- Have you ever been in a car accident?
- Did you lift something too heavy at home or at work?
- Are you suffering from pain after a fall?
- Have you experienced some other type of accident or personal injury?
Car accidents, lifting heavy objects, falling, or other forms of accidents and personal injuries can wreak havoc on the body. Although symptoms sometimes occur immediately after the incident, many times, pain can linger, even years after the original accident or injury.
Why suffer pain any longer? At MG Chiropractic, Dr. Mason Greenslade, DC, works to find the root of the problem caused by the accident or injury and uses multiple methods in order to help patients find physical relief. Depending on the individual patient’s personal diagnosis, Dr. Greenslade might use one or a combination of some of the following highlighted methods.
First, instrument adjustment (aka Advanced Certified Activator) is a gentle and safe technique using a small device to manipulate and impact joints—without using manual force. Next, the Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT) removes tension and pain by using pain-preventing padded blocks in pinpointed areas of the body. Finally, Myofascial Release Therapy is another option of treatment that applies direct pressure for targeting specific tissue areas affected by the symptoms of the accident or injury.
At MG Chiropractic, Dr. Greenslade works closely with every patient to understand the level and location of pain so that he can diagnose the applicable therapy required. Oftentimes, Dr. Greenslade will incorporate a combination of the aforementioned therapies—in addition to “prescribing” appropriate exercise and nutrition recommendations—to help patients get moving again, decrease pain, increase happiness, and improve their quality of life!
