Following an auto accident, many patients receive a prescription for painkillers from their medical doctor. While this medication can temporarily relieve back pain, neck pain and headaches, painkillers cannot correct the underlying cause of this pain. In fact, the longer patients wait to receive chiropractic care following an accident, the more serious many injuries become. Your body will naturally try to heal itself, which can lead to the formation of scar tissue and more pain. The safest way to manage pain and recover is through chiropractic care.
Whiplash is the most common injury suffered by auto accident victims. During a car accident, the collision impact can "whip" the neck backward and forward. This causes damage to the cervical spine, as well as soreness and stiffness of the surrounding soft tissues.
Months, and even years, after an accident, whiplash suffers can still experience chronic neck pain, migraines, difficulty concentrating, and other problems. Chiropractic care, such as cervical spinal adjustments, can restore alignment to your body and relieve neck pain - no prescription medication required!
Many car accident victims also suffer from a herniated disc and lower back pain. When a disc slips out of alignment, it may put pressure on nearby nerves. This can be extremely painful, especially if the disc puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, which causes sciatica. Sciatica is characterized by shooting pain and numbness in the lower back, buttocks and legs.
The only way to relieve sciatica and lower back pain is by restoring alignment to the spine. Decompression treatments create a vacuum that helps move the herniated disc back into proper alignment. By correcting the underlying problem with decompression therapy, a chiropractor can help you live an active life without dependency on prescription painkillers.
Here at Ivey O'Sullivan Health Care Services PA, our chiropractors are proud to offer the latest in low back pain relief: the ACCU-SPINA IDD. The ACCU-SPINA is the only fully integrated spinal rehabilitation system that utilizes IDD therapy to correct herniated discs and manage degenerative disc pain and sciatica pain. Precise, computer-directed spinal rehabilitation treatment has helped hundreds of Spartanburg auto accident victims safely recover from low back pain. This decompression treatment is extremely popular with patients as a treatment for sciatica and back pain.
Our chiropractor may also recommend trigger point therapy as a complementary treatment for chiropractic care. After an auto accident, our muscles shorten and tighten due to altered patterns of movement in response to soft tissue injuries. Trigger point therapy relieves the tiny contractions in our muscles and tissues that cause pain, and restores flexibility and a full range of motion to our muscles.
Whether you suffer from back pain, neck pain or migraines, our chiropractors can help you manage this pain naturally without medication. Don't delay - visit our Spartanburg wellness center today! Call us at 864-583-3967 today.
