Hurt in an Accident?
When you have been hurt on the job or in an auto accident, your top priority is to restore your health and regain your productive life. Frequently, this is as simple as a visit to the doctor to rule out any lingering injuries and a few days of rest. However, when your injuries require more time to heal and/or chronic pain begins to control and negatively affect your life, you may need to look at other options, including acupuncture. One option is the use of prescription pain relievers along with other therapies, which offer pain relief while you rehabilitate. Unfortunately, all prescription medications create unwanted side effects that can occasionally impair your recovery or even create other health issues. A more natural option is acupuncture in conjunction with restorative therapies. Acupuncture acts a catalyst, helping the body create its own natural pain relievers and regenerative abilities without the undesirable side effects of prescription medications. If you are hurt in an accident, remember to visit your Acupuncturist as soon as possible to avoid prolonging your injuries. If you are in the Pittsburgh area or South Hills, call Medical Acupuncture for your evaluation and care.
