Adjustments, or manipulation as they’re sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebra into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort.
The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident. When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can’t function at our peak. This form of auto accident injury care help solve this problem.
Intersegmental Traction is a treatment table used to induce motion into the spine and decrease pain. This table consists of rollers that gently roll up and down your spine while the table gently vibrates.
This therapy is very beneficial to the health of your spine by increasing the range of motion of your spine and also improving the circulation of the spinal fluid that covers the spinal cord and gives it its nutrition.
This is very helpful in preventing disc degeneration and “slipped discs.” This treatment is loved by most of or patients as most ask to take the table home with them after each treatment!
This type of stretching involves your reflexes and your brain’s natural resistance to muscle injury, allowing for deep stretches that improve your flexibility and range of motion.
PNF stands for Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation.
- Proprioceptive: Relating to stimuli connected with the body’s position or movement.
- Neuromuscular: Relating to the nerves and muscles.
- Facilitate: To make easy or easier.
In short, PNF stretching helps restore your nerves and muscles after they’ve been injured or strained.
Also known simply as “physical therapy”, our physiotherapy services help restore the body’s health, strength, and range of motion following an auto accident or any other event that caused traumatic injuries.
These types of injuries can result in long-term problems including chronic pain, limited range of motion, lower quality of life, and even sleep disorders like insomnia.
Physiotherapy involves a lot of healing methods like exercises, activities, stretches, and adjustments. Physiotherapy helps reduce your pain, strengthen your muscles, increase your range of motion, and even reduces your risk of future muscle injuries.
Our full-bodies approach to physiotherapy will get you on the road to recovery.
EMS—or, Electric Muscle Stimulation—is a relatively new form of auto accident injury care that works well when combined with chiropractic care and physiotherapy.
With the application of electrode receivers strategically placed on your back (targeting specific areas in the lower back, shoulders, and/or near the spine), EMS relieves pain and discomfort caused by tight, inflamed, and/or spasming muscles in the aftermath of serious back strain or injury.
Auto accident injuries typically cause muscles to chronically spasm or tighten, causing them constant aggravation.
When the muscles are overworked, recovery becomes more difficult and takes longer.
With EMS treatment, we can reduce muscle spasms and increase the speed and effectiveness of our auto accident injury care.
Therapeutic ultrasound has a wide range of uses. It can treat ulcers, blood clots, arthritis, and can also be used for auto accident injury care.
Our ultrasound therapy can reduce back pain, symptoms of whiplash, muscle strains, and many other injuries from auto accidents or similar incidents.
We apply a cool gel to the treatment area. This gel helps sound waves move through your skin and into your muscles. We then apply the ultrasound conduction device, which we move across your skin in order to conduct the ultrasound waves into the affected area.
Ultrasound is a painless process—you’re likely to feel a tingling sensation and some warmth, which most people describe as soothing. The long term benefits include pain and swelling relief, increased circulation, and a wider range of motion.
Your core strength is related to chiropractic care in that the core—involving muscles in the abdomen and those that branch off to the hips, lower back, and upper back—is a big factor in your posture and stability.
Core strengthening not only helps improve neck and back strength (and therefore enhances healing from injuries in these areas), but also improves the efficiency and effectiveness of our chiropractic care, physiotherapy, and other forms of auto accident injury care.
