After you've recovered from the initial shock of an auto accident, you're likely wondering what to do next. While contacting your insurance company and repair shop is important, you should also consider making a call to Sheldon Road Chiropractic & Massage Therapy in Tampa, Florida for an evaluation. Our chiropractors, Dr. George Kollias, Dr. Autumn Scaz, and Dr. Elissa Pally offer different treatment techniques for common auto accident injuries.
Whiplash is an extremely common injury that occurs during a car accident, particularly when your vehicle is hit from behind. Whiplash occurs when your head and neck is forced forward and then immediately backward rapidly, and the soft tissues surrounding the spinal bones are damaged. Persistent headaches are one of the most common symptoms of whiplash after auto accidents, and your Tampa chiropractors have years of experience in the treatment of these injuries. Manual adjustments and pressure techniques can help by guiding the spine back into place while encouraging blood flow and healing.
Upper back pain
In addition to headaches, whiplash can cause you to experience pain in your neck, shoulders, and the upper third portion of your back. Chiropractic care in this area of the body is designed to align the spine to its optimal position while healing soft tissues and preventing disc degeneration. That's why it's so important to contact your Tampa chiropractor for treatment immediately after an auto accident; early intervention is key to successful healing and prevention of chronic pain.
Lower back pain
The lower portion of the spine, known as the lumbar region, is the foundation for the spine and therefore an extremely important part of your overall health. If your lower back becomes injured in an auto accident, treatment from your Tampa chiropractor is essential for your flexibility, comfort, and participation in daily activities. These types of injuries are common due to the position of the seatbelt, which keeps you safely inside your car but can force your hips into an unnatural position during impact.
If you think you've been injured in an auto accident, make sure you don't delay in contacting Sheldon Road Chiropractic & Massage Therapy in Tampa, Florida for an appointment with one of our practitioners at 813-884-1457.
How your chiropractors in Tampa, FL, can help you
If you are suffering from back pain and have been told that you need disc surgery, you may have another alternative. The chiropractors at Sheldon Road Chiropractic & Massage Therapy in Tampa, FL, offer a wide range of chiropractic services, including two non-invasive alternatives to disc surgery. They can help you and your back feel better without going under the knife.
Disc surgery alternatives
There are many problems that have a direct effect on your back—spinal stenosis, arthritis, degenerative joint disease, and other conditions can all cause disc problems and significant back pain. Your mobility and flexibility can decrease, and before you know it, you are stuck on the couch.
At Sheldon Road Chiropractic & Massage Therapy they offer several alternatives to disc surgery. Consider:
Using a device known as the DRX9000, this spinal decompression system stretches out compressed joints, releasing pinched nerves. As the pressure of compressed nerves is decreased, the flow of fluid, nutrients, and oxygen to your discs is increased, thus enhancing your function and flexibility. For more information on spinal decompression or to download a brochure on the DRX9000, please visit http://www.sheldonroadchiropractic.com/drx-9000.html
Using the MLS laser, this treatment utilizes specific wavelengths of light to decrease inflammation and reduce pain. Laser therapy works on a cellular level to repair and speed up healing of your ligaments, tendons, and muscles. MLS laser therapy has been cleared by the FDA and has no negative side effects.
