Acupuncture for Auto Accident Injuries

auto-accidentAre you experiencing pain since your auto accident? It might be worth your while to get examined by a licensed acupuncturist. These types of injuries usually respond very well to acupuncture. Let’s make sure that the acute pain that you have from last week’s accident doesn’t become chronic pain that you have to endure for 15 years.

No Referral Necessary

With Minnesota no-fault insurance it is not necessary to have a doctors referral to get acupuncture for your auto injury. It is not up to your physician to decide what type of treatment you need.

Car crashes can result in numerous injuries. Your muscles can get wrenched and strained in an accident. Often, the symptoms of an automobile accident such as whiplash or back pain doesn’t affect your body until weeks or months later. Medications can mask the pain after an accident so you may not even realize how injured you are. The style of acupuncture that we offer at our clinic is very effective to address the root cause of your pain.

If your auto accident claim is open and you are seeking or receiving treatment for your accident, your automobile insurance will probably cover your acupuncture treatment. Call our office today with your claim information.

Here are a few testimonials from our patients that suffered from auto accident injuries. Many patients who come to our clinic had tried everything from chiropractic to physical therapy to try and get rid of their pain.

I am so glad a friend referred me to Steven Sonmore!! Nearly 2 years ago, I was in a double whiplash car accident (I was the 4th car of 6 to collide). I have not been able to rotate my head enough to see car in another lane, or to ride a motorcycle, or even to pull out a ticket at a parking ramp. I have tried almost everything to loosen up my neck including chiropractic, massage, physical therapy, cortisone shots, cranio-sacral massage, cryotherapy and acupuncture. Each therapy provides some relief, then stops being effective. Steve’s acupuncture has been by far the most successful. My head rotation has definitely improved and my massage therapists tell me that the tissue is much softer than it used to be. And what a wonderful way to be healed — taking a mid-day nap while listening to soothing music. I love all the benefits of acupuncture and Steven is a magician with his needles!!”

Here is another patient testimony. Her chiropractor, with whom she had been seeing for 7 years remarked that her range of motion had greatly improved because of our acupuncture treatments:

I started seeing Dr Steven because of hyper mobility issues in my neck and right shoulder due to an auto accident. Since being a patient my pain level has been reduced from a 7-8 to a 3-4. My Chiropractor, with whom I have been a patient for 7 years has also noticed that my range of motion has improved. Thanks to Dr Steven I have not had to modify my lifestyle and I am able to remain active in workout classes. I would highly recommend that anyone who experiences chronic or acute pain to seek out the help of Complete Oriental Medical Care.”

Your insurance company will only allow you a limited amount of money towards your treatments for accident injury. So don’t you want to choose the best treatment possible for your recovery right away? Choose treatments that will not only alleviate your pain but eradicate any residual of stiffness, scar tissue and limited range of motion?

You could choose massage. But massage can only give you short term pain relief. Acupuncture works on a deeper, more specific level. Or you could choose chiropractic. Chiropractic can be very beneficial but if a muscle is in spasm, it could quickly pull your vertebrae right out of place. If your organs are not functioning normally, they can also pull your bone structure out of alignment too. Our method of Acupuncture can realign your structural, rebalance your organs and alleviate your muscle spasms.
