Advanced Chiropractic Spine and Sports Injury Center places special emphasis on the evaluation, care and treatment of people who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents. “Whiplash” as it has been nicknamed, can be a very traumatic type of injury, with many components that are felt immediately as well as numerous ones not yet known. Our office goal is to determine the extent of those injuries and treat them to return all patients to their best level of health possible.
Motor vehicle trauma injuries can be wide ranging and complex. Not only can it cause musculoskeletal injuries from head to toe, it can also produce devastating injuries to the brain and nervous system as well. More times than not, a person injured this way may not even realize this has taken place until months or even years following their accident. By that time treatment options are limited and usually their case has settled. That is why, no matter how “minor” your accident seems, you should be evaluated as soon as you can!
Chiropractic care has been demonstrated to be one of the best methods for treatment following an auto injury. Specific adjustive procedures along with physiotherapy and corrective stretching and strengthening exercises are vital in the return to normal health for victims of auto injuries as quickly as possible.
Referrals to other health care professionals are also important if the need extends beyond chiropractic care. The office of Advanced Chiropractic Spine and Sports Injury Center believes in this philosophy and works with all of its patients in making sure that the right doctors are consulted and referred to as the need arises. Our goal is to make sure all of our patients get the best and most complete care possible.
