Car Accident Injury

Queens Chiropractor Alleviates Back Pain and Whiplash from Car Accident Injury

Every 10 seconds someone in America suffers an car accident injury and whiplash accounts for about three million of those injuries every year. Even at parking-lot speeds, car accident injury victims can sustain painful injuries that may cause back pain, herniated disk, neck pain, headaches, and other painful conditions. Queens Chiropractor, Dr. James Lee has years of experience helping patients overcome car accident injuries without the use of prescriptions drugs or surgery, enabling them to go on to lead active, healthy lives.

We urge anyone who has recently suffered a car accident injury to seek a chiropractic evaluation as soon as possible, even if it was only a minor fender bender, so that our chiropractor can provide a complete diagnosis and set up a treatment plan for optimum pain relief and successful rehabilitation.

Massage Therapy and Spinal Decompression Help People Overcome Car Accident Injury

The reason we urge car accident injury victims to come see us as soon as possible after an accident is that we can catch soft tissue injuries that are often overlooked by emergency room doctors. A car accident victim complaining only of neck pain may be sent home with a neck brace and some painkillers, neither of which are designed to solve the root problems associated with whiplash, which can later inflame back pain, herniated disk problems, headaches, vision problems, difficulty concentrating, etc.

Whiplash is insidious because it the injury may not be immediately apparent, but if not treated promptly, the problems associated with it can worsen over time. Queens chiropractor, Dr. Lee will take the time necessary to fully diagnose the injury and create an effective treatment plan that may include massage therapy, spinal decompression, spinal manipulation under anesthetic, and corrective exercises designed to relieve pain and provide rehabilitation and improved wellness.

In addition to chiropractic spinal adjustments, which we can perform under anesthesia with a trained anesthesiologist, we also offer spinal decompression. This is a highly-effective, non-invasive treatment that provides relief for neck and back pain. During decompression therapy, the patient is strapped comfortably and securely to a computer-guided table, supervised by the chiropractor. The table then moves to create distraction forces that gently stretch the spine, separating vertebrae from each other to un-pinch nerves, provide pain relief and actually suction herniated or bulging discs back into their natural positions.

Massage therapy is also extremely helpful with soft tissue neck and upper back injuries that are common in low-speed car accidents. Targeted pressure and kneading help to increase circulation, relax sore, tense muscles, reduce swelling, and increase flexibility and range of motion. Massage therapy is great for relieving pain and accelerating the healing process.

We are eager to help auto accident patients get back to active, pain-free living again. So please call us today at (347) 960-7774 to find out how we can help.
