Day Tripper – Acupuncture Can Aid in Ataxia (Lack of Coordination)

Improve Flexibility and Coordination with Acupuncture

Improve Flexibility and Coordination with Acupuncture

Did you know that acupuncture can increase your coordination? Your
cerebellum, located at the back of your brain, integrates your sensory
perception and muscle control. Professional athletes typically have
high-functioning cerebellums. If damage occurs to the cerebellum,
possibly through stroke, multiple sclerosis, infection or disease,
loss of muscle coordination (ataxia) results. A person may experience
ataxia as difficulty in walking, poor balance, difficulty in distance
perception, tendency to fall, difficulty in sports performance and/or
slurring of speech.

Medical practitioners used to think that nerve cells didn’t regenerate
or replace themselves. Now they know that nerve cells can regenerate
and heal. Acupuncture facilitates this healing. Very specific trigger
points restore circulation and allow the body to heal and replace the
neurons that are essential in maintaining sensory perception and
muscle control.
