HOW DOSE ACUPUNCTURE AND MERIDIAN BALANCING HELP AFTER BEING INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT?
There are 12 main “circuit breakers” in the body called meridians. These correlate to organs and their function, and muscles that move bones within the body.
Many points are distributed along the meridians. These points are essentially transformer stations through which energy flows into the muscle structure. When the bones of the skull and spine are out of alignment, imbalances can develop in these energy flows, causing some of the transformer points to become congested. For example, a person may have a knee problem due to an energy constriction in the liver or gallbladder meridian. Meridian imbalance can affect the entire spinal column, from the skull to the tailbone and even the arches of the feet, resulting in pain or weakness in the surrounding muscles.
Meridian balancing returns balance by releasing the flow of energy to all of the meridians. Stimulating these points with special pressure (acupressure) helps to normalize impaired conditions. This balancing energy treatment re-aligns the skull, the posture, and the body’s total energy. Patients feel a return of normal organ energy and relief from pressure and pain. There is a noticeable difference in postural strength.
During treatment, pressure is applied to the acupuncture point. The meridian energy flow is released throughout the body, sending healing energy where it’s needed and allowing muscles to relax. Meridian balancing may unlock a healing reaction to an injury or weakness that has been undiscovered and untreated for several years.
TREATING INJURIES FROM MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS WITH ACUPUNCTURE
It is important to seek care promptly for any injuries and symptoms immediately after an accident. It may be a difficult decision to choose the right form of care to address your pain and discomfort. But it is an important decision to make in order to keep current injuries from becoming chronic. Depending on the type of injury, chiropractic, massage, physical therapy and acupuncture are the most commonly used treatment modalities. It is also common for patients to combine different modalities for faster results and to be able to address different aspects of an injury.
How Acupuncture Can Help
Acupuncture and TCM has the ability to successfully aid in the healing of soft-tissue injuries, relaxing the muscles, relieving painful symptoms, helping your body regain its natural balance and vitality as well as alleviating any stress and anxiety.
Chinese Medical Theory
A fundamental statement from Chinese Medical theory states, “If there is free-flow, there is no pain; if there is no free-flow, there is pain” Based on this theory facilitating the circulation and flow of blood and Qi (pronounced “chee”) will eliminate pain and restore balance.
According to acupuncture and TCM, Qi is the life or vital energy that animates and strengthens the body. Qi flows through pathways called meridians and pushes blood to all of the body’s organs, tissues, muscles, and tendons to provide nourishment so that they can function optimally and respond to normal wear and tear.
In an accident, you may experience physical trauma that disrupts and restricts the flow of Qi and blood leading to pain, stiffness and a host of other problems. Acupuncture activates your body’s self-healing and self-regulating capacities, helping to bring great circulation to the area that is being treated and function like a magnet for improved blood flow. Through acupuncture, a consistent flow of blood is restored, returning the muscle to a normal state of realization, flexibility and reduced pain.
There are also the emotional effects of an accident, including shock and anxiety. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are excellent for calming the spirit, reducing anxiety, and relieving the symptoms of shock.
Acupuncture and TCM provide a natural and effective way to help you regain your health and well being after a motor vehicle accident. It is a powerful and ancient health care modality that can restore your body’s balance and harmony, heal the injured area, reduce stress and anxiety which are common after an accident, and return you to pain-free living..
Well Being office is great! I dragged a box of files at work and started having lot of back pain, i went to my regular Dr and he started doing x-trays and giving me drugs for the pain. Every day i was feeling worse and told a co-worker that i did not know what to do anymore because I keep going to my regular Doctor but he was not helping me, so she tells me i will give you a Chiropractors name that helped me b4 with my back pain just in case you want to go. i went to them and it was worth to go, with 4 visits i was able to go back to normal activities, i had my last visit yesterday and i hope to continue feeling as good.
A friend of mine recommended me to this place and I'm so glad she did. I street parked and shuffled my way to this clinic but I'm out now strutting back to my car. I was impressed how Dr. Goldshteyn knew my left was tense and limited in mobility with just a touch.
When I woke up this morning in a great deal of pain the first thing I told my husband was that my left side felt like a 2x4 was stapled along the spine. The doc has some magic hands! No I'm not getting a free soda with my meal, nor did they ask me to write a review, this is a legit recommendation! If you have back issues give this place a try!
I have recently become a patient at Well-being Chiropractic, in a great deal of pain initially but now being treated by their doctors and I have been feeling much better. The multidisciplinary treatments of physical therapy, accupuncture and chiropractic medicine offered have improved my overall health. I feel cared about by the staff and individual treatment, time and patience given to me. The facility is pristine, inviting and comfortable. The office staff is helpful, friendly and organized. I highly recommend this facility and Dr Goldshteyn , she is kind, supportive, knowledgeable and professional.
I'm 37 and when I first came to Dr. Goldshteyn I had a strange tingling sensation down my left arm and leg. I had trouble sleeping, sitting - anything that required me to be in the same position for longer than an hour. I expected to come for the occasional adjustment, and was taken aback when she recommended a treatment plan. But I'm glad I followed his plan. After 6 weeks the tingling sensation has nearly subsided and her recommendations have completely changed my life for the better.
