The injuries that result from an accident vary from one person to another. However, common accident injuries include traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries, broken bones, tendinous lesions, wrist sprains, muscle, joint, and whiplash injuries. At Brickell Chiropractic & Wellness in Miami, FL, we understand that every injury is different. That is why we advise our patients to visit us so that our chiropractor can evaluate the damage and determine the appropriate treatment for them.
Accident Rehabilitation Treatments
In offering accident rehabilitation therapy, we usually use chiropractic adjustments in treating chronic pain that you might be experiencing, especially at your spine, back, or neck muscles. The main aim of the therapy is to reduce misalignment or subluxation by increase the range of motion and minimizing nerve inflammations.
Hot and Cold Therapy
In some instances, we might apply ice to the parts of the body that are inflamed due to an accident to minimize the inflammation. If you have a numbed sharp pain, we can use ice to work as an analgesic temporarily. On the contrary, by applying heat, our chiropractor will help to enhance blood flow to the injured area. More nutrients and oxygen will be delivered to the injury site leading to faster recovery.
Whiplash is a common injury from an auto accident but also occurs from sports injuries and slip and fall accidents. Fortunately, we can use traction therapy to help in treating whiplash. The therapy reverses the damage to the cervical spine and relieves pain by straightening and stretching the vertebral column. In particular, traction therapy helps to establish a space between the vertebrae so that your body has an improved ability to heal itself.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points can happen when the muscle fibers become hyper-irritated such that they produce chronic pain in some regions of your body. In this case, we might use trigger point therapy to help in controlling your pain by focusing on your trigger points. This therapy will also encompass corrective exercises and passive stretching to enhance your range of motion and strength.
