When patients come to Michaux Family Chiropractic after an auto accident injury
, they are often looking for relief from neck pain
and back pain
they are experiencing. One of the most common injuries is whiplash, which occurs when the head and neck are thrown about during the impact of an accident. This jarring action can damage tissues, ligaments and muscles in both the neck and upper back. Other patients may experience shoulder pain, migraines, fatigue and joint dysfunction as a result of the accident. Nerves may become pinched or compressed by surrounding bones and muscles. The spine can also become misaligned.
Our team of chiropractors uses a variety of therapies to address these issues and provide relief. After an examination to determine the extent of damage, our doctor prescribes a treatment plan that is based on providing pain relief care, corrective care and wellness care. Through a course of spinal manipulation and adjustments, physical therapy, massage therapy and corrective exercises, our healthcare team works together to provide pain management, improve mobility and restore normal functioning. Physiotherapy treatments may include mechanical traction, cryotherapy and moist heat therapy to reduce inflammation and promote healing from within.
Treatment for Pinched Nerve and Headaches
Some people may go for days or sometimes weeks without feeling a specific type of pain following an accident or they may just have a general feeling of discomfort. It is important to seek care from our Clermont chiropractor
as soon as possible so we can conduct a thorough examination and look for any underlying injuries that may have gone unnoticed. Then, if necessary, our team can then provide a natural course of relief that helps the body heal itself. Are you experiencing some type of pain from an auto accident injury?
