Chiropractors use rehabilitative methods and a hands on approach to healing. We are the leading experts on the spine and musculoskeletal system, our exams can reveal objective findings within your injured areas that may not be visable on x-ray, MRI or CT scan, to better treat and document injuries for third party interests.
Accident victims can develop immediate symptoms of pain, or they can have a later onset of pain in hours, days, weeks or even months. They can have what is called compensatory pain in one area of the body due to an injury in another part of the body. They need to be addressed by a chiropractic even after you have seen a paramedic, emergency room, or family medical doctor.
Whiplash injury to the neck or cervical sprain/strain, is by the far the most common personal injury that results from a car accident, but other major areas of injury can be the mid back, the lower back and joints of the extremities.
Sprains and strains are referred to soft tissue injuries. Soft tissue injury includes muscles, tendons and ligaments that are attached to the spine as well as extremities. Soft tissue injuries for the most part are invisible on x-rays and often over looked. Soft tissue injuries can cause severe debilitating pain after a car accident or other traumatic injury. Worse yet, if a soft tissue injury is not directly addressed with proper rehabilitation and left untreated, an unresolved injured muscle and other soft tissue can end up causing chronic pain for months or even years following the accident.
We provide treatment of soft tissue and joint injuries, especially of the spine.
Injured muscles heal with scar tissue in a way that leaves them weaker, less elastic and prone to re-injury and lasting pain. Active and passive therapies administered Dr. Chance can help restore muscular strength, flexibility and normal function by correcting alignment and reducing potential scar tissue formation. This will allow the soft tissue to heal with less chance of future pain and dysfunction.
