Sports Acupuncture

With Motor Point Electrical Stimulation

Acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years to treat a plethora of conditions ranging from all types of pain to fertility to digestive disorders to neurological dysfunction. Recently, acupuncturists have made great strides in combining acupuncture with new technologies, such as electrical stimulation, to increase the efficacy of acupuncture. One of the most compelling examples of this is the use of acupuncture with or without electricity to stimulate a muscle's motor nerve to “retrain neuromuscular function lost due to muscle inhibition following injury or surgery.” (1)

The motor point is where the motor nerve innervates the muscle, and if functioning properly, causes the muscle to contract when engaged. The “treatment of a specific motor point, found in the central aspect of the muscle where the motor nerve enters the muscle, has the greatest influence on electrical activity and, as a result, the greatest impact on pain.” (1) 

How it works

Motor Point eStim is a muscle-specific electrical stimulation treatment where the injured muscles are isolated, needled into the motor point—where the nerves that control contraction innervate the muscle—, and stimulated with an electrical current to cause the muscles to jump in rhythmic contractions and then relax. Motor point stimulation releases tight muscles and knots, strengthens the injured muscle, increases range of motion, and reduces pain.
