    Specialty Unit in Sports Injury

    Chi Wellness Clinic has developed a comprehensive program for treating sports injuries. We have treated many competitive athletes at the college and professional levels. They include former Boston College and Celtics player Dana Barros (point guard), track and field track athletes and hockey players from Boston University, Boston College and Harvard University, football players from Northeastern University, and basketball players from other local colleges.

    Recently, we began to focus on sports injuries occurring among amateur athletes and exercise enthusiasts, from teenagers to baby boomers. Thanks to valuable feedback from our baby boomer patients (ages 40 - 65), we have gained unique insights into providing effective and cost-effective treatments. By understanding sports injuries that occur during youth, but manifest at the ages of 40 - 65, we have strengthened our long-term and holistic treatment of physical and functional impairments, placing more weight on patients' ability to prevent injuries.

    The principle of Chi Wellness holistic treatment program is a balance between high level performance and sustainable enhancement of health and wellness. The objective of treatment is to mobilize the body's healing capacity to repair soft tissue injuries on an on-going basis. Our program consists of four aspects:

    • To detect muscular tension (including tendons) and stiff joints from head to toe;
    • To use physical manipulation (Tuina, stretching, acupuncture) to loosen up muscles, as well as joints, and achieve sustainable relaxation throughout the entire body. As a result of the sustainable relaxation, the blood and chi circulation increase and heal injuries. Herbal remedies are also used for old injuries.
    • To rehabilitate the selective strength of weakened muscles, the muscular balance (collective strength) of the entire body, the even weight bearing of the body, motor coordination and balance of the body.
    • To enhance sports performance and reduce wear and tear during work outs using Chi Wellness self-care methods including:
      • Listening to tension in the body
      • Self massage
      • Deep Stretching
      • Conditional strengthening
      • Relaxing the joints
      • Tai Chi movements and mental relaxation (meditation)

    The endpoint of Chi Wellness treatment is to enable patients to use their instinctual abilities to prevent sports injuries and to live active, balanced and relaxing lives. As a result, they can perform their sports consistently, powerfully and sustainably, without suffering aches and pains later on.
