Educating you, your loved ones and your employer is an important aspect of guiding you to full recovery and return to work. The importance of education is made very clear in the NYS Workers Compensation Guidelines, therefore, we have numerous education options for our patients, starting with conversations with your doctor, but also including a lecture component to our "Intensive Spine Stability Rehab Program", and our online workers compensation education video that will be uploaded in the near future.

Acupuncture can be very effective for accident-related neck and back pain and stiffness. In NY State, acupuncture is a covered service for these conditions, and simply requires a referral from your current medical provider.
