Automobile accidents are responsible for many of the nagging injuries that we face. The human body is built to travel at or under 20 miles per hour. When the body is subjected to the forces that occur in a motor vehicle accident, bones, ligaments, and other soft tissues can be severely damaged. If this has happened to you or to one of your loved ones, please listen up! There is help available.
Acupuncture when performed by a Licensed Acupuncturist is one of the fastest, most effective methods for relieving the neck, shoulder, and back pain that results from a collision. When the body is traumatized, muscles tense up. The reason for this is the body protects itself by restricting our range of motion so that we do not injure ourselves even more. These tense muscles, and inflamed tissues can have a devastating effect on our activities of daily living.
When the very fine, one time use acupuncture needles are inserted by a trained professional, the body is encouraged to relax, and to heal. Acupuncture encourages the flow of lymph and blood to damaged parts of the body. This brings nutrients to the affected area and removes stagnant toxins. In this way, the body heals much faster.
