Traditional acupuncture is often used along with Trigger Point work to expedite the healing process. Traditional Acupuncture treats some of the areas away from the injury and, for centuries, it has been one of the most respected treatments for sports injuries. Together, these methods are a more powerful treatment.
Sports Acupuncture of New York and Connecticut
(Acupuncture & Dry Needling)
We treat sports injuries and back and neck pain. That’s ALL that we do. It is not something we do occasionally between treating other problems.
“Five days a week for twenty five years we have been treating athletes, dancers, and those who need their body to be in great shape to perform at their best. We know what your problem is and have treated it hundreds of times.
– Bruce Mandelbaum, L.Ac., LMT
Trigger Points in the muscles are the primary cause of most muscular injuries. You DO have them-we eliminate them-you go back your activity injury free and ready to perform at your best. It’s our area of expertise having successfully treated over forty thousand patients over our thirty years in practice.
Call with any questions about this work.
We use Deep Tissue Sports massage for a few minutes and sometimes more as a way to loosen up the affected area before the dry needling. Sometimes the injury will feel better even before we get to the dry needling. We want to utilize everything at our disposal to make sure that when you get out of bed the next day you KNOW you were worked on.

As you can see-all of our work is hands on from the time you enter the treatment room till you leave.
