From the Chinese medical point of view, human body is not only formed of mechanic parts, but it’s an energetic collection of functions. We have the Life Energy within us, which is known as Qi. If a person has an injury, around the injured area the flow of energy becomes disrupted, causing pain and stagnation. The hamstring strain is at the level of muscles and tendons, with
stagnation of the Qi and blood in channels and collaterals. The main purpose of doing this work is to show the positive results and effects of acupuncture. In the research are included 8 professional athletes in different sports, male and female, on age
