Acupuncture Helps Whiplash Injuries A


t Winterhaven Health Center, Dr. Conlee has used acupuncture for the treatment of whip-


lash injuries very successfully for many years. Acu- puncture reduces muscle spasms and pain, al- lowing patients to enter the rehabilitation stage quickly and reduces the need for medication. Dr. Conlee also performs spinal adjustments as needed as well as other physiotheraputic modalities. In a


recent study, one group of patients with whiplash was treated with medication, physiotherapy and acupuncture and a second group was treated with medication and physiotherapy. The first group healed more quickly than the second. Dr. Conlee has treated the University of Arizona’s Men’s and Women’s


Ultimate Frisbee Teams and the University of Arizona Wildcat Rugby Team using acupuncture. Athletes experience much less pain and a faster recov- ery using acupuncture in conjunction with other modalities. Injuries that are treated with great success include strained or pulled muscles such as ham- strings, calf, shoulder, back and neck strains; sprained ligaments in the knees, hips, ankles, feet, shoulders, elbows, wrists and even ribs and collarbone.
