried to replicate the pain but can’t find it or feel the pain anymore. I press the muscle and it is not tender or sore anymore…
