To explore the effect of acupuncture therapy on strengthening the muscle groups around the cervical spine of freestyle skiing aerial skiers and preventing cervical spine injury of freestyle skiing aerial skiers, so as to ensure the reduction of injury. After neck injury, whether it can accelerate the rehabilitation of neck injury and reduce the time of sports rehabilitation. In this paper, through comparative analysis and literature analysis, we will carry out general resistance training and acupuncture therapy for freestyle skiing aerial skiers respectively, and then test and evaluate the muscle strength of the muscle group around the cervical spine through hand-held dynamometer and adjustable tension belt, so as to draw a conclusion that acupuncture therapy can promote the growth of muscle strength, The effect of acupuncture therapy in the early stage of athletes' sports injury rehabilitation is better than that of ordinary resistance training.
