Can acupuncture help with regaining muscle mass after a chronic injury?

Acupuncture can assist in the process of regaining muscle mass after injury. Muscles are live tissue and as such, they respond to environmental demand. Regular increase in load to a particular muscle will trigger the growth and therefore its size, whilst a decrease in training or total inactivity will do the exact opposite.

Training after long-term injury may initially cause muscular pain, which acupuncture can pacify. This allows further training, which, as capability and stamina increase may result in further muscular discomfort, which the next acupuncture session will address, and so on. In other words, regular acupuncture treatments will support a regular, gradual increase in training, increasing muscle mass and performance.
