Acupuncture Case study – Weightlifter with forearm pain

This patient is a 35 year old Man from Piscataway NJ. He is a decade-long wieghtlifter but not over the top with seriousness. He lifts to keep his form and for fitness.

He came to me with pain in the muscles of his right forearm. This pain was affecting his lifting routine.

I did a triggerpoint treatment on his forearm muscles and he was a good responder (high twitching). After three treatments, his pain was down “90%” and he had resumed the exercises that he was unable to do.
