Automobile or Workers Compensation Injury
A whiplash or connective tissue injury is a very common injury after acar accident, the neck and body can rapidly move backwards thenforward stretching the muscles and connective tissue.
Symptoms may involve pain shooting from the neck into the shoulder or arm, neck swelling or tenderness, muscle spasms, difficulty with neck mobility and headaches. Soft tissue (muscles, ligaments and tendons) injuries do not show up well on any imaging study, so the patient’s x-rays or other diagnostic studies are often normal.
Acupuncture, which strengthens connective tissue and facilitates muscular relaxation is utilized to strategically treat the neck muscles as well as the tendinomuscular aspects of the spine. It can stop the frustrating cycle of muscle spasms, pain and eventually loss of function by increasing circulation to the muscles and prompting the body to heal itself.
