What is Sports Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of the most commonly used therapies among the world’s leading athletes. But this does not imply that you have to be a pro athlete to enjoy the benefits of acupuncture. Whether you are a triathlete, a diehard endurance athlete, gym rat, devoted yogi, or a crossfit athlete, acupuncture can improve your performance by revitalizing your general health.

For acupuncture to be successful, it is necessary that your acupuncturist must be properly trained and also specializes in sports injury and recovery. Well you don’t have to worry; not only does Dr. Scott Richardson DAOM specialize in Sports Injury and Recovery, he is an athlete himself!  He can provide the best acupuncture services in Denver to athletes.


How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture gained popularity in the US in the early 1970’s. People seem to view it as a “New Age” medicine but it has been around longer than any other medical practiced used today. Also, lets be clear, the Chinese word “Qi” does not mean energy! This is a medical system that has very specific diagnosis criteria which requires specific treatment plans and protocols. It is a 4 year graduate level program with third party examination to demonstrate competency. Despite how people may choose to utilize it in their own practice, Acupuncture is a medical system that has more than 2000 years of empirical evidence. The treatment protocols that have repeatable results among different providers in different cultures and is accepted by the NIH and WHO.

Scott Richardson is an excellent acupuncturist! He treated several of my physical ailments which resulted in complete and instant relief. I would recommend him to anyone experiencing chronic pain!

I have been seeing Dr. Scott Richardson for over 2 years almost weekly. He has been instrumental in reducing my headaches and assisting me with healthy digestion. He has also helped me heal various injuries I've had.

Dr. Richardson is not only a great acupuncturist, but an incredible man as well! My wife has been battling with back/neck spasms for over a year, and Dr. Richardson is the only one who listens and understands how to help.

I saw Dr. Scott after I broke my 5th metatarsal bone and while I was still in my walker boot. The treatment was AWESOME! I had less swelling and bruising the next day and was able to put more weight on my foot without pain.
