Unfortunately auto-related accidents happen that can leave you in unexpected pain and discomfort for some time. Most common complaints include back, rib, and muscle pain. Other common injuries include whiplash, neck pain and headaches, as well as anxiety and sleeplessness.
Many times, the injury may not cause symptoms until a week or two following your accident. It is important to be evaluated by a healthcare practitioner to determine the severity of your injuries. Acupuncture is an excellent course of treatment for any pain-related condition.
Whether you are the driver, passenger, pedestrian or bicyclist involved in a collision, you have the ability to use PIP (Personal Injury Protection) insurance to cover the cost of your injuries. In the State of Oregon, you and your passengers are entitled to a minimum of $15,000 worth of care for up to a year. Acupuncturists do not need referrals to bill your PIP insurance so that you can get the care you need sooner rather than later following your accident.
Having a healthcare team to meet your needs is helpful in these circumstances to make sure you are pain free and can go on with your regular activities. Mari works with many chiropractors, massage therapists and physical therapists if you need additional therapy to help you recover from your injuries.
