Auto Accidents can do a number on your body. From whiplash to recurring headaches, both of our chiropractic centers have extensive knowledge and experience in managing pain and discomfort specifically from auto accident injuries. Rehabilitation of the spine is one the most effective tools in healing from an auto accident, and our attentive and caring team ensures that you get the best in chiropractic care.
Our experienced team of Chiropractors uses adjustments, otherwise known as spinal manipulation, to improve spinal motion, and thus, the body’s overall physical function. Neck and back pain, extremity pain, and headaches can all be attributed to a spine that is out of alignment. Realignment of the spine can improve nerve function, immune function and posture, allow for more restful sleep, relieve stress, neck and back pain, and alleviate headaches just to name a few.
Electric stimulation, or E-Stim as we call it, is a technique used to contract muscles via electrical pulses. E-stim increases blood circulation and range of motion, decreases inflammation and pain, and improves overall function of the muscles and joints. In conjunction with heat, E-stim proves to be even more effective, promoting cartilage metabolism in damaged areas. It has shown to be an effective therapeutic option for our patients.
This therapeutic method gently stretches and separates the vertebrae in the neck or back in order to reduce the pressure on compressed nerves from the spinal cord. It also stretches the muscles and connective tissues of the spine and enhances circulation and exchange of fluids within the discs.
The traction table is a patient favorite at our offices. Some people liken it to a gentle massage bed and is a great way to relax a tense body. Its benefits include reduced stress, relaxed muscles, restoration of normal spinal curves and motion, improved balance and strength, and increased circulation of spinal fluids.
Ultrasound is a type of deep heat therapy we use that works to stimulate healing of the soft tissues and joints. It helps by reducing pain, stiffness, and spasms by increasing the blood flow to those tissues.
The goal of corrective exercises is to strengthen the muscles that support the torso and spine so that they function properly. Building the necessary strength allows each muscle to do the job it was designed to do, avoiding overload on certain muscles that may try to pick up the slack of weaker ones. We have several different corrective exercises that we do in-office that focus on strengthening, as well as increasing mobility.
