Real relief from your auto accident-related pain is right around the corner here at Dickinson’s Wellness First Medical & Chiropractic Center. A common (and verified) path to effective pain relief here at Wellness First involves a combination of chiropractic and physical rehabilitation. We celebrate our auto-accident patients like you testifying that they enjoyed real and measurable pain relief after their very first treatment. You can be the next to enjoy the same. Today, let’s focus upon the physical rehabilitation side of auto-accident pain relief.
There are three stages of physical rehabilitation that will be experienced by the patient. The first is rest and protect the injury stage. This first stage of recovery is all about minimizing further damage and letting the body begin the healing process. The body’s first reaction to injury is inflammation and resultant pain. We can effectively regulate inflammation, control pain, and ultimately protect the injured body part from suffering further damage.
After an auto-accident, many suffer swelling, pain, and range of motion limitations dramatically restrict normal body functionality. Careful soft tissue and joint mobilization physical training is an important part of rehabilitation to recover early-stage range of motion. Objective measures of muscle weakness and wasting are commonly noted after auto injury. Physical rehabilitation minimizes muscle loss and strength deficits which often compound the original injuries suffered in the accident.
