By Athletes In Several Sports Acupuncture Used Wicfe/y By RON ROACH AP Sporls Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Acupuncturists call their ancient Oriental needle medical treatment a bonanza or health for the American athlete. Bill Walton, Willie JlcCovey and Roman Gabriel have tried acupuncture. But the, jury is still out on whether acupuncture--the stimulation of nerves via the needle - can become widespread in sports the United States, medicine in Athletes \vlio have undergone acupuncture oflcn h a v e r e l a - tively brief, inconclusive exposure.

But 1 was able to perform without missing a practice. I also recovered much quicker after a game with acupuncture. "It was relatively painless.'* lie said of the treatments. "There were certain areas where I could feel it. I feel if I ever have something that bothers me, I'll look for him," he said of the unidentified practitioner. Baseball's McCovey, the San Diego Padres' slugger, had his arthritic knees treated two springs ago by a trainer with a Japanese team in this countrj for exhibition games. "While I continued my other treatment-- whirlpool and lha stuff-- my knees began to feel good. It was probably a com- )inalion of the two. I had a foot iroblem last winter-- maybe it s sort of arthritic from an old ankle injury, nobody really knows-- and I tried acu- mncture. It didn't seem to help hat much, nut maybe I stopped treatments too early." Kerlan said he would refer a jalient to an acupuncturist only f the individual wants it and all orthodox treatments, including surgery, have been exhausted. "We have to prove acupuncture scientifically at the university level," said Kroen-l ing, who gave up a lucrative rheumatism practice to work at UCLA. "Three years ago. I had a tongue-in-cheek approach to acupuncture. "Acupuncture definitely has a role in sports medicine. How acupuncture works is still a mystery, as it was 5,000 years ago in China. "Through modern neurophy- siology. we know it works in the nervous system."
