Injuries caused by participat in athletic activities are common among both recreational and professional athletes. While acupuncture techniques have been used in China and Hong Kong for a long time as an alternative or supplementary treatment (Fong, 2008), they are also now being used in the West. Studies carried out by Western scientists confirm findings of Chinese scientists that acupuncture is an effective treatment. Acupuncture is used alongside mainstream western medical and physiotherapy techniques by national-level professional teams and athletes in the Football Premiership League (Stacey R., 1999), National Football League (Bishop, 2010), and the National Basketball Association (Sfara, 2013).
