Although acupuncture is commonly known to alleviate pain in a specific area of the body–it is not always considered as treatment, especially for auto accidents, and often used as a last resort in care.

At Twins Chiropractic and Physical Medicine , we use a blend of ancient and modern acupuncture techniques to best fit your client’s unique needs.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a well-known form of alternative therapy and medicine. A form of treatment that originated in China over 3,000 years ago, acupuncture is now practiced all over the world. Involving insertion of small, sterile needles into the skin in various body locations-better known as acupuncture points. Acupuncture points are found along nerves, muscles and connective tissues that generally are between or just along muscle edges. When needles are inserted into these specific areas, they stimulate blood flow and promote healing.

Who Can Acupuncture Help?

Evidence found in recent years has shown that acupuncture could be beneficial for patients involved in car accidents and can reduce trauma in both physical and emotional ways. Research has shown that acupuncture slows the production of hormones and releases endorphins, which activates the body’s ability to naturally heal itself, which is why acupuncture is effective in improving anxiety and stress.

According to reports from AHRQ, acupuncture is at the top of almost every category in measuring the effectiveness of treatments for low back pain. Acupuncture therapy is also effective for helping relieve whiplash symptoms such as neck pain, shoulder pain, dizziness and headaches. Since acupuncture is a form of passive treatment, meaning the patient is not moving or aggravating any muscles, it provides a shorter recovery time and prevents any long-term health issues that could have resulted from the accident.

Acupuncture for Auto Accident Injuries

Receiving acupuncture after an auto accident helps reduce inflammation and pain quickly and can be helpful with patients who are receiving chiropractic care alongside it. Since acupuncture aids in reducing pain signals, relaxing muscles and increasing blood flow to speed healing, chiropractors can perform alignments and manipulations to the spine and joints with ease. Even though acupuncture and chiropractic are both very different, using them in conjunction promotes the body to heal without the use of surgery or invasive treatments. Together, chiropractic care and acupuncture could provide you client with the fastest results to live a happy and healthy life and regain a sense of normalcy.
