Dealing with Pain from a Motor Vehicle Personal Injury?
According to the latest study from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 2.3 million people suffered injuries from a car accident in 2013. Injuries that are sustained in a car accident, whether from soft-tissue damage, whiplash or broken bones, often cause pain that can last for a very long time. Pain and healing time can be reduced through the use of medical massage, chiropractic care, strength training and physical therapy. These processes work with the body to help a person heal naturally.
Evaluation of Personal Injury After a Car Accident
At Advanced Back and Neck Care, we treat more than just the spine. Whether a person’s hip, shoulder or even wrist was wounded in an accident, we can help. We will review X-rays, MRIs and other diagnostic imagery to determine the extent of an injury and create a comprehensive treatment plan for the patient.
Treat Every Car Accident Seriously
Auto accidents do not always cause immediate pain. It can take hours or even days for an injury to reveal itself after an automobile accident. It is more likely that injuries will be immediately evident during a high-speed crash because the force of the impact is so harsh. However, when a person is involved in a low-speed accident, the g-force of a crash at a rate as low as six to twelve miles per hour is enough to cause injuries.
How Chiropractic and Physical Therapy Can Help
Manual therapies, such as chiropractic and physical therapy, focus on manipulating and aligning the body in ways that allow the body to heal on its own. These practices promote the body’s ability to heal using different methods. In chiropractic, the spine, neck or other body part is realigned using a hands-on technique performed by the chiropractor. With physical therapy, the therapist teaches the patient how to use exercise in proper form so the body has the strength to properly heal. These practices are often used together as a whole-person healing approach.
Soft Tissue Rehabilitation
Myofascial release, stretching, trigger point release, range of motion exercises and massage therapy also provide benefits to someone who has been injured in an auto accident. These techniques work to induce relaxation, decrease physical stress, reduce pain and enhance natural function of the body. Medical massage improves blood flow and encourages the soft tissues to relax, inducing the rehabilitation of injured soft tissues.
Personalized Home Care Programs
Advanced Back and Neck Care believes that care continues at home, which is why we develop a personalized program that the patient is able to utilize between visits. An individualized program encourages active healing by helping the patient regain strength and restore mobility by using techniques tailored to improve the specific injury.
Like massage and chiropractic, ultrasound therapy, electrical stimulation, heat and ice can each play a significant role in the healing process. A person’s body suffers a significant amount of trauma when they are involved in a car accident. Therapeutic modalities work with other healing methods to retrain muscles, reduce pain and, like massage, promote increased circulation and decrease the physical memory of the trauma.

Advanced Back and Neck Care will happily work with a patient’s insurance company.
