Auto Accident Chiropractor in Ashland, KY
Chiropractic Rehabilitation for Auto Accident Injuries
Auto Accident Chiropractor in Ashland: It is critical that chiropractic care is sought immediately after a car accident. Allowing the effects of whiplash to go untreated can induce long-term pain. The severity of the physical effects of a car accident are not always felt immediately. It can take days, weeks or even months for major symptoms to show up which is why chiropractic care is essential to maintaining the health of a spine that has suffered trauma.
Conditions That Can Lead To Serious Injury After An Auto Accident
- Neck pain or lower back pain
- Tingling, numbness or pain in the limbs
- Loss of range of motion
- Dizziness, headaches or blurred vision
- Trouble walking
Dr. Gary Dillon Has Extensive Training for Treatment of Motor Vehicle Accidents and Disc Injuries
Because the effects of whiplash are often delayed, receiving a full spinal analysis and posture screening is extremely important after an accident. It serves as the initial step to formulating a treatment program. Whether it is neck pain, soreness or burning soft tissue pain, chiropractic care can get the body back to how it used to be pre-accident. Dr. Dillon works with patients to find an effective course of action.
Therapies for Auto Accident Injuries
Chiropractic Adjustments: Chiropractic adjustments provide effective pain relief from a wide variety of conditions. We specialize in providing gentle, safe and effective chiropractic care to patients of all ages in Ashland and surrounding areas. Spinal adjustments correct the alignment, motion and function of the vertebral joint.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation: Electric muscle stimulation is a physical rehabilitation therapy modality that is used to stimulate muscle contractions using electrodes hooked up to an electric stimulation machine. These contractions help to control pain, manage inflammation and strengthen the muscle.
Cold Laser Therapy: Cold laser therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions. It is also known as Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) and is a form of photobiomodulation. Laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless, low level laser that stimulates the damaged tissues, enhances the progress of healing and provides relief from pain and inflammation due to its capability to penetrate the skin to treat soft tissue injuries.
Rehabilitation Exercises: Custom stretching and exercise programs are devised to strengthen damaged muscle in order to restore proper health.
Spinal Decompression Therapy: Spinal decompression is a therapy that induces passive motion into the spine with the intent of stretching spinal joints and increasing mobility. Spinal decompression therapy helps to effectively and gently reestablish normal range of motion to your spine.
