Chiropractic care is a popular form of treatment often associated with recovery from an auto accident. These injuries are caused by the force created during the accident and it can cause your head and neck to move rapidly. This often results in whiplash or soft tissue injury. Depending on the severity of the accident, you may also begin to experience pain in your back, neck or shoulders.
At New Heights Chiropractic and Nutrition, Dr. Stef will conduct a full evaluation to determine the severity of your injury while creating a chiropractic plan to help you recover. Chiropractic care is an excellent option for treatment following an auto injury since it can treat muscular and soft tissue pain. Our goal is to get you back to being pain free normal activities as quickly as possible.
Dr. Stef will determine your treatment plan based off of the initial exam findings. These include orthopedic exams, the patient’s history, and mechanism of injury. It is not always an adjustment at the first visit depending on the injuries obtained from the accident. If I find any red flags in my examination I will recommend an x-ray, MRI, or both immediately before starting treatments. After receiving the results, we proceed with treatments depending on the injuries. Treatments typically last for 3-6 months depending on the severity of the injury.
We are able to treat a variety of different injuries often experienced during a car accident. These include whiplash, strain/sprains, muscle spasms, contusions, disc herniations, disc bulge, disc protrusions, and joint injuries.
