Mechanical stimulation shown to repair muscleby Thomas E. Turpen, MS, R.Ac. on 05/31/16
Mechanical stimulation shown to repair muscle. Although this study did not show the various methods we use in acupuncture, it is still very relevant to what we do. For example, there are particular ways to treat a very acute muscle strain; and when done appropriately significantly speed up healing. Also, needling stimulates mechanoreceptors in the fascia, which wrap every muscle, organ, etc. Among other things, this significantly changes the blood flow dynamics in the area being treated.
