AUTO ACCIDENT RECOVERY
Acupuncture an effective option for care when treating car accidents injuries. According to Chinese medicine, injuries should be treated immediately before they settle in the body. People involved in accidents often think their injuries are not severe enough for treatment, only to experience chronic pain in the future. Clinical data proves many chronic injuries (back pain, neck pain, headaches) typically stem from injuries sustained in auto accidents. Acupuncture is an appropriate treatment because studies prove it increases blood flow for healing, decreases inflammation, and manipulates neurotransmitters to decrease pain in the body. Acupuncture is also a tool to communicate with the muscle, bones, and ligaments of the body to facilitate healing. Regular acupuncture sessions after an auto accident can prevent chronic pain in the future. Other modalities I offer, such as cupping, scraping, Chinese herbs, and supplements, can help further help the healing process.
