If you are suffering from back pain or neck pain after a car accident, you may have sustained a spinal injury or a whiplash injury. Without proper care, these injuries can have a long lasting and serious impact on your health. Thus leaving you to experience years of an undesirable quality of life.
You do not need to be in a major car accident to sustain damage to the musculoskeletal system. Unfortunately, many patients may feel like they don’t need care because the accident was “just a fender bender”. While in reality, those “small impacts”, as shown in many scientific studies, are enough to cause injuries to the muscles, ligaments, capsules, and discs of your spine.
Now imagine what could be happening to your body in a bigger collision!
We provide chiropractic care, physiotherapy modalities, and rehabilitative exercises for patients that have sustained injuries and are in need of care for the relief of their pain and to achieve a better quality of life. Chiropractic adjustments treat the underlying spinal injury or whiplash injury.
These spinal adjustments relieve pressure and inflammation of the nerves and muscles, while promoting the healing process of the body. The many physiotherapy modalities we provide are designed to relieve muscle tension, soreness, and inflammation of the body. While the rehabilitative exercises will help increase the body’s ranges of motion and help stabilize the damaged structures.
At Spinal Rehabilitation Center, our doctors are experts in treating auto accident and other personal injury patients, having served tens of thousands of patients in the Las Vegas metro area. Through the empowerment of knowledge of their condition, patients will understand what they are suffering from and what it takes to get well again. We also understand the importance of prompt care while working with other healthcare professionals to optimize our patients’ outcome.
Some injuries will not even start showing symptoms until days or even weeks after the accident. It is vital to your health to undergo a proper examination and receive the appropriate treatment as soon as possible if you are suffering from an injury. Injuries that are sustained in an auto accident or other personal injury are more likely to have a better outcome when treated in the early stages.
