Auto Accident Injuries in Bristol, VA
Auto Accident Injuries in Bristol, VA: When someone is part of a car accident or any other type of accident, it is very important to seek care from Dr. Todd Muncy immediately following. The body may not be able to feel the full extent of some injuries until hours, days, or weeks later. This, in part, is due to adrenaline and other stressors masking the pain. The effects of these accidents can worsen over time or can lead to long-term pain if they are not addressed right away.
Chiropractic Care Works to Alleviate a Variety of Conditions Following an Accident
Whether it is a spinal misalignment that is causing back pain, muscle strains, whiplash or other symptoms resulting from an accident, chiropractic care can bring the body back to how it used to be pre-accident. Dr. Muncy will work with each patient to find the most effective course of action.
Treatments for Auto Accident Injuries at Muncy Family Chiropractic
Chiropractic Care: Regular chiropractic adjustments with Dr. Muncy provides effective pain relief for a variety of conditions. He provides patients with a non-surgical alternative to healing pain and injury. Various chiropractic adjustment techniques are used in order to remove pressure from spinal nerves caused by vertebrae misalignment.
Regenerative Medicine: Regenerative medicine eliminates the need to take off work for weeks and can provide complete relief to joint and ligament disorders without the stress or cost of a surgical procedure. When patients receive regenerative medicine treatments, it is not just about healing damaged ligaments or degenerated areas. Muncy Family Chiropractic works to restore normal function so the patient is able to get back to doing the activities that they love.
Dry Needling: Dry needling uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular tissues and connective tissues for neuromusculoskeletal pain management and movement impairments. Dry needling is a technique used to treat dysfunctions in skeletal muscle, fascia and connective tissue. It also works to diminish persistent peripheral nociceptive (pain signaling) input as well as reduce or restore impairments of body structure and function leading to improved activity and participation.
Cupping: Dr. Muncy provides cupping in order to reduce pain and promote circulation naturally. He places special cups on the patient’s skin to create suction in specific places. Depending on the condition, the time and placement of the cups will vary. This medication-free treatment has been proven to provide benefits by being a natural treatment that has sustained itself for thousands of years.
Rehabilitation: A full rehabilitation and therapeutic exercise program is essential to ensure a patient’s full recovery and to prevent further injury. These exercises can include muscle stretching, joint mobility exercises and muscle strengthening exercises. Correction of muscle imbalance problems around the shoulder, hip or knee are addressed effectively with exercise rehabilitation guided by a trained professional. Core stability muscles are also an important part of the treatment of chronic lower back pain.
