Whiplash Chiropractic

June 12, 2017

Whiplash is the most common injury resulting from a car accident.  Of course there are varying degrees of injury, but it is rare to see someone come out of a car accident without some kind of aches or pains.  In a rear end collision, the head and neck is forced into extension and then flexion, which can result in injury to the muscles or ligaments of the spine.  Dr. Dolan of Dolan Family Chiropractic in Aurora, IL successfully treats whiplash injuries everyday in practice using muscle therapy, physiotherapy, and gentle chiropractic manipulation.  Many people ignore nagging aches and pains after being in a car accident.  These minor injuries can turn into major problems down the line if left untreated.  In most cases, the patient’s car insurance or the other person’s insurance will pay 100% of the bill!   So there is no excuse to getting into seeing a specialist before your problem worsens.  If you have any questions regarding chiropractic treatment, or if you have any questions about your specific personal injury case, feel free to call Dr. Dolan at 630-236-3090 to see if chiropractic treatment is right for you.

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.
