Chiropractic Care After Car Accidents

September 10, 2013

     Dr Dolan of Dolan Family Chiropractic in Aurora, IL specializes in the treatment of car accident injuries including whiplash, back pain, and headaches.  The majority of injuries sustained in a car accident fall under the soft tissue category.  These injuries are the result of stretching and compressing muscles, ligaments, and tendons.  Most of the time these injuries will not show up on an x-ray.  They might not even really bother you that much directly after the accident or even over the next 24 hours.  These injuries can flare up 2-3 days after the accident and cause severe pain, muscle spasms, painful movement of joints, and loss of strength.  Many people are medically evaluated right after the accident or a few hours later at the hospital.  Many soft tissue injuries will feel OK until the next day.  Chiropractic care is an excellent form of conservative treatment for these kinds of injuries.  When treated early, these injuries heal faster and result in less long term effects.  Chiropractic incorporates spinal manipulation, stretching, massage, and physical therapy modalities such as ultrasound, electric muscle stimulation, and traction.  Dolan Family Chiropractic treats a wide variety of car accident injuries including whiplash, headaches, back pain, sciatica, and joint pain.  Many offices ask the patient to pay the bills and then receive reimbursement from the insurance company at settlement but Dolan Family Chiropractic works directly with the 3rd party insurance company without any cost to the patient.  The office is conveniently located on the corner of Eola Rd and N. Aurora Rd/Indian Trail in the Jewel shopping center.  If you have any questions about possible injuries you may have sustained in a car accident feel free to call Dr Dolan at 630-236-3090 to find out if chiropractic care can help you.

It’s finally starting to look like winter outside which means the snow is here again.  With snow comes the cold temperatures, shoveling, and back pain.  The majority of back pain is considered bio mechanical or musculoskeletal.  When back pain strikes the first line of defense you should have is to apply ice and begin stretching.  For low back pain, simple knee to chest stretches are best as well as hamstring stretches.  Ice will help control inflammation in the back and the stretching will help lengthen the muscles of the back and cause them to relax.  Your next step is to keep moving.  Long gone are the days of bed rest for back pain.  It may be sore and hurt but the best thing you can do is keep moving with activities like light walking.  Through the whole process it is good to increase your water intake to help flush your system and keep muscles hydrated.  These simple steps can help alleviate back pain but if the pain persists past 2 days it is a good idea to contact a healthcare professional.  Dr Dolan of Dolan Family Chiropractic in Aurora, IL specializes in the treatment of those stubborn back pains that just won’t go away.  Call the office today at 630-236-3090 to see if chiropractic can help.
