Injury

Injury

Our body and mind can become very stressed and imbalanced from sports injuries, auto accidents, surgery, and with many people their daily life. This increased stress and tension will cause toxins to build up in already tight and sore muscles. I assess and treat patients by purely physical means and therapy to reduce biochemical, physical and neurological symptoms. This holistic model of healthcare has been proven beneficial to many individuals hampered by disorders associated with many injuries. We use a technique called Medical Massage, which helps me identify the anatomical sites where the disruption occurs and removes the interferences causing these symptoms. Medical Massage releases muscles at attachment sites and diffuses toxins’ from the muscles, sweeping them into the lymphatic system. Without the proper treatment, long-term effects can become permanent. Specifically and correctly applied, immediate results are often observed; your nervous system will begin to regain optimal function, symptoms of dysfunction subside and improved quality of life begins. I often see significant decreases in both pain and recovery time. Best of all, no medications or invasive procedures are used, greatly reducing the chance of side effects and their associated discomfort which often interrupt and delay healing. We specialize in auto accidents, sports injuries and pre/post-surgery. Many people dismiss the pain and symptoms related to injuries, surgery, and accidents. The most common one I see is whiplash, most people don’t understand the serious, and permanent damage it can cause if not treated.

Whiplash

Common Mistakes People with Whiplash Make:

1. Underestimating the seriousness of their condition
2. No Pain means no injury-Symptoms often show up days or weeks later
3. Settle their case or stop treatment too soon

Symptoms of Whiplash:

  • Headaches
  • Neck pain/ Stiffness
  • Shoulder pain/ Stiffness
  • Back pain
  • Dizziness/ Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Jaw pain/ TMJ
  • Arm pain/ Weakness
  • Visual disturbances
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)

In the more severe and chronic case of “whiplash associated disorder” symptoms can include:

  • Depression/ Anxiety
  • Anger/ Frustration
  • Stress/ Forgetfulness
  • Drug dependency
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Sleep disturbances (insomnia)
  • Heightened sensitivity
  • Social isolation

I have had back surgery. Can I still benefit from chiropractic care?

Yes, you can. It is an unfortunate fact that many people who have undergone back surgery see symptoms of their original condition (often in the form of pain or reduced flexibility) come back after a number of years. Chiropractic care is a safe and efficient way of alleviating the pain associated both with your back condition and the stress of back surgery.
