When we are injured in a motor vehicle accident, there is not only pain from the physical trauma.
There is also, in many cases, the mental/emotional trauma that results from the terrifying nature of an accident. Both of these types of pain can last for years, if not treated correctly. After a motor vehicle accident, during the initial recovery, it is important not to treat the injured areas with too much force.
Acupuncture is used away from the area of pain to stimulate repair processes and reduce excessive tension in the muscles, and promote tissue regeneration. If the pain is chronic, acupuncture can also be applied to the painful area. Because acupuncture is actually quite gentle on the tissue, (no pressure or twisting or pulling) the body can relax while repair is encouraged.
The mental/emotional effects of a motor vehicle accident, or any other type of trauma, can also be addressed with acupuncture. In fact, the US military is using acupuncture in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder.
