In brief: Yes
I would suggest that you try it.

May help 30% of the time for pain only. Does not cure injury to anatomic structures.

In brief: See below
Acupuncture appears to help in a lot of situations with pain so i would think that it might also help with sports injuries as well.

In brief: Yes and no.
May help with pain or stress (if you Believe in it enough).
But the injury itself will still take time to heal and if bad enough may need surgery.
