Auto Accidents & Personal Injury

Injuries sustained in auto accidents or personal injury cases

Acupuncture can help increase healing from injuries resulting from auto accidents such as whiplash, back pain, muscle spasms, and headaches and get you back to feeling pain-free in no-time!

Auto Accidents & Personal Injury Definition:


If you were recently in an auto accident, acupuncture can help!

At Starting Point, we find most often people seek out acupuncture when they have “tried” everything else and are still in intense pain, having muscle spasms, headaches, poor sleep due to the accident. The addition of acupuncture in treatment plans have been shown to reduce or eliminate pain as much as 75% in only a few treatments. Why drag on the pain and suffering, get relief now!

Do you need a referral for care?

In Washington State, you do not need a referral for acupuncture if you have been in an accident. Most PIP (Personal Injury Protection) coverage covers acupuncture. Get pain free, Get back to work, and Get on with a healthy life!
