After an auto accident, you’ll need medical treatment — especially for joint and soft-tissue injuries to your neck. Chiropractic care is a safe, non-invasive way to diagnose these types of injuries, manage your pain and address the underlying problems causing your condition. That is an impressive range of treatment goals to advance through a single form of therapy.
Many patients find chiropractic care manageable and accessible. Please read on for a deeper explanation for some of the functions it serves to treat of whiplash.
Chiropractic care seeks to treat the causes of your injuries. You might think this goes without saying. Unfortunately, many forms of treatment cannot claim the same.
It is true that some symptom treatments — such as prescription painkillers — may provide temporary relief. At best, these are addictive stopgap measures with dangerous side effects. At worst, the lack of pain as a natural warning sign could lead to complications and further injuries.
At PhysMED, we commit to practices that safely manage whiplash pain and promote true recovery. The adaptability of chiropractic care and its high positive outcome rate makes it a perfect fit for this philosophy.
Part of your doctor’s role in treating your whiplash after an auto accident will be to help you get over your fear. Fear is a natural reaction to whiplash. Everyone worries that high levels of pain could indicate injuries are getting worse. Everyone worries that certain types of motion — especially those that generate discomfort — could be dangerous.
We help you conquer this fear and doubt so you can move forward with confidence. To make sure your treatment remains safe and positive, we also listen to how you feel every step of the way during your whiplash treatment.
At PhysMED, we recognize it is difficult to recover when you lack a full picture of your medical condition. Our job is to help you understand the complex nature of your whiplash injuries.
In fact, chiropractic care is inherently educational. Nearly every patient learns something about subjects related to recovery, such as anatomy, biokinetics and lifestyle health. We take the time to teach you not only what you need to do to recover, but also how and why these practices help over the long term.
One of the things our doctor’s value most as at PhysMED is the opportunity to be a part of real, positive change in our patients’ lives. You will get to see the change as well. An integral part of our treatment is keeping track of and celebrating your progress.
At PhysMED, we consider each case individually and tailor whiplash treatment plans after your auto accident accordingly. Your exercises, stretches and other therapeutic elements will be completely unique to the type and degree of your injury.
