One of the best things to treat with Chinese medicine is acute injury. I like treating this because it works so well and quickly. In my experience acupuncture can speed the healing of acute injury and pain to a great degree. If possible we will also do some light cupping in the area. Plus we have a great herbal formulation called Traumanex that continues to speed up the healing between treatments. Treating acute injury is one of the main reasons Olympic teams will have acupuncturists traveling with them. Most people remember the famous cupping of Michael Phelps in the last summer Olympics but most people didn't see the pictures of him getting acupuncture as well.
