Chiropractor for Auto Injuries & Whiplash in Beaver

Beaver Auto Injury, Neck Pain and Whiplash

Chiropractic can help with Beaver Auto Injuries.

Our chiropractors specialize in the treatment of spinal sprain/strain injuries, often called whiplash or acceleration/deceleration injuries. These injuries are usually caused by hyperextension and hyper-flexion of the spine during auto accidents. They can affect the neck, mid back and low back regions. If treated soon enough, inflammation can usually be reduced and scar tissue minimized.

Often the patient is left with loss of curvature in the cervical spine, inflammation, instability of the spine, spinal misalignment, strained muscles, sprained ligament damage and sometimes bulging or herniated discs. These contributing factors may cause neck and back pain, headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, shoulder pain, pain into the arm or hands and reduced ability to turn the head or trunk.

Treatment

Once inflammation has resolved and spinal stability has been confirmed, manipulation is then introduced for mobilization. Physical therapy is used to reduce muscle spasm and strengthen stabilizers to help restore function. Below is a description of the phases of treatment your patients would experience in our office.

Phase 1: Acute Care

Phase 1 is characterized by inflammation as the body attempts to repair itself after injury. If left untreated, inflammation becomes excessive or uncontrolled and can lead to delayed healing, pain and chronic inflammation. Objective:

  • Reduce discomfort, swelling and muscle spasm
  • Improve range of motion
  • Prevent scar tissue

Treatment:

  • Chiropractic manipulation (light force only)
  • Passive therapeutic modalities
  • Ice
  • ADL (Activities of Daily living)

Phase 2: Sub-Acute Care, Repair

Phase 2 accelerates after pain and swelling are controlled. During this time, the body continues to regenerate cells and collagen, as well as develop scar tissue. Objective:

  • Improve range of motion
  • Support joint function
  • Promote healing (specifically soft tissue reconstruction)

Treatment:

  • Chiropractic manipulation
  • Modalities
  • Ice/Heat
  • Nutrition

Phase 3: Rehabilitative Phase

The purpose of our functional restoration program is to restore joint mobility, muscular strength, endurance and conditioning, as well as cardiovascular fitness leading to restoration of the ability to perform specific functional tasks such as lifting, bending, twisting and tolerance to prolonged static positioning. Objective:

  • Restore function
  • Muscle and ligament strengthening
  • Strengthen spinal stabilizers
  • Increase balance and coordination

Treatment:

  • Core strengthening and exercises
  • Balance and coordination exercises
  • Endurance Training
  • Cardiovascular Fitness

Phase 4: Wellness

Wellness in the form of correcting spinal misalignment, improving ADLs, lifestyle changes, diet and exercise are the foundation of a healthy spine. Objective:

  • Transition to a home exercise program.
  • Emphasis is placed on weight loss
  • Cardiovascular exercise implementation
  • Nutritional counseling
