Auto Accidents are a big problem in California, and especially in Los Angeles county. In the U.S. in 2015 alone, it is estimated that over 4 million people were injured in car accidents. These numbers are startling, and if you drive in Los Angeles county, you know, first hand, how common car accidents are. Many of you have experienced car accidents within the last year.  Some of you may also experience pain immediately after these car accidents, and some experience pain up to two years after a car accident. Some people may not correlate the pain they feel with a car accident that happened up to two years ago.  But it is often related and acupuncture can help. Acupuncture takes care of the root of the issues in the body. If the root problem of the pain is an auto accident, then we build a treatment plan to help it. Acupuncture works by moving the energy and blood of the body to create smooth flow in the body and balance. This is why Acupuncture is a unique treatment modality.

Many people who suffer from auto accident related pain try chiropractic treatments, physical therapy, massage, and maybe personal training to get rid of the pain. Common auto accident related pain can manifest in the neck, back, and shoulders or hips. Sometimes, these treatment modalities help, and other times they have little affect on the pain condition. Chiropractic, personal training, or physical therapy can help some types of spine and muscle pain.  However, other types of accident related pain or discomfort can manifest as headaches, trouble sleeping, and sometimes anxiety, which Acupuncture can treat very well

Here’s the good news, Acupuncture can treat back pain, neck pain, hip pain, headaches, anxiety, trouble sleeping, and shoulder pain. Acupuncture is an effecting treatment for auto accident related pain and suffering. The better news is that car insurance companies will pay for treatment with acupuncture if they cover medical bills. Acupuncture is a win win for auto accident sufferers. Acupuncture treatment is a treatment modality that serves to improve the whole health and wellness of the body and mind, and auto accidents are no exception.
