Here at University Health Center, P.A., we specialize in helping you get back to feeling like yourself after an auto accident. We know that it can be a scary time and we make it our goal to ensure that you feel great as quickly as possible.
An auto accident has the ability to tweak your neck, your spine, or even force your entire body out of proper alignment. Our trained professionals are ready to locate the source of each issue and prescribe the necessary adjustments and corrective exercises as they see fit. Our goal is to have you feeling like yourself again in no time.
One of the main injuries that can occur in an auto accident is whiplash. Whiplash is a sudden movement of the head being pushed quickly backward and then forward. It can even happen side to side. Whiplash destabilizes your spine and can even cause pain in other areas. You may notice shoulder pain, blurred vision, neck pain, increased headaches, dizziness, arm pain, and much more.
Chiropractic care is important after an auto accident because if the effects go untreated, they can become a long-term problem that will continue to affect you for many years to come. In an auto accident, you may not feel the side effects right away. In fact, it may take weeks or even months to notice the full effect of the accident.
Even if you had a minor auto accident, you will want to see a chiropractor to ensure that everything is still aligned. If you are feeling any pain, we at University Health Center, P.A. will work with you to take the necessary steps to help you feel better.
Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that replaces lost wages and pays for medical and chiropractic care for people injured on the job. It typically covers a number of injuries that can happen to nearly any worker. These injuries may occur as the result of a slip and fall accident, tripping over a hazard or on an unsafe surface, or falling off a ladder. For some workers, workers’ compensation will cover injuries that happen while the worker is driving or traveling as part of his or her work duties.
Many neck and back problems associated with workers’ compensation are the result of spinal misalignment, which means that the bones of the spine have moved out of position. Other work-related neck and back problems are the result of soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash, affect the muscles, nerves and connective tissue of the neck and back.
Musculoskeletal disorders affect a person’s muscles, bones, joints and connective tissue, such as tendons and ligaments.
A number of musculoskeletal disorders can keep a worker off the job, including:
- Sprains, strains, and tears
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress injuries
- Headaches and migraines
Chiropractic care focuses on the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders and other illnesses and injuries, making it an effective long-term solution for many workers injured on the job. Both chiropractic care and acupuncture are effective treatments for musculoskeletal disorders and other problems associated with on-the-job injuries. Chiropractic care and acupuncture support natural healing.
Chiropractic care for worker’s compensation may include advanced spinal correction using state-of-the-art chiropractic techniques and spinal adjustments, acupuncture, corrective exercises, lifestyle advice, nutritional counseling, custom orthotics, and physiotherapy. Spinal adjustments can free trapped nerves and alleviate pressure on the rubbery discs cushioning the bones of the neck and spine. Acupuncture stimulates the production of the body’s own painkillers and anti-inflammatory; it also supports the body’s immune system in ways that positively affect heart rate, brain activity, and blood pressure for patients struggling with workplace injuries covered under workers’ compensation.
