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.

Emily helped me combat some pretty deep depression and anxiety yesterday. I had come to my wits end and western med was no longer helping me. She recommended herbs that are significantly decreasing the debilitating mental health symptoms I was experiencing and her treatment of acupuncture/reiki helped calm my nervous system. I’m noticing this all in less than 24 hrs, wow! THANK YOU 🙏

I received a healing treatment from Crystal yesterday and the day before— acupuncture and cupping, along with ear seeds. She was so attentive and deeply caring for my personal needs and desires. I genuinely cannot wait to go back. Truly, it is honorable they are a non-profit organization for all the hard work and hours they put in. I will always go back. Thanks to the hardworking (shen) hands of Crystal.

Brought in my 15 year old who was suffering from a sports related back injury. She has had two appointments (acupuncture and acupuncture with cupping) and has been experiencing good results. The healthcare team is extremely knowledgeable and comforting. They explain everything they are doing and ensure you are comfortable with every step. Would definitely recommend.

I've been to other acupuncturists before, and Emily @ Lakewood did a fantastic job - way better than the others I've been to. Very thorough on intake, learning what to focus, and overall creating a great space. Thanks so much!

Amazing practitioners who are dedicated to serving the community with powerful healing! Each session is greeted with compassion and incredible care. I came to the office experiencing a lot of pain in my back and neck. The day after receiving Tuina bodywork and Acupuncture, my pain was gone. I am so very grateful. Thank you!!
