Acupuncture Sports Medicine for Young Athletes
A Note from the Practitioner Regarding Young Athletes
As a parent of a young athlete, friend & practitioner to many, I have dedicated a great deal of time trying to understand the physical, mental and emotional needs of our young athletes. As a practitioner, standing on the sidelines watching the athletes push their growing bodies and then observe their dietary intake, I am stunned at how little is taught to help the young athlete better prepare for their practices and events. If an athlete spends so much time learning their skill, then it is equally as important for them to learn & understand the vehicle they are using to perform those skills-the body. Proper care for one’s health is critical for optimal performance, for any age.
