Acupuncture Gets College Basketball Player Back on the Court
Well known Colorado University Basketball player Jeremy Adams spent much of the season unable to play for long periods of time due to problems with the patella tendons of both his knees. This excerpt from the Denver Post praises the results Jeremy has had since starting acupuncture treatment a month ago.
Thanks to acupuncture, Adams is back in the game and looking forward to helping CU in the NCAA Tournament on Friday against Illinois in Austin, Texas. He began the procedure on his knees a month ago and the treatments have worked wonders. A diabetic, Adams has averaged 19 minutes over the past seven games, including a season-high 27 minutes at Stanford when the Mississippi native supplied eight points and four rebounds in an important road victory.
CU basketball trainer Trae Tashiro recommended acupuncture to Adams after other treatments failed to relieve the pain.
“At first, I didn’t want to do it,” Adams said. “But then I thought I’d give it a try. The day after I had the acupuncture done, I dunked (in practice) for the first time in a couple of months. My knees feel a lot better and I’m able to do more things out there.”
