We use x-ray sensitive plates during your examination that directly capture and immediately identify any damage or problem areas in the body that were caused by your car accident. This type of x-ray exposes patients and staff to up to 90 percent less radiation than traditional x-rays and can be viewed on a computer monitor within seconds of taking the image.
Cold Laser Treatment
This type of therapy, also known as Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and help increase the speed of healing. This is a form of treatment that also stimulates and enhances cell function that can significantly help relieve pain in the neck and shoulders brought on by a car accident. Cold laser therapy typically takes less than five minutes to administer and can be easily integrated into functional rehabilitation appointments.
Ice Compression Treatment
Our professional Chiropractors at Back2Relief can use ice compression treatment to reduce swelling and help control pain after a vehicle injury. These low temperatures reduce the flow of fluid into tissues and slow down the chemicals that cause inflammation and pain. This is also an excellent treatment to decrease pain impulses such as muscle spasms brought on by vehicle injuries.
Electrotherapy works as a non-invasive procedure that penetrates your tissue with an electrical current that stimulates your muscles and nerves. It’s proven effective in the physical therapy community at reducing swelling, muscle tightness, and pain. By reducing muscle spasms, this therapy helps to prevent exacerbation of issues in the back or neck that can result in surgery or even disability.
