Clarksville Chiropractor Provides Care for Auto Accident Injury Patients
At Ollis Chiropractic, we know how life-changing an auto accident injury can be. You could experience a personal injury that might cause a lifetime of back pain or might suffer whiplash which could cause intense neck pain. You may have your spine and neck thrown out of alignment or bones might be broken. Or you might not think you have experienced any injury, only to wake up months later with some type of back pain, headache or arthritis pain. Our Clarksville chiropractor is experienced is providing pain management and rehabilitative services to relieve the pain associated with an auto accident injury and get you back to feeling like yourself again.
If you have sustained any type of auto accident injury, we recommend that you see our chiropractor as soon as possible even if you are not currently experiencing any pain. Dr. Phil Ollis will perform a thorough examination, look for any underlying injuries that could become a problem, and assess your level of back pain or other injuries. If you have suffered extensive injuries, he may recommend a pain management program to help minimize the pain you are feeling so you can begin on a rehabilitative program.
Pain Management for Personal Injury Including Back Pain and Neck Pain in Clarksville
If you are experiencing back pain, neck pain or headache pain from your personal injury, Dr. Ollis may recommend chiropractic care and spinal manipulation to help bring your spine and neck back into alignment. You may have damage to muscles, ligaments, or tissues that could benefit from massage therapy. If a disc has herniated or is bulging as a result of the accident, it may be causing pain by pressing on the sciatic nerve. Our doctor may use decompression to relieve the pressure and accelerate healing.
For patients with more extensive injuries, our Clarksville chiropractor may recommend pain management program that includes chiropractic care and physiotherapy. While his chiropractic care is aimed at reducing pain and correcting misalignments, the purpose of physiotherapy is to help you regain or improve your physical abilities and restore your range of motion. This may include massage or a series of stretching and weight-bearing exercises that gradually increase in intensity to help rebuild strength, improve muscle functioning, restore balance and increase motor function. We may include the use of ultrasound, cold compresses, hot packs or electrical stimulation. Physiotherapy can be used to help restore movement in broken arms, legs, or shoulders. While the main goal is relieving pain, the long-term goal is to prevent or limit long-term disability.
