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? Our personal injury chiropractor in Ballard, 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.
What You Should Know About These Other Chiropractic Methods
Many people are uncomfortable with the traditional twisting-and-cracking approach to chiropractic services. For this reason, Dr. Greenslade uses Activator Methods and the Sacro-Occipital Technique to heal our patients. In fact, our clinic has used these new-wave chiropractic methods for so long that we can’t think of any other method that delivers the same positive results for pain related to car accidents and personal injury.
Our alternative chiropractic methods are designed to make your healing process as gentle as it is effective. You’re already suffering from physical pain so we try to make you feel more comfortable by reducing your mental stress when it comes to treatment. A diagnostic consultation with us determines which method you’re likely to respond most positively to.
Why Choose Chiropractic Services for Injury-Related Pain
Consider these reasons to schedule a consultation with our chiropractor:
- We understand the implications of auto-injury accidents.
Whiplash and other auto-injury accidents typically result in inflammation. This means tissue is damaged and your body is trying to immobilize the joint. This leads to swelling and increased temperature, which could then make you feel physically worse.
- We implement the most soothing chiropractic solutions.
Ice helps in reducing the swelling and making the pain more manageable. It’s a temporary solution, however. And because ice lowers the temperature in the swollen area, it hampers your body’s full healing capacity. We don’t compromise on that.
- We use proven technology to help your body heal.
Our chiropractic clinic uses Cold Laser Therapy to reduce the swelling in the affected area, and to increase circulation. This allows damaged tissue to heal on a cellular level. The process reduces your overall healing time as compared to other treatments.
- We want to remedy your pain before it gets worse.
Why wait until the pain becomes intolerable before getting proper treatment? It’s important to take care of accident-related trauma and injuries as soon as possible because the longer you wait, the longer it will take for damaged tissue to heal.
With this mindset, our Ballard clinic finds optimal ways to help you recover from your accident or auto injury.
