How do we treat personal injuries with chiropractic care?
After an auto accident, the most commonly affected areas of the body are the neck and back. Injuries such as whiplash, herniated discs, strained muscles, and sprained ligaments can be treated with chiropractic care, massage therapy, physical therapy, or acupuncture – All services we offer here at Premier Health Chiropractic.
Spinal manipulation is the primary method of treatment for this type of alternative therapy. Otherwise known as chiropractic adjustment, this method is applied to the patient to restore his or her joint mobility. Since the spine is a delicate part of the body, it is highly advised that you only seek the assistance of a licensed and experienced chiropractor not only to ensure the effectiveness of the applied chiropractic care method but more importantly, that no injury or damage will occur on the spine.
As mentioned above, the most common condition to which chiropractic adjustment is applied is the lower back pain. Generally, tissue injury is addressed with this type of alternative therapy. Tissue injury may occur from a singular event like heavy weightlifting or a sports-related accident, or it may also occur as a result of repetitive stress applied on the body such as wrong sitting position, poor posture, or repetitive physical movements at the workplace.
Chiropractic therapy relieves pain and muscle tightness and promotes healing of the affected tissues or muscles.

Whiplash is commonly associated with auto accidents. One of our primary treatments for whiplash is massage therapy. Premier Health Chiropractic provides various massage therapy modalities for patients in order to give them the exact treatment that they need.

At Premier Health Chiropractic, another way we treat whiplash is with electrical stimulation.
