Driving can be dangerous. Even if you are being cautious, it only takes someone else checking their texts to cause an accident involving you. Even minor fender benders can result in whiplash and spinal misalignment. Mt. Orab Chiropractic specializes in car accident injuries. Dr. Stephen Pendell often uses a combination of chiropractic adjustments, medical massage therapy, and muscle stimulation to assist in the best recovery outcome available.
Car Accident Injuries
Car accident injuries are unique because the injuries may be caused without any participation from you. You may have literally been sitting in place when someone else hit your vehicle out of nowhere.
Car accident injuries can be pretty routine to doctors. We have been able to utilize certain treatments, alone or as a combination, for the optimal results of recovery. The most common treatments include:
In our backs, the spinal column works because the discs and vertebrae stack perfectly on one another. These vertebrae and discs do not take much to come out of alignment. A sudden impact, fall, or even sleeping wrong can cause misalignment, causing nerve impingements and overtaxing the supportive soft tissues. If you were in a car accident, your spine will most likely be out of alignment and need to be adjusted.
Car accident injuries can lead to a lot of muscle stiffness and loss of mobility. Medical massage therapy helps to relax such tension from the injury and to return the muscle tissue to its original strength and flexibility.
By applying electrical current into the tissue, electrical stimulation therapy works by inducing targeted flexing. This leads to a forced relaxation of the muscle and tissue. This is often used to treat muscle spasms, stiffness, and soreness.
