Acupuncture is frequently used by athletes to stay fit and healthy. Yesterday there was an article in New Jersey paper about how A.J. Burnett, the Yankee’s pitcher, credits acupuncture with his health and success.
This just makes sense. Even though acupuncture can effectively treat pain, it also works to calm the mind. And is great to treat issues of the shoulder and the rotator cuff that often plague pitchers.
