Acupuncture for Car Accident Injuries

Do you have pain resulting from a car accident injury? If so, you could face a long recovery involving complex therapy and prescription pain medications. However, those suffering from auto accident injuries are turning to their chiropractors to learn more about chiropractic care, including acupuncture, to help the body restore itself after an accident.
Acupuncture is a safe, gentle, and effective treatment that works well with traditional Western medicine treatments. Holistic Health & Chiropractic of Frankfort in Frankfort, IL, has your full recovery in mind. Providing complete, entire body healing therapies to help treat aches and pains and give a shorter rehabilitation period.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture helps treat the root cause of pain, reduce inflammation, and increase blood flow to injured body parts. In addition, acupuncture helps improve the body’s immune system and lessens the effects of aches and pains. Acupuncture also allows the body to create new tissue. Chiropractic care uses acupuncture to minimize prescription medication side effects.

What Can Acupuncture Treat?

Acupuncture can help treat hidden injuries related to auto accidents, including those that do not show up immediately but result in long-term pain and excessive inflammation. For example, acupuncture helps treat persistent neck pain from whiplash, a common complaint among auto accident injury victims. Acupuncture also helps treat:
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Migraines
  • Post-operative pain
  • Back pain
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Chronic pain
  • Concussion
In our Frankfort chiropractic clinic, we use a ‘whole-body’ approach and find that acupuncture works best when provided alongside other treatments such as chiropractic adjustments, corrective exercises, and nutrition that support the body’s healing.

How Can Acupuncture Treat Whiplash?

Acupuncture helps all ailments, including whiplash due to a car accident injury. This form of chiropractic care treatment can help treat whiplash by relieving pain, improving the patient’s ability to handle their damage, helping regulate the patient’s emotions, increasing the patient’s energy levels, and helping the patient with activities of daily living. Additionally, chiropractic care used in conjunction with acupuncture has been reported to help improve a person’s quality of life by providing pain management treatment that does not involve medication.
