If you have been in an Auto Accident or have experienced a Acute injury here are some things about Acupuncture to keep in mind.

  • Acupuncture helps bring down inflammation, speeds up healing and recovery, and gets your natural endorphins (pain killers) in the body working.
  • It is very important to seek treatment right away for injuries. Even an impact 3 mph can cause whiplash and you may not feel any pain for 2 -3 day after an accident.
  • You have up to 1 year to seek treatment after an auto injury for your Auto Insurance to pay, but there is a limit on your policy.

Acupuncture can be billed directly to the auto insurance just like other medical treatments.  Acupuncturists can also perform your initial evaluation and determine the right approach for your care.
