Sports Medicine Acupuncture (SMA) incorporates principles and techniques from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Western Sports Medicine to assess and treat the patient’s injury from a true integrated perspective. A Sports Medicine Acupuncture practitioner uses functional anatomy, range of motion testing, orthopedic examinations, manual muscle testing and palpation to identify the injured tissues. Postural and muscle imbalances are assessed through static and functional movements which guide the practitioner to understand how and why the injury occurred. This assessment is integrated into the TCM channel systems to diagnose and treat the excess (shi) and deficient (xu) conditions involving the channels and the injured tissue. In 2014, Dave completed the sports medicine acupuncture training program which is an extensive two year postgraduate program.
