A car crash 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 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 wreck, 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.
Ask your VA Doctor for a Referral for Acupuncture.
