Pain Management, Pain Relief, and Recovery After Auto Accident Injury
Chiropractic care is an essential part of follow-up for any auto accident injury. Even before you need pain relief, your chiropractor can diagnose and start treatment for damage that often goes unnoticed for days or even weeks after a crash. Anytime you are involved in an auto accident in the Williamsport and Lycoming County areas, make an appointment with Advanced Pain Management & Rehab. Our team of a medical doctor (MD) and a chiropractor (DC) offers you the very best in pain diagnosis, pain treatment, and pain relief. Here are three things Dr. Robinson and Dr. Brian want you to know about pain relief after an auto accident.
The best time for pain relief is now
The effects of whiplash after a car accident or the consequences of a work injury can take days or weeks to become obvious. A car accident, a work injury, or a personal injury can cause microscopic tears in muscle tissue. These tears cause little or no pain or stiffness right away. But as they heal, they can make the muscle stiff, and pull adjacent muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones out of alignment. Whiplash, for instance, can cause the muscles in the neck to pull on the cervical spine, the vertebrae in your neck. In turn, nerves emerging from the cervical spine can cause pain that is referred to the shoulders, arms, wrists, and hands. Similarly, an injury to the lower back can result in pressure on the nerves that serve the hip and the legs. The sooner you have the chiropractic care you need to reestablish proper alignment of the spine, the less pain management you will need — and the less likely you are to suffer another injury because of muscle weakness or problems with balance.
A team of professionals provides optimal pain management
Medical doctors (MDs) are experts in recognizing and treating disease. It's possible not only to suffer an auto accident injury or a work injury but also to have a serious, unrecognized, untreated medical condition. Conventional physicians provide a comprehensive treatment of disease.
Your chiropractor (DC) is an expert in the interconnections of the spine and your health. Chiropractic care gets to the source of the symptoms after an injury and lays the groundwork for comprehensive healthcare.
Your massage therapist (RMT) offers a personal touch that does more than just make you feel good. Massage therapy prepares the muscles for chiropractic care and medical treatment in ways that give you even faster pain relief and permanent recovery.
