Many patients are referred to me from Orthopedic Surgeons throughout Los Angeles for acupuncture for auto accident injuries. Many time the injuries are purely muscular soft tissue injuries such as:
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Upper Back Pain
- Lower Back Pain
- Hip Pain
Despite the value of physical therapy, chiropractic and medications, acupuncture for auto accident injuries appears to be the favorite and most effective form of treatment for my patients.
It is important to note that after a traumatic accident, the muscles tend to remain in a hypertonic state that leads to stiffness, soreness and limited range of motion. Despite the value of physical therapy, chiropractic and medications, acupuncture seems to be the favorite and most effective form of treatment for my patients. Many talk of how quickly they have healed after acupuncture in comparison to other modalities. Most often emphasize that the tiny thin needles used for acupuncture are painless and that the treatments are much more enjoyable and relaxing than even a massage.
Many of my established patients come directly to my office after an auto accident for acupuncture treatments. The treatment protocol is to assess the injury, order MRIs or X-ray’s, treat and refer to any other pysicians as needed. My office will also confirm auto insurance coverage and has relationships with some of Los Angeles’s most reputable attorneys where lien arrangements can be made. Most people cannot afford to suffer waiting for other forms of treatment to work. Sometimes they never meet expectations. Why waste time?
