Auto injuries can create problems within the spine and musculoskeletal system. Soft tissue damage, muscle sprains, tears, and other problems are not always visible to the naked eye but can create long-term pain and dysfunction. Our multifaceted treatment approach is designed to address these problems in order to restore your quality of life.
Common Auto Injuries
After experiencing an auto accident injury, you may not notice some injuries until several days or weeks after the accident. Some injuries that may not manifest right away include:
- Muscle Strains
- Disc Damage
- Pinched Nerves
Physiotherapy Care for Auto Injuries
Comprehensive physiotherapy treatment does not include prescription pain medications for pain relief. However, after an auto accident, we screen patients to understand their medical history, pain levels, and the source of their pain. We will provide a thorough analysis to understand a patient’s current condition fully. We also offer X-ray testing when needed.
We use our physiotherapy approach to treat conditions caused by car accidents including back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, and more. The initial screenings show us precisely what is causing your pain. Armed with this information, we know what needs to be done to make it stop. Our chiropractor will then create a customized treatment plan unique to the patient’s needs. Not everyone has the same condition and having a personalized recovery program helps patients with a faster recovery.
Spinal Adjustments & Spinal Stretching
Spinal stretching helps relieve the pressure in the spine’s discs and relieves tension that otherwise won’t occur on its own. Inflammation is common after an auto accident injury as the body moves to heal itself. Our targeted spinal stretching works with your body to accelerate this healing process.
Massage Therapy Is Different at Our Office
Instead of full-body relaxation massages you might typically experience in other therapeutic settings, we specialize in targeted massage therapy to help relieve your back pain, neck pain, or shoulder pain. Our chiropractor uses massage therapy techniques found in sports rehabilitation and deep-tissue work to help these areas of the body heal.
