A chiropractor is a medical professional who specializes in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal issues. Chiropractors are different from orthopedic specialists because they typically recommend holistic and hands-on treatments. Specifically, chiropractic care uses manual therapies like massage, traction, and spinal manipulation.
The chiropractors at Physicians Group, LLC treat a wide range of musculoskeletal issues caused by car accident injuries, including:
You might also benefit from chiropractic care if you experience a car or motorcycle accident and develop tension headaches or migraines.
At Physicians Group, LLC, a chiropractic care visit begins with a review of your medical records and a discussion of the symptoms you’re experiencing, including when they started, if the pain extends to other parts of your body, and if it improves with at-home treatments like ice or rest.
Next, your provider performs a physical exam. During the exam, your provider focuses on your spine and neck, looking for redness, swelling, or other signs that indicate an underlying medical issue. They also order diagnostic imaging, like traditional X-rays, digital motion X-rays, or an MRI to get a closer look at your vertebral discs, vertebrae, and surrounding soft tissues.
At Physicians Group, LLC, the expert chiropractors offer various hands-on and holistic treatments. Depending on your age and the severity of your symptoms, they might recommend:
Your chiropractor might also recommend healthy lifestyle changes, like eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and getting at least eight hours of sleep each night.
Chiropractic care is safe if you’ve been in a car accident. After treatment, you may experience mild side effects, like muscle stiffness, soreness, or a headache. These symptoms should improve within 24 hours. In the meantime, take it easy, drink lots of water, and avoid strenuous activities.
