Medical & chiropractic care is a common thing to seek after any work-related or motor vehicle injuries. Through non-invasive treatments we work to rehabilitate and adjust your body back to where it was before the accident. We use a combination of manual therapy to restore movement in joints, soft tissue rehabilitation to help tight or damaged tissue and even home care to give you a personalized treatment program that will help speed your recovery.
WORKER’S COMPENSATION & NO FAULT
In a slip and fall situation or a motor vehicle accident, the body experiences an abrupt impact which may cause serious damage to the neck. In such incidences, the head whips forward and back which may cause damage to the vertebra, discs, nerves, muscles and ligaments of the neck and spine. This sudden and forceful movement is not something that the body expected and therefore, the shock caused to the muscle ligaments and vertebrae can be quite severe.
In such injuries, there may not be immediate symptoms for up to a few days regardless of the trauma the body experiences. If you have been involved in some kind of injury at work or motor vehicle accident, even though you may not have felt symptoms initially, be sure to seek immediate medical attention.
Back pain from a work-related injuries or motor accident can be one of the worst forms of chronic back pain. Unfortunately, this is a common issues with those who experienced accidents. While whiplash is often associated with neck pain this sudden start and stop of speed and force of the fall or related injury is enough to hurt even your spine.
CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome tends to be the most expensive of all work-related injuries! It is very important to treat and diagnose quickly and correctly. Many people believe that they have carpal tunnel from forearm or hand pain, and others confuse carpal tunnel with neurological disorders.
Headaches affect more than 80% of those suffering from whiplash. An immediate headache after an accident is understandable. Our bodies were not meant for such severe forward/backward motions.
Why do I have pain in my arms and hands?
Because the nerves to the arms and hands exit the spine through the injured area of the neck, numbness and tingling are common. Even lower back pain can result directly from the trauma, or as a reaction to the loss of proper spinal curves.
Why did my headaches start more than a week after my accident?
Whether you’ve been in an accident, stressed at work, or over-exerted yourself in the garden, your body is constantly adapting to the environment. When your capacity to adapt is exhausted, symptoms can appear. This can take days, weeks, months or years to occur.
Will I ever be normal again?
Many chiropractic patients report improved spinal function and a reduction of their symptoms. Those who delay seeking appropriate care often discover that scar tissue and long-standing spinal instability increases the recovery period.
