A small pain or discomfort, following an accident, can grow into far greater health problems over time. Many health care practitioners may recommend taking painkillers following a car accident. Masking car accident symptoms with pain pills; eventually may require stronger and stronger pain medication. It is common to find that people who have not had chiropractic care still in pain months and even years after their case has settled. At Westside Chiropractic our first concern is your long term health following an accident, as they say “health is wealth.” It is not possible to settle any case for enough money to cover the costs of a lifetime of pain and suffering.
During an accident your neck has been whipped back and forth damaging the nerves, bones, muscles and the ligaments that make up your spinal cord. This puts bones out of alignment and often herniating several discs though out the spine.
Dr. Owen will do a complete orthopedic and neurological evaluation of your injuries and a complete set of x-rays to determine and document the extent of your injuries. She will then explain your injuries and plan of treatment to get you back on the road to recovery and back to your life as soon as possible.
Treatment following a car accident usually consists of gentle chiropractic adjustments to restore normal alignment of your spine and help muscles and ligaments to heal naturally. Cold laser and trigger paint therapy to relieve sore muscles; flexion/distraction therapy to help treat joints in the lower back and relieve pain of herniated discs; electrotherapy, ultrasound and more.
