Mooresville Chiropractic Care For Back Pain, Headaches, and Sciatica
Our chiropractor, Dr. Ryan Robinson, has treated over 20,000 patients and is experienced in providing natural pain management and healing for auto accident injury victims. If you have been in an accident, the most important thing that you can do is receive an immediate diagnostic exam from a chiropractor. Many accident victims do not experience pain until weeks or even months after the accident. Unfortunately, this means that insurance companies may take advantage of accident victims who do not realize the full extent of their injuries. If you have been injured, you deserve full compensation for your injuries. Dr. Robinson will ensure that you receive the care your body needs to heal.
Even a "minor" fender bender or an accident at speeds as slow as eight miles per hour can cause serious trauma to the musculoskeletal system. One of the most common accident injuries is whiplash. This injury occurs when the force of the accident impact "whips" the neck backwards and forwards. This abrupt movement can cause a misalignment of the cervical spine. When this occurs, victims experience neck pain, headaches, migraines and difficulty concentrating on simple tasks. The soft tissues in the neck can also be sore and tender, which makes it painful to turn the head from side to side or look up and down.
While medication can provide temporary relief, prescription medications work by dulling pain rather than treating the underlying cause. Unfortunately, as long as the cervical spine remains out of alignment, you will continue to experience pain. Chiropractic adjustment is a safe, conservative treatment for restoring alignment to the cervical spine. Corrective care exercises and massage therapy can also help relieve soft tissue pain and restore a full range of movement to the neck.
Many auto accident victims also suffer from a herniated disc. This occurs when the force of impact causes a disc to slip out of alignment with the spine. If the disc compresses nearby nerves, like the sciatic nerve, patients may also experience a radiating or shooting pain in the back, buttocks and legs. This condition is known as sciatica. Just like with whiplash injuries, it is essential the proper alignment be restored to the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic adjustments can restore alignment, relieving pressure on the nerves.
Our chiropractor believes that a complementary approach to care is the best way to speed healing and provide immediate and long-lasting pain relief. We offer comprehensive wellness services, including massage therapy and corrective care exercises, to help soft tissue injuries heal while restoring alignment to the musculoskeletal system.
