Finding Wellness Care Following a Car Accident Injury

car accident injury in meridian and eagle.jpgChiropractor Dr. Ellison treats many patients suffering from car accident injury and other personal injuries. Following a car accident, chiropractic techniques such as the Activator method provides pain relief for patients without the use of medication or invasive procedures. Dr. Ellison may also include corrective exercises and massage therapy as part of a chiropractic plan for effective healing and wellness care.

A car accident injury may result in whiplash, back pain as well as pain in the shoulders which can all occur following a collision. While the pain from these injuries is immediate for some patients, for others, signs and symptoms of injury not appear for days or weeks.  A chiropractor can assess if a patient has sustained an injury or possibly prevent more serious injuries from occurring in the future.

Chiropractic Treatment for Pain Relief Following a Car Accident Injury

Dr. Ellison has advanced proficiency in the Activator method, which is a gentle, low-force technique used to adjust patients. Activator treatments allow patients to heal more quickly, as they do not cause the body to become tense during the adjustment. At our clinic, Activator adjustments are combined with massage, which further speeds the healing time for injured patients. Massage reduces muscle swelling and helps the muscles to relax.

Exercises are another part of chiropractic treatment and wellness care following a car accident injury. Dr. Ellison teaches patients exercises that they should do at home to complement the in-office adjustments they receive. The exercises restore the range of motion to the injured area and help reduce swelling and pain. Once the patient is healed, continuing the exercises is important for wellness care.
