At present, a large number of data or research results have proved that after a cycle of electroacupuncture at specific acupoints and hand acupuncture at specific acupoints, etc., not only can increase the muscle strength on the acupuncture side, but also improve the non-acupuncture or The strength of the muscles on the untrained side. This is the cross migration of muscle strength training. This phenomenon can occur in the upper limb muscles of the human body, and it can also occur in the lower limb muscles. With the deepening of various studies, this phenomenon has been used in the clinical practice of rehabilitation treatment and has achieved good results. In this context, acupuncture therapy provides new rehabilitation ideas for the recovery of related muscle damage and strengthening of muscle strength in badminton, and it can also enrich traditional resistance training or drug rehabilitation treatment methods.
