When you have car accident injuries, it is vital as you go forward that you consider getting chiropractic treatment. Dr. Kristian Mendyk and Dr. Derick Lajom at Mendyk Chiropractic in Perris, CA, and Moreno Valley provide personalized treatment for your particular injuries.
It doesn't take a high-velocity car accident to cause car accident injuries. Whiplash results from the forward and backward motion of the head, which hurts the neck, upper back, and even the lower back. The seatbelt can also cause shoulder and chest damage.
Massage therapy makes chiropractic modalities more effective by preparing the muscles to be receptive to treatment. It can also help release the trigger points that may have formed in the muscles. Relaxation can help with the pain that results from car accident injuries.
Muscles can be very sore and may spasm after an auto accident. Microcurrent therapy uses electric currents similar to those produced by the body to accelerate healing.
Cryotherapy uses cold to treat pain in the soft tissue. It numbs the pain and reduces inflammation to help healing happen in the area it is applied to.
When you are injured in a car accident, it can cause the vertebrae in the neck and back to be injured. If they become misaligned, it can cause pain, but it also hurts your body's ability to get messages from the brain to the injured area. Getting things back in alignment will aid the therapy your chiropractor recommends to help your pain to work better and more quickly.
Therapeutic exercise, especially stretches, can improve your healing between visits to the chiropractor. You will be given specific exercises for the area that is showing signs of injuries.
Ultrasound therapy focuses sound waves on areas that have been injured. It treats damage at the cellular level and treats pain and promotes healing.
If your discs have been injured by a car accident, traction can help with a herniated disc. The neck and the back are gently stretched to allow the disc to go back into the place where it belongs without resorting to surgery.
