Currently ACC covers acupuncture treatment for accidents causing physical injury. This could be a fall, a sporting accident (like falling off your mountain bike) or a twisted ankle/broken bone to name a few. Once you have your ACC45 number which you can receive from your Doctor or Physio (within the last year), then you are eligible to have Acupuncture treatment covered by ACC. This can be in conjunction with your physio treatment or any other treatment that you are having for the injury.
Acupuncture is very effective for physical trauma and has excellent recovery results.
