When you are injured in a car accident, you know you should take your car to an autobody shop to get your car fixed. You might even know that it’s a good idea to retain a personal injury attorney to represent your interests. But, who do you go to for whiplash injuries? If the immediate injury is severe enough, of course, the ambulance is going to take you to the emergency room as a first response. At the emergency room, they will check you out, and clear you of life-threatening injuries. They’re not there to manage your care through the three phases of healing. Where then, do you go for whiplash pain management?
The answer lies at the office of the doctor who has been specifically trained to care for good recovery of spinal trauma. This is a doctor who is trained in differential diagnosis, neurological examination, and X-ray interpretation. This is a doctor who is trained in outcomes measures, report writing, and disability evaluation. Sound like a lot? There are many nuances in handling a personal injury. Your personal injury attorney handles the legal battles, and your chiropractic physician handles your healing process.
If you have pain from soft tissue injury and spinal dysfunction, you may want to take a pill temporarily to handle the pain, but you’ll also want to manage the injury with a mechanical, conservative technique. This is where our chiropractic care comes in.
Chiropractic care is conservative care that treats your injury with the goal of restoring normal spinal motion and strength, while working to reduce the painful swelling in the soft tissues of the neck and back. Chiropractic care reduces muscle spasms, provides a pain relieving reflex, and restores the full articulation of your joints.
If you have neck or back pain from an injury acute or chronic, give our office a call for a consultation. We can be reached at the number that you see on this web page.
