The Importance of Having Early Intervention

Central Sensitization (CS) is a condition in which peripheral thresholds for pain become abnormally low. Patient often report constant nagging pain in the body.

And it is common to see car accident related injuries (concussion, whiplash) if left untreated or improperly treated; That’s why we early intervention.

From my experiences, natural recovery from a car accident can be slow. The shock and the stress of the accident really disrupted the body’s healing function. 

Acupuncture address both the body’s physical tissue and the mental impact of the motor vehicle accident equally. That’s exactly why the safe and gentle treatment of acupuncture is a smart option for MVA related injuries. It is best to receive treatment as early as possible (after cleared from ER.)
