One of the hardest parts about a car accident or a fall is how long it can take to heal. Lets just be honest the body was not meant to travel at 60+ MPH while sitting. It was certainly not meant to stop suddenly from those speeds.
With this kind of injury the neck , the back, the shoulders can all create a great amount of pain. This pain limits your ability to focus, to do your job, to take care of your family, and to take care of yourself. What is worse is that it can persist for quite a long time. This is due to the fact that often the damage is in tissue, ligaments and tendons, which are not highly vascularized (don't have a lot of blood flow.) The lack of blood flow then prevents them from repairing.
This is where acupuncture comes in! Acupuncture is a great way to stimulate blood flow to these sore and damaged tissues. When combined with Chiropractic and Massage visits I have seen my patients recover more quickly and completely than with any one modality alone.
By using local acupuncture points for pain combined with Dr. Yoshio Manaka's Ion pumping cords acupuncture can help pull you out of the pain cycle and be on the permanent road to recovery.
