With more and more cars on the road in Tallahassee and many people distracted while driving; you can see how this could easily cause a car accident. So it's important to be aware of your options for care if you and someone you know happens to be in a fender bender. Natural treatments for car accident injuries include:
Gentle chiropractic adjustments – Dr. Pragle will you help you pinpoint the precise spinal misalignments where the source of your pain is coming from, which is often the misalignment of the atlas vertebrae. If you have vertebrae out of place in your spine, it pinches the nerves and can cause migraines, neck pain, back pain, muscles spasms, vertigo and other whiplash symptoms.
The AO Treatment – The AO treatment involves gentle vibrations to the atlas vertebrae in the neck, back, and hips
Deep tissue massage therapy helps to reduce muscle spasms, release tension, and promote healing and relaxation. This can help release and prevent the build up of scar tissue.
Back Treatment – Gentle realignment of the hips and sacrum to promote the natural healing of the lumbar discs, nerves, ligaments, and the tendons/muscles of the hip and back
Spinal decompression for the neck and low back to ease disc pressure and promote a better spinal alignment.
Other Auto Accident Therapies including cryoderm, ice, strengthening exercises, stretching, rehab exercises and vibration treatments.
Along with these treatments, daily activities such as getting extra rest and sleep are recommended in allowing your body to achieve its optimal recovery from an accident. It is important to go to bed earlier than normal, as our bodies heal best during sleep or rest. As well, poor posture can aggravate the injuries, slowing down recovery time. To improve posture, it helpful to practice gentle posture exercises and stretches, and to practice good ergonomics while sleeping, sitting and standing; if possible. Lastly, drinking plenty of water and eating fresh fruits and vegetables is always a good idea.
