Lifewave: Professional Athletes Turning to Acupuncture

In the 2009 baseball season, New York Yankees pitcher A.J. Burnett played an integral role in his team’s rise to a World Series Championship, and did so without missing a single inning due to injury. For an athlete whose reputation for landing on the injured list had (until then) overshadowed his considerable talent, this was remarkable. Throughout this career, Burnett suffered from a ruptured ligament in his thumb, a bone bruise, a stress fracture in his right foot, a right shoulder strain, and a host of other injuries that could derail a pitcher’s career. That all changed when Burnett discovered acupuncture. He credits the therapy with helping him stay healthy. Burnett states, “I found that I responded really well to the acupuncture, how that treated my body and my nerves, and the release of stress.”
The trend isn’t a new one. The use of acupuncture in professional sports has been growing for a while now. For instance, National Basketball Association (NBA) stars Yao Ming and Allan Houston have both reported turning to acupuncture treatment to help recover from injuries, as have National Football Association (NFL) standouts Steve Young and Jerry Rice. Many professional sports teams, (including the Yankees) now employ a staff acupuncturist to help them gain a competitive advantage.
Because LifeWave patches stimulate acupuncture points, they can serve the needs of athletes looking to gain the health benefits of acupuncture treatment. For instance, in the 2010 Olympics, a number of athletes from around the world incorporated LifeWave patches into their training programs, both to help them recover and to provide an edge during competition.
