Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) Recovery
In the state of Oregon, any medical bills resulting from the motor vehicle accident are paid for by Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance. Oregon requires at least $15,000 in PIP coverage for you, and all passengers in your car, for a period of one year after a collision. Most importantly, you are allowed to seek care from the health care practitioner of your choice, including acupuncturists.
If you have been injured in a car accident, Acupuncture can help.
An automobile accident can cause many types of injury. If you where discharged from the ER without any fractures or specific injuries requiring surgery, but you are having pain—you may have soft-tissue damage. Your muscles protect your body in many ways. One of those ways is by limiting your range of motion when outside forces act on your body—as happens in an accident. Your muscles and connective tissues (ligaments, tendons, etc.) get jerked and strained in an accident. This causes damage. The pain from these injuries can start immediately after your incident, or set in over the following days. If you are having ANY pain since your accident, it is a good idea to be seen by an acupuncture doctor for an evaluation. Soft-tissue injuries usually respond well to acupuncture.

Don't Let Your Injuries Become Chronic Problems
Acupuncture not only relieves the pain from injuries (something that drugs can also do), but it also triggers and supports the repair of the injured tissues (something drugs don't do). This is a key factor in making sure that nagging pain from your accident a week ago doesn't turn into the nagging pain you've had for 20 years.

Acupuncture can be added to treatments you may already be doing for your MVA injuries, such as physical therapy or chiropractic. Acupuncture can also get improvement after other treatments have failed or only achieved limited results. Whether you will use acupuncture on its own, or in combination with other therapies, time is critical; you don't want to wait any longer than you have to to get started.
