Patients with rotator cuff injuries are increasing year by year, especially in sports injuries of athletes. The current medical methods for such rotator cuff injuries are also very limited, and non-drug treatment of athletes can achieve the best results. Therefore, it is indispensable to conduct clinical research on electroacupuncture treatment of volleyball players' shoulder sleeve injury. The purpose of this article is to solve the problem of volleyball player's shoulder sleeve injury using electro-acupuncture treatment. By studying the athlete's shoulder sleeve injury, the advantages of electro-acupuncture treatment of volleyball player's shoulder sleeve injury are analyzed according to the experimental results, so that electro-acupuncture treatment of shoulder sleeve injury Become a new type of treatment. The results show that electroacupuncture treatment can promote qi and blood circulation and local metabolism, improve tissue nutrition, thereby improving and restoring tissue function, and can prevent muscle atrophy, enhance soft tissue flexibility and flexibility, and restore normal motor function. After years of experience in the treatment of athletes, the VAS pain score and treatment effect of patients after treatment are significantly better than before treatment and are better than some other commonly used treatment methods. Electroacupuncture treatment of various conditions of volleyball players ’shoulder sleeve injury can significantly reduce the athlete ’s shoulder joint pain and improve shoulder joint function, which can increase the treatment efficiency by about 20%. This method can reduce the training time by 2-3 times than traditional surgical treatment methods. Months or even years, this is of great significance to the early return of volleyball players to the training ground.
