Looking for Pain Relief After a Car Accident?


Did you know the average driver will be in a car crash once every 18 years?

Did you also know that even a minor fender bender can result in an injury, which can cause problems?

Typically, the first course of action is treating your pain with painkillers and rest. Once you feel better, you may think that you’re in the clear, but what if your symptoms linger?  

A whiplash injury can also happen from the force of a front or rear-impact accident or spin out that strain the neck muscles, discs and ligaments. Where traditional medicine often relies on medication for pain symptoms, medication can mask or cover up painful symptoms that could be signs of a larger issue.

Specific structural chiropractic care doesn’t just treat the symptoms of your pain, but the underlying injury or injuries causing you pain. Painkillers offer immediate relief, but not long-term pain relief, which could last years if you don’t treat your car accident-related injuries properly.

Help After a Car Accident with a Specific Structural Chiropractor


Have you been in a car accident recently? Struggling to get relief for pain?

Were you in a car accident that happened months or even years ago? Still have a lingering injury?

Have you considered chiropractic care to help relieve your pain?

According to a 2012 study on the Epidemiology of Whiplash, “manual therapy (i.e., cervical mobilization and or manipulation), together with exercise appear to be the most effective noninvasive treatments for patients with acute whiplash related neck pain.”

The reason so many people choose to use chiropractic during their recovery process is because of its unique advantages in treating soft tissue injuries such ligament sprains and muscle strains of the spine.

Stay Active with Regular Visits to the Chiropractor


Do you find yourself slowing down these days?

Is it harder to recover from a pulled muscle or twisted ankle?

Are you an athlete who has an injury that just doesn’t seem to heal?

People who are more active are more susceptible to injuries, and we know how frustrating it can be to have to take time off from your hobby to recover.

If you’re an active athlete, taking time off could mean missed opportunities.

How can you recover faster? Consider seeing a chiropractor as part of your rehab team!

Putting your body through years of athletics can result in tears, strains, and sprains, and even minor wear and tear that can be damaging and painful over time.

If you have pain because of a lingering sports injury, or if you’ve recently gotten hurt, you know how frustrating it can be to try to go through rehabilitation, especially if you’re anxious to get back on the field, the court, or into the gym.

Chiropractors can treat and help prevent injuries in the neck, back, shoulders, knees, and ankles. Manual adjustments of the spine also ensure bones are balanced, which helps relieve tension and promotes healing.

If you want relief for aches and pains due to an active lifestyle, chiropractic care could be the solution!

Get Headache Relief with Chiropractic Care


Do you suffer from chronic headaches or migraine headaches?

Headaches can be debilitating and can really impact your ability to get through the most mundane tasks.

If you’ve tried everything to get relief, it can be really frustrating to feel like you have no options left. Have you considered chiropractic care?

If you suffer from chronic migraines or mild headaches that keep coming back, you could be dealing with a secondary condition related to a chiropractic issue.

Once a segmental displacement has occurred, it disrupts your spinal nerves, spinal cord and discs. This distortion of the central nervous system can lead to many secondary conditions or symptoms. The reason they’re called “secondary conditions” is because they result from underlying primary segmental displacements.

Improve Mental Health with Chiropractic Care


Do you suffer from chronic headaches, muscle tension, or insomnia due to mental health conditions like anxiety or depression?

If you’ve tried everything to relieve your symptoms but haven’t had any luck, it can be incredibly frustrating, especially as you must find a way to get through your day and all the obligations that go with it.

If you’re still looking for a solution, consider chiropractic care!

Because chiropractic care involves a mind-body approach, adjusting physical symptoms may also improve mental ones, like anxiety and depression.

Common physical impacts of anxiety and depression are often similar to the secondary conditions listed above (fatigue, muscle tension, headaches), so it makes sense that when you take care of your entire body, you are taking care of your mind as well.

Getting ready to return to your office after over a year of working from home? If you’re going back to your workstation, you know how nice it is to have a clean, organized space. Have you also considered how your workspace affects your posture and chiropractic health?

If you sit at your desk for hours at a time, there are a few things you can do to improve your space to make it more comfortable. Developing a routine for taking breaks can help improve your overall health.
