Chiropractic adjustments are one of the most common procedures used by chiropractors to help their patients. It is useful for reducing pain and also for maintaining general good health. When the spine is misaligned, messages can't get through from the brain to the other areas of the body. This misalignment is known as subluxation and correcting it will help with getting things back on the right course.
Electric stimulation is not just one therapy, we offer three different types and Dr. Wilson will discuss them with you and recommend which one will be best for your condition. He offers electric muscle stimulation, interferential current therapy and microcurrent therapy.
Hot pack/cold packs
In the immediate aftermath of most injuries, including whiplash from an auto accident, cold packs can help to decrease swelling and pain and will be used by an auto injury chiropractor. Next comes the heat that helps you relax and feel better. Both of these have a role in the healing after an auto accident.
Intersegmental traction roller bed
This specialty designed table has rollers that travel from the neck down the full length of the spine. Patients lie on the table on their back and this gentle procedure helps the vertebrae to open up and put less pressure on discs and nerves.
Many of the issues that develop from whiplash are improved with the use of acupuncture. It is effective for headaches, neck and back pain and anxiety which being in an auto accident can cause. This ancient Chinese practice uses thin needles placed at strategic locations to help with the pain. We offer dry needle therapy, but acupuncture can also be done with lasers, magnets, or electric pulses.
The stress of an auto accident is the perfect time to have a therapeutic massage. It can help to get the knots out of the muscles and allow you to relax. When you are relaxed, other therapies can work better.
