Acupuncture for Sports Performance Enhancement

The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research has published a review article saying that acupuncture enhances sports performance in resistance and endurance sports.

Researchers found the use of acupuncture in resistance and endurance sports activities tended to increase muscular strength and power. Acupuncture also seemed to improve the haemodynamic parameters of endurance athletes (source: Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, PubMed).
