Acupuncture and Motor Vehicle Accident

Acupuncture for Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA)

If you have been injured in a car accident, acupuncture can be an exceptional help in you recovery. Acupuncture (and Chinese Medicine) is a highly effective method to treat wounds and injuries. That will include physical injury (minor or major, after cleared by your ER doctor)Co , concussion, whiplash associated disorders and psycho-emotional trauma (anxiety, sleep disturbance, depression) caused by the motor vehicle accident. And it has excellent synergistic effect

Starting April 1, 2019, ICBC provides their customer 12 sessions of preauthorized treatment within the first 12 weeks following the incident. (see details here.) All you need is a claim number from ICBC, no referral is necessary!

The Importance of Having Early Intervention

Central Sensitization (CS) is a condition in which peripheral thresholds for pain from pressure, temperature, electrical and other stimuli are abnormally low. And it is easy for to see chronic whiplash or other motor vehicle injuries (if left untreated or improperly treated ) developing into CS related hyperglycemia; which resulting in unnecessary constant nagging pain in the body. While CS-related hyperglycemia also response to acupuncture, it is still recommended to have early intervention in order to reduce the number of treatments needed.

After a motor vehicle accident, the body is in shock. From my experiences, such shock can last exceptionally long and healing won’t fully start until the mind has reconcile the trauma properly. That’s exactly why the safe and gentle treatment of acupuncture is a smart option for MVA related injuries. It address the energetic body of a person which not only speed up healing of the body’s physical tissue and reduce pain; but address the mental impact of the motor vehicle accident equally well.  it is best to receive treatment as early as possible (after cleared from ER.)
