“Let my no fault / personal injury protection insurance experts take care of the details, while you and I focus on your recovery.”  Rob Vena, Licensed Acupuncturist, Point Pleasant, NJ

Being involved and injured in an automobile accident can be an extremely stressful situation, and working with insurance companies can be very confusing and aggravating. If you are covered by no fault or personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, your insurance company will most likely pay for a variety of different medical treatments to help with your recovery; including acupuncture treatments. Such coverage is provided regardless of who was at fault in the accident.

What Is No Fault Insurance?

No fault insurance is a special type of coverage that is seen more and more frequently today as a type of auto insurance coverage. Simply put, with no fault insurance, it does not matter who was “at fault” in the accident. No fault auto insurance covers the cost of consultations as well as treatments and cuts out the need to go through the other party’s insurance provider in order to be compensated or reimbursed for medical expenses. No fault insurance saves everyone time because coverage usually kicks in before fault is even determined in most cases. It also saves you money and allows you to get the treatment you need right away.

In some cases, and when necessary, no fault insurance will cover acupuncture treatments for up to five times a week. Not only does no fault insurance save time and allow you to get the help you need, but no fault acupuncture treatments can decrease your recovery time by speeding up the healing process. Acupuncture is proven to be effective in reducing pain and stress, and this can ultimately help ease your suffering throughout the healing process.

A no fault acupuncturist can provide a wide variety of different acupuncture techniques for an array of different conditions ranging from minor to severe. He/she will determine the ideal course of treatment required for each individual case.

Acupuncture can help treat various types of accident-related injuries. It can help relieve pain and swelling while promoting healing and dramatically reduce stress levels. Bruises, broken bones, head trauma, whiplash, back and spine injuries, and muscle damage are just a few of the many conditions that can be helped with acupuncture.

When To See An Acupuncturist

If you are covered by no fault insurance, you may be eligible to reap the benefits of acupuncture treatment with no out-of-pocket expense. Low back pain, neck pain, postoperative pain, and post-traumatic stress disorder can all benefit from regular acupuncture treatments. If you are experiencing mild to severe pain from an auto accident or surgery following an accident, several visits a week can be a viable alternative to using potentially harmful and addictive pain medications to manage your pain. One added bonus, is that acupuncture has none of the potentially harmful side-effects of medications.

Sometimes it can take a few days following an accident for soreness to arise. Even if it’s just a minor fender-bender, you can still end up with low back, shoulder or neck pain due to your spine being impacted. Along with physical injuries, accidents also result in increased levels of stress. There are so many aspects of an accident that you may have to deal with in the aftermath. Severe accidents can even result in the development of PTSD, which in its most severe form, can be debilitating. No fault Acupuncture treatments can be effective for all of these conditions.

  • Blood flow: Any type of injury from a bruise to a slipped disc in your back can benefit from improved blood flow. Everything your body needs for recovery and healing is found in the blood, so boosting blood flow to the area of injury increases the presence of a plethora of healthy substances. Oxygen in the blood promotes healing and there are also pain-relievers, anti-inflammatory substances, and even substances that prevent infection in your blood.
  • Natural pain relief: Pain after an accident comes in all shapes and sizes. Your body’s natural pain-relievers work faster and provide longer-lasting relief than over-the-counter medications and even some prescription pain-killers. These natural pain-relievers are promoted using acupuncture and acupuncture has no side-effects. It can help with pain ranging from minor to severe, whether it is associated with an injury or surgical procedure.
  • Relaxation and stress-reduction: One of the greatest benefits of no fault acupuncture treatments is significant stress-relief. Stress comes along with any accident, regardless of the severity, and stress can impact your day-to-day life and negatively affect your well-being in surprising ways. Acupuncture stimulates the endocrine system, which generates a feeling of calmness. It also prompts the production of serotonin, which will lift your spirits. You will most likely leave your no fault acupuncturist’s office feeling pain-free and relaxed.

Acupuncture for Back Pain in Point Pleasant, NJ

Acupuncture for Back Pain in Point Pleasant, NJ

Acupuncture for Back Pain

It has been estimated that nearly 80% of people will deal with low back pain during their lifetime. With so many people suffering from this problem, it is no surprise that acupuncture has become a popular form of treatment.

Research now shows that acupuncture can be an effective treatment for all kinds of back pain issues.

Acupuncture vs. Traditional Treatments

Reviews of medical studies show acupuncture to be a viable treatment option for back issues and can provide sciatica pain relief as well . In fact, these studies indicate that acupuncture provides more effective pain relief than conventional back pain treatments. Both the American Pain Society and American College of Physicians recommend acupuncture when more traditional medical methods fail.

Why Acupuncture Works for Back Pain

The roots of acupuncture can be traced back over 2,500 years to ancient China. The practice involves the insertion of very thin needles into various energetic points located all around the body. According to traditional Chinese medical theory, there are over 365 acupuncture points on the human body. A form of energy known as Qi (pronounced chee), flows through the pathways, or meridians, that connect these points like a grid. Needles inserted into the appropriate points along these meridians help to correct imbalances or clear blockages of this energy, leading to pain relief and better overall health.

On a more scientific level, some experts feel that the relief comes from stimulation of the central nervous system, triggering chemicals that release into the brain, muscles and spinal cord. It is believed by some, that these chemicals either create an overall sense of well-being within the body or may actually alter the way the pain is felt and/or experienced.

Others believe that acupuncture speeds up electromagnetic signals in the body. These signals can stimulate chemicals, such as endorphins, that reduce pain and may even affect the body’s own immune system cells. Other theories suggest that acupuncture releases natural opioids from the brain or that it may even change the brain’s chemistry altogether through the release of neurohormones and neurotransmitters throughout the entire body.

All of these are ways in which pain is reduced.

What to Consider With Acupuncture

Acupuncture is rapidly becoming one of the most popular forms of lower back pain treatments. It interesting to note that the FDA has removed acupuncture needles from the “experimental medical devices” category and now regulates the practice of acupuncture within the United States.

Whether it’s for low back pain, sciatica pain relief,  or other back issues, always take some things into consideration and do your research before seeking treatment. It is best to seek a licensed acupuncturist (L.Ac.), who is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). It is also advised to see what others have to say about any acupuncturist you might be considering.

Spring is the perfect time of year to cleanse and get our energy moving again.

Just as we automatically think of ‘spring cleaning’ around the house – so we should think of our bodies.

Cleansing helps us to rid our systems of the unwanted toxins and junk that have accumulated inside over the long winter.

Cleansing can help raise our spirits as well.

Consider making a healthy transition into spring this year by doing a cleanse, exercising regularly, meditating, and eating foods that are in season.

And, acupuncture should figure into your plan as well.

Having an acupuncture ‘tune-up’ at the onset of the season is the perfect way to get your energy moving again and stay healthy.

Acupuncture can also help rid you of the negative side effects of stress and make an easy transition between winter and spring without getting sick, by boosting your immune system.

Enjoy the Change of Season.

Catch that Cold before it Catches You / Jersey Shore Acupuncture in Pt Pleasant, NJ

Prevention has always played an important role in the practice of Chinese medicine, which can not only help prevent colds and flu, but can also help treat these illnesses once symptoms appear.

The key to effective treatment is early intervention, and patients can greatly benefit from treatment prior to the arrival of cold and flu season.

In Chinese Medicine, autumn has always been considered a very good time of year to improve health, balance and strengthen the body, and boost the immune system before the colder months of winter settle in.

So, why not set up an appointment to see your acupuncturist now… before cold and flu season arrives?

Remember… The sooner treatment is received for flu-like symptoms, the faster and more effective that treatment can be… But, prevention is always better!
