Personal Injury

Whiplash is the most common by-product of a motor vehicular accident, whether it’s produced by a parking lot fender bender, rear ended accident or a head-on collision! It can also be vastly debilitating with far-reaching effects if left untreated.

Sprains & Strains

Strains and sprains affect soft tissues that support your musculoskeletal system. A strain is a type of injury to a muscle or connective tissue between a muscle and a bone, while a sprain affects the tissue that connects two bones together. Muscle sprains can be painful and affect your ability to move around like you normally would. A sprain can affect your ability to lift heavy objects, turn your head in certain directions or to sit or stand for long periods of time. The most common type of sprain or strain in a motor vehicle accident happens in the neck. is an ankle sprain, which can keep you from turning your head in certain directions and can cause pain, soreness, and swelling in the area.

Back Injuries

Many types of back injuries can occur during a motor vehicle accident or a slip and fall in the workplace. In addition to muscle sprains in the back, you could also injure your spine. Spinal injuries should always be taken seriously and treated as soon as possible. Damage to the vertebrae in the spine or to nearby nerves can lead to chronic pain and stiffness if not treated right away. A back injury suffered in the workplace can affect your ability to effectively do your job until the injury has healed.

Neck Injuries

Neck injuries can also occur due to accidents and affect your mobility and well-being. The spine in your neck has smaller vertebrae than other areas of the spinal column, which can make them more susceptible to injury. Misalignments of vertebrae and muscle strains in the neck can cause ‘mis-firing’ to from the brain to muscles and Vis versus. These disrupted pathways can cause pain, stiffness, and difficulty turning your head in certain directions as well as disrupting brain function all together ie. “Brain fog’. A spinal injury could also affect nearby nerve roots and cause neurological pain symptoms like tingling and numbness.

Joint Injuries

Joint injuries can occur during these accidents whether a slip and fall or motor vehicle accident. This will impact healthy functioning in your shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and ankles. If any of these joints are affected by an accident, you may be unable to perform your regular duties. A joint injury can be painful and cause swelling and inflammation in the area.

Reduce pain

In addition to treating the root cause of your symptoms, we will also want to address your pain and inflammation. Targeted chiropractic/therapeutic adjustments, cold and hot therapies, shockwave (sound wave therapy) and trigger point massage can help reduce pain in the affected area.

Regain Strength

After an injury, it is common to experience a loss of strength. This may be due to damage or injury to certain muscles or swelling and inflammation in the area. Targeted Chiropractic care will help you regain strength by promoting the healthy function of your supportive tissues like muscles, tendons, and ligaments. We may talk with you about stretches and exercises and even targeted nutritional protocols that can help you regain your strength after accident.  

Recovery Mobility

In our office we will also help you recover any lost mobility after an accident. Whether you suffered a back injury, head or neck injury in the workplace or in a motor vehicle accident, we can help you regain your range of motion.

It is an absolute must that you are thoroughly evaluated following any kind of auto accident or slip and fall. Any body part that’s jarred or thrown forward unexpectedly can sustain microscopic stretching and tearing of ligaments as well as blood vessels in the brain and the body. Unfortunately, the ones that support the head and neck are particularly vulnerable.

Since chiropractors specialize in sustaining the integrity of the nervous system, it just makes sense to make an appointment for a thorough evaluation following a collision.

Through years of experience, we know the brain and spinal devastation that can occur following a whiplash injury that’s left untreated. These traumas always cause initial pain, but then that same pain will eventually diminish. The “effects,” however, never leave, resulting in intermittent pain, stiffness, alterations in brain function, brain fog and loss of mobility, largely due to nervous system degeneration.

Our primary goal is to prevent any further brain and spinal degeneration from occurring in the future. It’s not difficult to initially ease the pain and inflammation that occurs with injury, but the challenge lies in trying to prevent future degeneration and the potential pitfalls of a chronic condition. There’s only one solution: following through with a full treatment plan for maximum recovery.
