Did you know that you don’t need a referral to get acupuncture after an auto accident?
Its true, though most of us don’t even realize that an Acupuncture referral is not required after an auto accident. If you experience pain as a result of a car wreck you can access acupuncture using your car insurance, or the insurance of the driver at fault. In Oregon you have one year or $15,000 to treat your pain resulting from your accident.
Chiropractic care is great at treating pain in the body as a result of improper bone alignment. Acupuncture is great at treatment pain in the body as a result of tight muscles. After an auto accident it is likely that you have both, so, we recommend that you seek out both types of care. Acupuncture releases the tight muscles so that chiropractic adjustments last. When we get adjusted with tight muscles, we often have pain and discomfort, when we get an adjustment after muscle tension has been released our adjustment is more comfortable, effective and longer lasting.
