Chiropractic Care After an Auto Accident
Chiropractic care can be vital after a car accident. It isn’t always immediately apparent when the spine’s vertebrae lose their proper alignment, but when they do, it can interfere with the healing processes anywhere throughout the body.
If any of your vertebrae are found to be out of alignment, the doctor will use a precise technique to apply gentle pressure to correct the misalignment. Patients often report immediate pain relief after a spinal adjustment.
Other Treatments for Auto-Related Injuries
Spinal decompression can be helpful after a car accident if your injury involves the lower back or neck. The procedure involves relaxing on a special table that is used to gently stretch the spine, releasing pressure on the discs and allowing them to regain their natural form.
If one or more of your muscles is causing you pain as the result of an auto accident, trigger point injections can provide relief. The injection contains sarapin, a natural anti-inflammatory derived from the pitcher plant. The doctor injects the sarapin into the muscle’s trigger point, where it relaxes the muscle, eases inflammation, and promotes healing.
Laser therapy is an effective treatment for many types of injuries. A low-intensity beam of light is directed through the skin into the injured tissue in a painless process that stimulates the surrounding cells, enhancing the healing process.
Our team offers physical therapy to alleviate pain and increase mobility. Physical therapy includes exercise solutions based on each individual’s assessment, diagnosis, and goals. Physical therapy sessions will be performed under the supervision of our highly trained therapists. The exercises instructed during physical therapy sessions help to promote healing and reduce the likelihood of future injuries.
MyACT uses acoustic waves that target tissue at varying depths. It compresses and manipulates tissue resulting in a focused and precise deep tissue massage. The results of the mechanical stimulus delivered by MyACT can lead to increased circulation and pain relief– key components in the healing process.
