The most common car accident injuries involve the back and neck. After an accident, it is critical to seek chiropractic treatment. Some pain, numbness, or discomfort may not be experienced until a few days after the incident. Although it may seem that an injury is minor, we recommend scheduling an evaluation to ensure overall health and wellness. Symptoms of whiplash, which include neck pain, may not appear for 24 hours up to a few days after an accident.
Dr. Brian Sims and the Eastside Spine & Injury team in Milwaukie, OR focus on nervous system and musculoskeletal disorders. We can treat neck, back, and joint pain and headaches. We offer the following treatments that can provide relief from car accident injuries:
- Rehab therapy – We can help you restore, expand, and maintain motion with rehab therapy, also known as physical therapy. This can be an equally effective alternative to surgery. We can devise a treatment plan to meet your needs and achieve your goals, which can ensure optimal mobility and health throughout your life.
- Spinal adjustments – Dr. Sims can improve the function of the spine and alleviate back pain by performing gentle spinal adjustments, a common chiropractic technique.
- Massage therapy – We can loosen tight muscles in the back or neck with different techniques. We can treat underlying causes of chronic pain involving muscular and nervous systems with neuromuscular therapy. Repetitive movement injuries can cause tender muscles as well as circulation and postural issues. Massage therapy can provide relief.
In addition to these treatments, we can recommend lifestyle changes including exercise and diet. We will work with you to help you achieve the quality of life you desire. At Eastside Spine & Injury, we provide gentle and holistic care.
