How does an auto injury affect your body?
One of the most common injuries to the body after suffering from an auto injury is to the soft tissue. Soft tissue includes ligaments, muscles, spinal discs, tendons, and more. Spinal compressions and inflammation can affect nerves as well. Scar tissue can also accumulate in any of these areas causing reduced mobility, lasting pain, and affecting nearly everything surrounding it.
Find relief with auto injury chiropractic care.
Dr. Bob Gregory uses a variety of different therapy methods in order to treat the underlying cause of your symptoms. Symptoms never exist in a bubble, and identifying the root cause of your condition is always the first step. After a thorough intake and any required testing, treatments vary depending on the patients. Some of the methods used to treat automotive injuries like whiplash may involve the use of:
- Spinal Manipulation – This corrects imbalances in the positioning of spinal vertebrae and helps to restore full range of motion and reduce pain. Nerves may also be compressed when vertebrae are improperly aligned. Correcting the subluxations can alleviate many of a patients’ symptoms.
- Stretch and ROM exercises – Manually stretching specific muscle groups and instructing the patient in how to perform range of motion exercises can lead to immediate and long-term relief. This allows weakened muscles to strengthen and rebuild over time.
- Trigger Point and Massage Therapy – Massage and trigger point therapy work to relieve tightening muscles. Trigger areas that may be affecting other parts of the body see specific on/off pressure and massage. Massage also aids in the breaking up of internal scar tissue that may be constricting muscles or affecting the nervous system.
