Chiropractors for Auto Accident Injuries
Injuries from car accidents can make it difficult for people to go about their daily lives. They can cause a great deal of pain, discomfort, and even mobility issues. While more serious car accident injuries may require surgery and long-term physical therapy, there are many treatment alternatives for mild to moderate injuries.
Many people don’t consider going to their chiropractor after a car accident, but a trained chiropractor can do wonders for pain management, muscle tension, and spine realignment. Through a combination of hands on manipulation, soft tissue techniques, and functional movement assessment, Dr. Marcon can help get you back on your feet!
Hands-on manipulation refers to direct contact with the spine or other problematic areas by a trained chiropractor. This method is primarily used to correct alignment issues with the spine, which can make it difficult to sit, stand, or move around comfortably. It also allows chiropractors to mitigate pain directly, without the need for invasive procedures or devices. Hands-on manipulation is one of the most common treatment methods for problems related to car accidents, like whiplash or a herniated disc.
Soft Tissue Techniques
Chiropractors use soft tissue techniques to reduce pain and increase the range of movement in muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Applying pressure to soft tissue can help your chiropractor diagnose, evaluate, and treat your condition. This method works by finding the areas in which you feel the most pain. Then, the chiropractor can use their hands to feel how the muscles and tendons move, allowing them to gauge the level of tension. Once they have evaluated the condition, pain level, and tension level of your soft tissue, they can begin applying pressure based on your specific needs.
Functional Movement Assessment
A functional movement assessment allows your chiropractor to test and evaluate the range of movement for various parts of your body. This assessment can test your ability to squat, bend over, or extend your limbs in a given direction. This will not only help your chiropractor better understand potential problem areas in your body, but also develop a specific regimen and treatment plan for you.
