Car accident injuries can sideline you for weeks or even months. Even doing simple things can be painful. A chiropractor is a great option to go to get on the road to recovery. Dr. Michael Wilson of Kosak Chiropractic in Fairfield, CA will treat your injuries with a variety of chiropractic therapies.
When you have been in an auto accident you may feel pain and stiffness right away, or it may take a few days. Don't delay making an appointment with Dr. Wilson. The sooner you get treatment, the better chance you have for a quick recovery from your car accident injuries.
Massage therapy can help to loosen stiff and tender muscles. Whiplash can make for very tense and painful soft tissues and getting a therapeutic massage can help to make the painful areas more receptive to other therapies that Dr. Wilson will use to help with car accident injuries.
Whiplash can cause a lot of soft tissue stress, but it can also do damage to the vertebrae in the neck and back. The damage can be as simple as a misalignment or as complex as a ruptured disc. Messages need to get from the brain to the extremities and organs and if misalignment exists, things aren't able to operate the way they should and overall health can suffer.
Ice pack cryotherapy
Most people realize the benefit of placing a cold pack on a sprain or twist. Cold can help to reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain in the immediate aftermath of an injury. It can also help with pain long after the initial injury by numbing pain and reducing muscle spasms.
Electrical muscle stimulation
Getting tight and painful muscles to relax is part of treating car accident injuries. By using low levels of electric current, the muscles can reach a state of relaxation. It is painless and effective in treating muscle strain.
The use of ultrasound therapy can provide deep tissue recovery for injuries at a cellular level. The doctor uses a handheld device that uses heat to accelerate the healing process and discourage the formation of scar tissue.
Therapeutic exercise is targeted at your specific injuries and will help to promote recovery at home when between office visits. Stretches are of particular benefit to many car accident injuries.
