Ch a p t er Human Brain Plasticity, Sports, and Sports Injuries This chapter is a brief review of some basic brainbody interactions and neural processes that occur during physical exercise and training. Understanding this interaction is essential for designing training programs, preventing potential sports injuries, and assisting rehabilitation by using integrative medical procedures. The aim of this review is to understand why dry needling is used and how it can benefit athletes by reducing physiologic stress during the different phases of their sports activities.

Nevertheless, there are limits to how far the skeletal framework can sustain internal and external stress. It is not uncommon that a sudden powerful muscle contraction or a repeated external force can cause bone fracture. One of the purposes of dry needling acupuncture therapy is to lower the stress in muscles so that they can absorb more force during sporting activity and thereby prevent or reduce stress-related injuries to the musculoskeletal system. GENERAL REVIEW OF THE MECHANICS OF MAJOR HUMAN JOINTS Knowledge of the mechanical torques operating at major joints helps clinicians understand how stress is distributed in joints and muscles and thereby how to restore musculoskeletal balance and treat soft tissue dysfunction.

They involve strenuous, repetitive physical and psychologic training assisted by modern equipment. Professional athletes (and some amateurs) are always preparing for competition. In many cases, modern sports training is pushing human systems to their physiologic limits. Thus, because of the intimate brain-body interaction, understanding the brain in sports is of utmost importance. It is a twoway process in that the behavior of the athlete modifies the brain and the brain modifies behavior. There is also interaction between genetic makeup and behavior.
