Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are a common side effect to being physically active. But don’t let an injury throw off your training schedule or prevent you from enjoying the sports you love. Naturopathic doctors like Dr. Michael Torreiter at Healing Path have many therapeutic tools to trigger the body’s innate ability to heal itself and help any active individual get back in the game.

  • Acupuncture can stimulate certain muscles and nerves to reduce pain and promote healing.  A series of 6 or 8 treatments can speed up the healing process, especially in those areas like joints and tendons that aren’t well oxygenated and can be slow to respond to conventional treatments.
  • Herbal remedies like white willow bark, curcumin (derived from turmeric) and boswellia are all traditional anti-inflammatory agents that have a long history of safe and effective use to manage and relieve pain from sports injuries.
  • Specially formulated nutritional supplements can promote tissue remodeling and repair for a faster recovery and a reduced risk of re-injury.

With these tools and more, naturopathic doctors have become an essential member of the healthcare team for casual to elite athlete alike.
