Chiropractic Therapy for Muscle Spasm Pain After an Accident
One moment you are driving around beautiful Bradenton, and the next, you find yourself the victim of an automobile or motorcycle accident. Sadly, after such a catastrophic event, many people are left with painful injuries that linger, such as whiplash, chronic pain, and muscle spasms.
Here at Impact Medical in Bradenton, we specialize in treating all sorts of post-accident injuries through a multi-faceted, team approach. Our staff comprises physicians, physical therapists, massage therapists, imaging specialists, and chiropractors who all work together to create an individualized treatment plan designed to get you back on your feet.
Today, our Impact Med team would like to share how we utilize chiropractic care to treat the muscle spasm pain that can often accompany accident recovery. This pain is typically a result of muscles that have been overstretched. When this happens, swelling and inflammation occur. This tissue swelling can then cause the surrounding muscles to become irritated, which in turn causes spasms.
Another reason for muscle spasms is the fact that when you are about to be in an accident, your muscles involuntarily clench to brace for impact. This causes significant counter force and strain on the body, and specifically the neck, shoulders, and back.
As we mentioned, the good news is that our Impact Med Bradenton chiropractors are adept at treating these uncomfortable after-effects through several modalities. We can provide initial relief via treatments such as spinal adjustments, the use of a TENS unit, and massage.
Once initial relief is provided, we are able to move our patients into corrective treatments, followed by a maintenance regimen. Some of the standard chiropractic practices used during these phases are continued adjustments and rehabilitative exercises that are often performed in conjunction with physical therapy.
When patients complete their individual treatment plan, they report many positive effects, including reduced or eliminated pain, increased range of motion, and improved posture and strength.
Here at Impact Medical in Bradenton, we continually strive to provide the best in holistic post-accident recovery care to our valued patients. If you have been in an automobile or motorcycle collision and are suffering from muscle spasms or other nagging injuries, don’t live in pain.
