Acupuncture effectively treats whiplash and can be used on patients of all ages.
Acupuncturists use very thin, sterile needles to stimulate the flow of Qi (life energy) throughout the body. This energy travels through channels or meridians throughout the body. Blocked Qi causes the person’s ache, pain, illness, or dis-ease. Properly placed acupuncture needles help to restore the normal flow of energy, relieving the patient’s ache, pain, or illness.
Acupuncture compliments conventional treatments like chiropractic, physical therapy, and massage. By combining different types of treatment, patients feel better, heal faster and stay better longer. Research has shown that acupuncture can help musculoskeletal issues like neck pain, back pain, and headaches. It can also help joint problems in the ankles, knees, elbows and shoulders. These are all injuries experienced by people involved in auto accidents. This makes acupuncture ideal for whiplash injuries.
Acupuncture also helps patients with stress relief, rashes, vertigo, and radiating pain (e.g. sciatica).
How do you decide if acupuncture for whiplash is for you? First, choose the right office. When you arrive, your provider will sit consult with you to discuss your injuries or condition. You will receive a thorough examination. If you are new to acupuncture or have questions about the process, just ask us your provider. They will make sure you’re comfortable before they begin. Some may even demonstrate on themselves to show you how simple and pain free the treatment can be. Acupuncture needles are extremely thin. About as thick as a strand of hair. Because of this, many patients don’t even realize the session has begun!
