Workplace injuries can be costly, both in terms of your health and required time off from work. If your goal is to return to work as quickly as possible, acupuncture for worker’s compensation can accelerate your body’s recovery process and ensure that healing is complete to get you back on the job in a shorter amount of time. This service is proudly offered by 1st Choice Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine in Bellevue, WA.
What Is Acupuncture for Worker’s Compensation?
Acupuncture originated as a traditional Chinese practice aimed at restoring balance in the body’s “Qi,” or life energy. Today, it is one of the most effective alternative medicine approaches to pain management.
By using needles to target meridians, or energy pathways, throughout your body, acupuncture for worker’s compensation can reduce pain and promote accelerated healing by eliminating imbalances caused by injury.
How Can Acupuncture Help Me Return to Work More Quickly?
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 2.8 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses reported by private industry employers in 2018. When our bodies are injured, the energy inside of us is naturally disrupted.
The lingering side effects and pain of an injury sustained in the workplace can continue for months or years without an effective healing strategy. Acupuncture for worker’s compensation provides workers with high-quality, cost-effective care which facilitates increased blood flow to the site of injury, which helps promote a speedy recovery.
In addition, sessions often result in positive side effects which may include better sleep quality, lower stress levels, and increased energy.
What Should I Expect During an Appointment?
Our goal is to see you return to work as quickly as possible, which means that we are completely dedicated to your full recovery. During an acupuncture session, one of our professionals will review your medical history and discuss your health.
The specialist will then insert needles at targeted points along the meridians in your injured area, which helps promote blood flow to the region and helps correct the energy imbalance sustained along with your injury.
