4. Lauren’s Experience With Acupuncture Helped Brian Recover From Injuries
During the 2015 season, Hoyer struggled with multiple concussions. To help speed up his recovery, stepped outside the box, borrowing an experience from Lauren.
Hoyer’s wife used acupuncture during her first pregnancy. At 36 weeks, Lauren was told that because of her baby’s positioning, she would be forced to have a C-section.
“We went up to this woman doctor, she put the needles in,” Hoyer said. “They lit some roots and burned it. They had like yoga music on. I literally watched my wife’s stomach shift.”
Hoyer tried acupuncture, as well as hyperbaric chambers, to help recover from injuries. Hoyer only started nine games n 2015, but missed two of the final three weeks of the season while undergoing concussion protocol.
