Violent crimes happen more often than we realize, and while we know that they can have a severe effect on the victim’s mental and emotional state, we often forget how devastating physical injuries can also be.
If you have been a victim of a violent crime and need someone that you can trust, our doctors have the experience to help you recover from your injuries with a wide variety of safe and non-invasive treatment options available, including:
- Chiropractic Care: Chiropractic adjustments are an alternative treatment option for those who suffer from a range of ailments affecting the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic care focuses on the spine, and while your injury may not be directly related to the spine, the spinal cord affects every area of the body. A gentle realignment can ensure that vertebrae are in their correct positions, allowing the body to restore its balance. Being in this state enables the rest of the body to repair injury more quickly and with ease.
- Spinal Decompression: Spinal Decompression is another chiropractic treatment available to help stretch the spine. A gentle technique that enables the discs in the spine to return to their original state. This procedure helps to relieve pain especially associated with the low back and neck.
- Regenerative Cell Therapy: Regenerative medicine is becoming more popular due to its long-lasting relief and rapid repair of all types of injuries. Regenerative cell therapy uses mesenchymal cells, which have high levels of cytokines, peptides, and growth factors. These young and healthy cells are found in Wharton’s jelly, a substance collected from the umbilical cord tissue of newborn infants.
The cells are donated and obtained at the time of scheduled C-section births. When the cells are injected into an injured area, they stimulate the body’s natural healing ability, quickly relieving pain at the source and repairing damage.
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Injections: PRP is another form of regenerative therapy; however, this treatment utilizes your own blood. A blood sample is taken during your appointment and spun through what is called a centrifuge. This process separates the platelets from the rest of the blood sample. Once the platelets are collected, they are then injected into the site of the injury, which stimulates the body’s natural repair response, reducing pain and repairing damaged tissue.
Regenerative treatments not only have relatively fast results, but they also have longer-lasting effects than that of traditional medications or surgical procedures, without the associated pain or lengthy downtime.
Depending on the type of injury you suffered due to violent crime, more than one form of treatment may be recommended. Our doctors will work with you extensively and assess your symptoms, developing a strategy for treatment that suits your individual needs. Getting a proper diagnosis is the first step to your recovery.
Once you and the doctor have come up with a plan, you can begin treatments and return to feeling like yourself again without the burden of pain.
