Chiropractic care is the practice of correcting and healing misalignments, injuries, and other musculoskeletal disorders. It’s a manual treatment where Dr. Walker or another Auto Injury Specialists of Florida provider uses their hands to adjust your spine and other joints, restoring proper alignment and body function.
Chiropractic care is a drug-free treatment focused on pain relief and functionality. In addition to manual adjustments, your provider also guides you through therapeutic exercises and stretches and provides nutritional advice to help you feel your best.
Dr. Walker and his team administer chiropractic treatments to address a variety of injuries and conditions, including:
Whiplash is a common neck injury that typically occurs during a rear-end collision. The sudden impact causes your head to jerk forward and back in a sudden and intense manner that strains the soft tissues and can push your cervical vertebrae out of alignment.
Whiplash is typically very painful and severely limits the range of motion in your neck. Pain, numbness, and weakness can radiate through your shoulders, arms, and upper back. It’s also common to experience headaches as a side effect of whiplash.
When you meet with Dr. Walker or another provider at Auto Injury Specialists of Florida, they’ll ask you about your injury and any symptoms you’re experiencing. They’ll also ask about your lifestyle and general well-being.
Your doctor performs a physical exam to feel your spine and guide you through a series of movements to gauge your range of motion and level of pain. Once they’ve identified your injury, they offer manual adjustments to correct your spine.
Adjustments are short, sharp movements designed to push your vertebrae into the correct alignment. This releases excess tension on your muscles and connective tissue, which should relieve your pain.
Chiropractic care is natural, safe, and drug-free. You will typically experience relief immediately following your treatment, although your doctor may suggest that you have a series of appointments to ensure your spine stays in the corrected alignment and that you’re recovering well from any auto accident-related injuries.
