Akupunktur för vriststabilitet

New research reveals that acupuncture is effective for treating athletes with functional ankle instability. The investigators showed that electroacupuncture applied to ST41 (Jiexi), UB60 (Kunlun), GB40 (Qixu) and Ashi points not only functionally improved ankle stability but also significantly increased proprioception. In a comparison with physiotherapy, the investigators discovered that the acupuncture study group showed greater improvement than the conventional physiotherapy group.


Acupuncture for AnklesChronic ankle instability is typically caused by sprains that have damaged the ligaments. This results in a decrease in proprioception, a person’s ability to sense relative bodily positions and the relative strength applied to parts of the body. As a result, ankle instability affects balance and gait. This may lead to susceptibility to further injury. The researchers concluded that electroacupuncture improves proprioception for athletes with functional ankle instability and that electroacupuncture achieves greater clinical results than conventional physiotherapy.
