Per your request, one member of our chiropractic team can be your primary treating doctor, evaluate your personal injury, prescribe an individualized treatment plan, begin treatment, conduct periodic evaluations and administer your final exam.
Chiropractic manual therapy is intended for individuals with a diagnosis of different mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine and extremities. Chiropractors use a variety of physical modalities and procedures, in conjunction with manipulation to enhance healing. Upon examination and if clinically indicated they may preform spinal and extremity manual manipulation. Chiropractors are able to treat neck, back, and extremity injuries to help with soft tissue pain and injury recovery. Chiropractic treatment combined with massage therapy to relax the muscles leads to an effective treatment offering short and long term pain relief. Chiropractic treatment is an important step to recovery of all types of personal injuries. Complementing medicine with physical treatment of muscles and joints through chiropractic care may be the fastest way to recovery.
Often, individuals who have been injured in a car or other physical accidents develop muscle pain and stiffness making it difficult to perform normal activities of daily living. This discomfort, on top of other injuries, can become a serious issue. Some individuals experience indicators of whiplash injuries right away, such as blurred vision, headaches, joint pain, dizziness, reduced range-of-motion, and extremity pain. Whiplash can also result in neck, back and muscle injuries, ligament problems and disc damage. Other individuals may not experience any serious injuries right away and may think they are just “sore” after the accident, when serious injuries could be forming. If left untreated, these issues can continue to cause other additional serious health problems. In fact, you may not think you have been injured after a car accident, and then start to experience discomfort or headaches several months after the fact. This is why you should visit our office for a complete and comprehensive evaluation.
