Reducing the Risk for Chronic Whiplash-Related Pain

whiplash reducing whiplash risk auto accident chiropractic treatmentWhiplash is a common injury after car crashes. However, the treatment options vary considerably.

Whiplash is technically a violent motion — that motion causes various types of injuries. Further, those injuries each manifest differently depending on the patient. You want the best possible solution for your unique situation.

Reducing chronic whiplash pain risk requires attention to detail and a long-term, strategic approach. You must also consider the potential value and risk of each treatment option.

Why Should You Choose PhysMED After a Car Accident?

At PhysMED, our goal is to provide long-lasting solutions. We do this by using non-invasive treatments to address the underlying causes of your precise symptoms.

We use the latest medical techniques to diagnose your condition accurately. We have extensive experience with whiplash and spinal injuries caused by car crashes. Our track record of positive treatment outcomes speaks for itself. Feel free to contact us at any time for a personal consultation.

What Does “Non-Invasive” Mean?

It would be wonderful if you could simply take a pill and cure whiplash. Unfortunately, this is not the case. However, contemporary pharmaceuticals often work very well to reduce pain — this enables you to comfortably complete the treatments that truly repair your injuries.

Almost every medical technique has some degree of risk involved. Some, such as therapeutic exercises, have very little risk. Painkillers have a moderate amount. Others, such as surgery, have a great deal of risk.

We recommend the treatments that provide the greatest possible benefit for your health while minimizing risk. This is the principle behind non-invasive healing.

What Are the Alternatives to Painkillers?

Nobody wants a long-term dependency on painkillers. That is why, if we prescribe them, it is usually in tandem with other treatments.

Again, the goal is to enable swift, permanent healing — not simply to dull pain. You might need to combine different approaches to achieve that goal. Alternative treatments can be beneficial, but sometimes painkillers are the best option.

After a car crash, you don’t want to develop more problems. You want a thoughtful, practical solution that directly addresses the underlying issues of your condition. That is precisely what PhysMED provides.

Can Chiropractic Care Reduce Pain?

After an auto accident, chiropractic treatment can start right away to reduce pain. Additionally, after identifying your injuries, we might recommend some short-term pharmaceutical options.

Once we provide immediate relief, our chiropractors, medical practitioners and neurological specialists will continue to work with you to understand your lifestyle, health risks and the precise nature of your injury.

As you continue treatment, we will continually monitor and modify your plan. It might include several types of treatments, such as:

  • Physical therapy
  • Chiropractic manipulation
  • Dietary changes
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Therapeutic exercises

These types of comprehensive plans should give you the best possible chance for a pain-free future. However, we also offer minimally invasive, low-maintenance treatments to manage lingering chronic pain for those who have been in particularly severe car accidents.
