Our spines are unique components of the human body. They are responsible for maintaining structure and movement throughout the body. Unfortunately, auto injuries almost always cause harm to the musculoskeletal system. Soft-tissue damage, muscle sprains or tears, and bruising are just some things we can’t see with the naked eye, especially when they happen to the spine. At Back in Motion Chiropractic in Carrollton, TX, we offer several treatment options to help patients restore their functionality and return to living without pain.
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
Chiropractic Care for Muscle Pain
Comprehensive chiropractic treatment does not include prescription pain medications for pain relief. However, after an auto accident, patients are screened 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 chiropractic care 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 and Spinal Stretching
Even though spinal adjustments are at the forefront of any good chiropractic treatment, it doesn’t mean that’s what you need depending on your condition. Instead, the nature of your exact injuries will tell us which treatments you need the most.
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.
Back in Motion Chiropractic is a modern clinic, headed by Dr. Pratik Soni, our chiropractor serving North Dallas, Carrollton, Plano, and the surrounding areas. If you need chiropractic care for a sports injury, chronic pain, neck pain, back pain, an auto accident injury, and treatment for a work injury or personal injury, you are in good hands.
Pain is not normal, and we understand that it can hinder your pursuit of a happy life in which you participate fully in activities you enjoy like sports and exercise. This is why we offer top of the line chiropractic care so you can regain your range of motion and get rid of pain with no surgery or medication.
What Is a Personal Injury?
A personal injury is any injury resulting from slips, falls, or even auto accidents. Some common personal injuries are whiplash, soft tissue injuries, back injuries, neck injuries, and musculoskeletal injuries.
These injuries can affect the quality of your life and can leave you in a state that makes you need treatment to keep pain away so you can take part in activities of your choosing, or get back to doing what you used to do before the injury struck.
Seek the help of a chiropractor for personal injury treatment regardless of whether pain is present or not. Unseen injuries may fail to surface for days or even weeks after the even, so it is prudent to be evaluated by a professional and fix any issues before they develop.
Why See a Chiropractor for Personal Injury?
There are three main reasons you need to visit a chiropractor after experiencing a personal injury and they include:
Faster Recovery Rate
A chiropractor will help alleviate any headaches, pain, muscle soreness, and more. Getting a personal assessment means that you will get to the root cause of your pain and it will be treated effectively, once and for all.
Restored Range of Motion
Spinal alignment will mean that you can easily move around as well as perform activities like brushing your teeth and picking up items from the ground. It may not sound like much, but you miss these abilities a lot when they’re gone.
Non-Invasive and Drug-Free Treatment
There are no surgeries or medications included in chiropractic care. Our chiropractor uses manual therapies to apply force to the area in pain and stimulate internal injury to reduce inflammation and pain.
All athletes, whether they are amateurs or professionals, will get a sports injury at some point. Contact and impact in different sporting activities are the main causes of common sports injuries. Muscles, ligaments, and tendon overuse due to repetitive actions can leave athletes vulnerable to more sports-related injuries.
At Back in Motion Chiropractic, we have decades of experience providing high-quality chiropractic services that athletes need. We serve patients from North Dallas, Carrollton, Plano, and the surrounding areas. If you have been injured on or off the field, Dr. Soni is here to help.
Chiropractic care is highly effective, non-invasive, and takes a holistic approach for sports injuries. We mainly focus on the nerves, ligaments, spine, tendons, joints, and muscles. Chiropractic care is effective in treating knee pain, hand twists, backache, and neck pain, among others. Treatment plans may include one or a combination of the following treatment modalities:
Massage therapy – Increases blood flow, treats minor injuries in addition to preparing the body for chiropractic adjustments.
Spinal adjustments – Involves moving the spinal discs into their proper positions to reduce pressure on the surrounding joints and muscles.
Spinal decompression therapy – Involves gently stretching the spine and moving it to its normal position by using a specialized mechanical table.
Acupuncture – Uses hair-thin needles to eliminate energy blockage at specific points in the body.
Laser therapy – Utilizes light energy to heal soft tissue injuries beneath the skin.
Other Treatments – We man incorporate physical therapy, stretches, strengthening exercises, heat/ice therapy, and ultra-sound as part of the treatment plan.
As a sports injury chiropractor, Dr. Soni employs a multi-faceted treatment approach in his practice. Each treatment technique works synergistically with the others to eliminate pain and discomfort, increase mobility, and speed up the recovery process.
