How do we hurt ourselves the most on bicycles?
The funny thing is, most the time we hurt ourselves on bicycles outside of any accident. Most bicycle injuries are caused by repetitive injuries. In fact, the top 6 bicycle injuries according to Active Magazine are:
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Patellar Tendonitis
- Broken Clavicle or Scaphoid
- Saddle Sores
- Lower Back Pain
- Neck Pain
Does bicycle accident acupuncture work for these ailments?
The short answer is yes, bicycle accident acupuncture works wonders for tough ailments, like tendon problems that give the western doctors so much trouble. That is a great place to start, with #1 and #2. Tendons do not get very much blood flow. Consequently, they heal slowly, painfully, and with great care. Acupuncture works beyond pain management in bicycle accident acupuncture, using the Balance Method. Acupuncture helps restore a healthy blood flow to your tendon to speed healing.
Acupuncture can assist you with any break, especially one as painful as your clavicle. Bicycle accident acupuncture can relieve your pain and help reduce inflammation.
Saddle sores are pressure sores, like bed sores. They open up and remain inflamed from lack of circulation due to pressure. Sometimes it is because a person cannot get up, other times, it is on their saddle from sitting on a bicycle for long periods of time. Acupuncture will increase blood flow to the area, to be sure. However, there have been studies conducted that show real improvement in pressure sores in 95.9% of patients using moxibustion, another technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
