Sports Medicine

I have been treating both professional athletes and weekend warriors for years.  I continuously take advanced doctoral level courses in Sports Medicine Acupuncture.  This on-going training in the latest techniques for treating sports injuries sets me apart from the majority of acupuncturists in New York City.  My years in the ring fighting as a full combat Muay Thai kick-boxer has given me firsthand experience in breaks, fractures, tears, strains, dislocations and other sports injuries – be it my own or those I have treated over the years.

As I have said to both my pros and amateurs, “there is nothing I am doing to you that I haven’t done to myself or have had done on me (always said with a laugh and a smile).”  I offer my patients a complete treatment program from evaluation of x-rays and MRI reports to physical assessment, evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, manual modalities and muscle retraining and reorientation in addition to acupuncture, low level laser and cupping.

Integrative Approach and Treatment

I work closely with many orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, neurologists, physical therapists and osteopaths here in New York City to create an integrative approach and treatment program to ensure a complete resolution to your medical condition, which will help you to train more efficiently and effectively to optimize performance, decrease risk of injury, and accelerate your recovery time.

Some sports-related conditions I treat are:

  • Back Pain
  • Overuse Injuries
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Shoulder Arm, Elbow, Wrist and Hand Injuries
  • Hip, Leg, Knee, Lower Leg, Ankle and Foot Injuries
  • Radiculopathies and Neuropathies
  • Stress Fractures and Simple Fractures
  • Dancer’s Injuries
  • MCL & ACL Tears
  • Compartment Syndrome
  • Sprains & Strains
  • Ligamentous Tears
