Personal Injury Treatment
Sometimes, personal injuries occur as the result of a fall or similar impact. Other times, personal injuries occur out of nowhere. Car accidents, freak home accidents, and collisions during sports can all do significant damage to the musculoskeletal system. David W. Kuo, D.C. has been treating the personal injuries of Pasadena area residents for many years. Dr. Kuo will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the extent of your injuries before creating a chiropractic care plan to address them.
Chiropractic Care for Whiplash
One common ailment people suffer from following car crashes is whiplash. Whiplash occurs when the head is suddenly pulled one way, then quickly snapped back to its normal position. This sudden change in motion damages the cervical spine, leading to significant pain and immobility. The signs and symptoms of whiplash go undetected at first because the pain of stiffness is easily dismissed as generalized inflammation. After several days, whiplash leads to blurred vision, headaches, migraines, extreme pain in the neck and upper shoulders, and more.
The treatments include chiropractic care, massage therapy, physical therapy, and more. Chiropractic care is an appealing option for personal injury treatment because it is natural and non-invasive. Rather than masking your pain with prescription medication or performing invasive surgery, our chiropractor will relieve your pain and improve your mobility by restoring your body’s natural alignment. Properly examining your pain points, pain levels, and the type of personal injury you suffered lets the chiropractor know precisely what needs to be done to resolve the situation.
Potential treatment options include:
- Spinal adjustments
- Spinal decompression
- Targeted or mechanical massage therapy
- Stretching and custom exercises to do at home
- Electronic pulse therapy to get even deeper into the muscles
The key is to seek chiropractic care as soon as possible after the injury happens, and even in some cases if you suspect it happened but are not sure. Treating personal injuries as quickly as possible helps to prevent long-term immobility and nerve damage.
