Acupuncture for Car Accident Injuries

Car accidents can leave you with a variety of injuries, from whiplash and back pain to headaches and muscle strain. These injuries can cause debilitating pain and significantly impact your quality of life if left untreated. Fortunately, Aim High Health in Aurora, Denver, and Wheat Ridge, CO, can pair chiropractic care with acupuncture to alleviate pain and restore your range of motion. Continue reading to learn about acupuncture and how it can help with your car accident injury.


How Acupuncture Works

Acupuncture involves inserting thin, sterile needles into specific points along the body's energy pathways called meridians. This process can stimulate the nervous system and promote the release of endorphins, or the body's natural pain relievers, to alleviate pain. Acupuncture can also accelerate healing and reduce inflammation by improving blood flow to injured areas.

Benefits of Acupuncture for Car Accident Injuries

Acupuncture can provide several benefits when included in your car accident recovery plan. Many people will experience the following after acupuncture sessions:

  • Pain Relief: Acupuncture can effectively reduce pain by stimulating the release of endorphins.
  • Reduced Inflammation: Acupuncture needles help decrease inflammation to alleviate pain and stiffness after an accident.
  • Improved Blood Flow: Acupuncture accelerates healing and promotes tissue repair by increasing blood flow to injured areas.
  • Muscle Relaxation: Acupuncture can relieve muscle tension and spasms after a car accident.

Pairing Acupuncture With Other Therapies

While acupuncture as a standalone treatment can help with several car accident injuries and conditions, your acupuncturist may include other techniques to enhance your results. Your acupuncturist can utilize the following therapies alongside acupuncture to help you achieve lasting pain relief and improved wellness:

  • Cupping: This therapy involves placing glass or silicone cups on the skin to create suction, helping improve circulation and relieve muscle tension.
  • Dry Needling: Dry needling uses thin needles to target trigger points to promote muscle release and reduce pain.
  • Electroacupuncture: Your acupuncturist may pass low-level electrical currents through acupuncture needles to enhance the therapeutic effects of acupuncture.

Talk with your acupuncturist to determine which treatment suits your unique needs and preferences. They can work with your chiropractor to create a personalized treatment plan that enhances your health and well-being.
