In 2013 alone, the bodily liability through road crashes was $15,443. Annual global statistics amount to 20–50 million injured or disabled.
In the U.S., over 37,000 people die in road crashes each year. An additional 2.35 million are injured or disabled
Auto crashes are quite common, leading to serious and often lifetime injuries.
While medications tend to be the perfect way to deal with these injuries, it’s not always the most preferred when it comes to dealing with the pain and the after-effects of surgeries.
The best respite that most people opt for is acupuncture.
How does acupuncture help?
In most auto crashes, the injuries are much more general as compared to those requiring surgery. In these situations, instead of ignoring the problem and making it worse, acupuncture can help in providing long term relief.
Addressing the concerns of the body can lead to understanding just how major or minor the injury is. If you have a problem with your soft tissue, then you will have symptoms such as:
- Neck pain
- Muscle stiffness
- Sciatic pain
- Sore muscles
By using the appropriate pressure points, acupuncture promotes blood flow, strengthens the immune system, and fights off any pain caused by the injury.
Problems acupuncture addresses
By addressing certain points, it can help with:
- Increasing healing time from injuries such as whip lash.
- Eliminating muscle spasms.
- Immensely reducing the formation of scar tissue.
- Increasing flexibility.
- Lowering blood pressure.
- Reducing stress, anxiety and most importantly, post-traumatic stress.
- Releasing endorphins for the reduction of pain.
- Resetting muscles along with repairing the damage.
While medications do the trick with helping cases such as auto crash injuries, they often have adverse side effects and take longer than necessary to act. Considering this, most patients tend to opt for acupuncture treatments.
