Chiropractic Care for Car Accident Injury
Chiropractic Care: Chiropractic services can be vital after an auto accident. It isn’t always immediately apparent when the spine’s vertebrae lose their proper alignment. When they do, it can interfere with the healing processes anywhere throughout the body. If any of your vertebrae are found to be out of alignment, the chiropractor will use a precise technique to apply gentle pressure to correct the misalignment. Patients often report immediate pain relief after a spinal adjustment.
Spinal Decompression: Spinal decompression therapy can be helpful after a car accident if your injury involves the lower back or neck. The procedure involves relaxing on a special table that is used to gently stretch the spine. Releasing pressure on the discs allow them to regain their natural form.
Trigger Point Injections: If one or more of your muscles is causing you pain, trigger point injections can provide relief. The injection contains sarapin, a natural anti-inflammatory derived from the pitcher plant. The doctor injects the sarapin into the muscle’s trigger point. It relaxes the muscle, eases inflammation, and promotes healing.
Laser Therapy: Laser treatments are an effective treatment for many types of injuries. A low-intensity beam of light is directed through the skin into the injured tissue. It's painless process that stimulates the surrounding cells, enhancing the healing process.
Regenerative Treatments for Auto Related Injuries
Regenerative Medicine: The natural growth factors, Hyaluronic acid, Collagens, Chemokines, Amino acids and more found in the treatments used in regenerative medicine consist of very young components sourced from Wharton’s jelly, found in the umbilical cords of newborn babies. The tissue is ethically collected in a painless procedure. It does not cause any discomfort for the mother or baby. Donors are carefully screened in advance to ensure only the highest quality regenerative tissue is collected. When these vibrant young natural growth factors, cytokines, etc. are injected into the site of injury, they deliver a powerful boost to your body’s natural capacity to regenerate damaged tissue.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections: Platelet-rich plasma injections are another highly effective form of regenerative medicine. No donor tissue is required. The injection is made from a small amount of your own blood — resulting in a lower cost treatment. The platelets in our blood contain a high concentration of cytokines and growth factors. When concentrated further into platelet-rich plasma, they provide enhancement to the body’s regenerative processes, promoting more rapid recovery from injury.
