Have you ever been in a car accident? If so, you know how frightening it is and the aftermath...so uncertain. Even low-speed collisions can leave you in pain for months to years. At Milton Chiropractic & Rehabilitation, your team of chiropractors see scores of auto accident patients in their 10 locations, Quincy, MA, included. These doctors can help you recover from your pain and reduced mobility to make you feel and act like yourself again.
After the ER
Your post-accident visits to the hospital and primary care physician show that you're pretty banged up, but functioning. However, you worry that as the days go on, your initial pain and limited range of motion will only worsen, or that your initial examinations may have missed something important.
At Milton Chiropractic & Rehabilitation, your team of experienced chiropractic doctors see whiplash as the most common injury associated with auto accidents in both Quincy and across the country. In fact, Palmer College of Chiropractic reports that 300,000 whiplash injuries occur the United States every year. That's a lot of lost time from work, family, and day to day activities!
How Your Chiropractor Can Help:
As soon as possible after a car accident, contact Milton Chiropractic & Rehabilitation for a comprehensive chiropractic evaluation which will include:
- A review of your medical history and current symptoms
- Muscular and orthopedic tests to determine your range of motion, spinal alignment, muscle strength, and more to weeks
- X-rays, lab work, and CT scans or MRIs as needed
With this information, your chiropractor can pinpoint the reasons for your symptoms and advise you on the least invasive ways to reduce pain, avoid or decrease scar formation, and alleviate stiffness and reduced range of motion, all without prescription drugs or surgery.
Your customized treatment plan may include:
- Targeted strengthening exercises
- Physical therapy
- Spinal manipulation to correct subluxations (misalignments of cervical, thoracic, and lumbar vertebrae)
- Massage therapy
In addition, you should know that many auto accident victims have soft tissue injuries which remain hidden for a few days and then become symptomatic. Early chiropractic evaluation and treatment detects tears in ligaments, muscles, and tendons while also promoting both early and long-term healing.
