Are you receiving Workers Compensation (Workman’s Comp) for an injury on the job? Acupuncture is an excellent therapy for pain relief and pain management. Through the Florida Workers’ Compensation program, acupuncture is a covered form of treatment. I accept your benefits here at Red Sage Acupuncture Center.
Treatment for Pain
Increasingly, acupuncture is recognized by the US health care system as a proven therapy for pain. Here in the clinic, I treat all kinds of pain, including acute pain from recent injuries. This type of pain can show up in the neck, back, arms, legs, feet or joints. When an injury is recent, the benefit from acupuncture is felt all the more quickly.
Workers Compensation injuries are usually severe enough to warrant a trip to the hospital. So where does acupuncture fit into your overall treatment plan?
After a work-related injury, most people are eager to get back to work as quickly as possible. For most types of injuries, acupuncture is highly recommended because it helps speed healing time.
Acupuncture can also help you get more benefit from the other forms of therapy you may be receiving, because it primes your body’s own healing mechanisms. It helps to dissipate inflammation and related pain, and encourages healthy circulation. And if you are feeling extra tired after your injury, acupuncture can help you feel better overall.
If you must undergo surgery, acupuncture is helpful in helping your body to recover from the procedure.
I am happy to coordinate care with your other doctors, and/or will work to support the other treatments you are receiving.
Filing a Workers Compensation Claim
If you have been injured but have not yet filed a Workers Compensation claim, I encourage you to do so. You do have the option to choose the type of care that you prefer.
