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.

Whiplash Injuries and Chiropractic

March 1, 2013

This is the time of year for fender benders in the Aurora and Naperville area.  A lot can be going through your head after being rear ended.  The car is totaled, a stack of paperwork is on its way, and your neck is starting to get stiff and sore.  One of the biggest mistakes you can make following a motor vehicle accident is to sign a release form stating you received no injuries.  The majority of aches and pains from an accident will begin in the next 24-48 hours after your crash.  Whiplash is a neck injury resulting from the rapid backward and forward movements of the neck after a rear end accident.  It can cause muscle strains, ligament strains, muscle spasms, headaches, loss of range of motion in the neck, and even disc herniation in more severe cases.  Initial x-rays at the hospital initially after the accident may be negative but soft tissues injuries can arise and cause a lot of pain and discomfort.  Dr Dolan of Dolan Family Chiropractic successfully treats whiplash injuries using a combination of gentle manipulations, physical therapy modalities, soft tissue massage, and stretching techniques.  His treatment helps to restore movement back in the neck and get rid of the pain quickly so you can get back to your life.  If you have been in a car accident and are experiencing neck pain or discomfort call Dr Dolan at 630-236-3090 for a free consultation to see if chiropractic can help you.

Headache Treatment in Aurora, IL

February 25, 2013

Chiropractors successfully treat many different forms of headaches.  One of the most common types of headaches is called a cervicogenic headache.  This headache typically starts with pain and tightness in the back of the neck towards the end of your workday.  It spreads to the back of the head and can even travel over the top of your head to the temple regions on the side of the head.  It can give a tightening, throbbing headache that lasts a couple hours.  Stress, improper posture, and work activities like reading, working at the computer, and talking on the phone can be the cause.  These activities cause the muscles in the back of the neck to chronically tighten whick results in these daily headaches.  Chiropractic is great for these types of headaches because we focus on relieving the tightness in the neck muscles, correcting the alignment of the spine, and working on your posture to keep the headaches from coming on in the first place.  If you suffer from these types of headaches and would like to know if chiropractic care can help you then give Dr Dolan a call at Dolan Family Chiropractic at 630-236-3090 or visit our website at www.DolanChiro.com

How Chiropractors Can Help Neck Pain

November 21, 2011

Chiropractors are well known for treating low back pain but research has shown that conservative care such as chiropractic is very effective for the treatment of neck pain as well. As the temperatures continue to drop neck injuries are on the rise. Colder weather causes the postural muscles on the neck and shoulders to tighten up causing muscle spasms and neck pain. Increased activity, holiday stress, long hours at work, or even a bad night’s sleep can be the root of generalized neck pain and can even lead to headaches. Chiropractic care uses gentle manipulation to restore range of motion in the neck and myofascial release, electric muscle stimulation, and trigger point therapy to reduce muscle spasm. Specific neck and shoulder stretches can be prescribed for use at home to speed up recovery and decrease the chances of it returning.
If you have any questions for the doctors of Dolan Family Chiropractic, contact them at their Aurora, IL office at 630-236-3090 or go to our website www.Dolanchiro.com to learn more about how chiropractic can help your family.
