Dr. Dean Zusmer – Accident Chiropractor Coral Gables
Being involved in a car accident can lead to a wide range of injuries. While some of these injuries are easy to diagnose and treat, others might not cause symptoms to appear until much later on. Visiting a hospital or healthcare provider can help ensure proper treatment for serious injuries, but injuries to muscles joints or discs, are not always easily detected. Those who have been injured in an auto accident can find relief from symptoms by seeing Dr. Dean M. Zusmer, our accident chiropractor in Coral Gables.
Common Types of Car Accident Injuries
Car accidents commonly cause injuries to the back, neck and extremities. These injuries can result in pain, stiffness and other symptoms depending on where damage occurred and how severe the damage is. Whiplash, a condition characterized by misalignments in the neck vertebrae and discs, can cause symptoms that take time to first appear. These symptoms, which might not show up for several days, typically include stiffness and soreness in the neck with loss of range of motion. Auto accidents can also cause spinal injuries that result in back pain that can get worse over time if not treated properly. An accident chiropractor in Coral Gables can help realign the neck or spine to relieve pain and other symptoms.
Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injuries
Miami Accident Center, located in Coral Gables, offers a safe and effective way to ease stiffness and pain caused by auto accidents. Whether pain mainly occurs in the neck, mid back, low back or extremities, Dr. Dean M. Zusmer can bring the affected area back into proper alignment. This healing process allows nutrients to once again reach the discs and to keep them strong and healthy.
Chiropractic care for those who have been hurt in car accidents starts with a comprehensive exam to evaluate the patient’s condition. This may involve taking X-rays of the injured areas to see how extensive or severe they are. Patients then receive a customized chiropractic treatment plan based on this evaluation. This plan usually includes manual or activator spinal manipulation to realign vertebrae. Other forms of treatment that complement the effects of chiropractic adjustments might also be used, such as manual therapy, sustained trigger point therapy, massage therapy, cold laser therapy or electrical muscle stimulation. These treatment methods help promote the natural healing processes in the body.
With chiropractic care, patients do not have to worry about experiencing negative side effects or undergoing treatment that is not effective enough to relieve their symptoms. Chiropractic adjustments provide a safe treatment method that relieves pain and stiffness and lowers the risk of having ongoing pain. Patients should keep in mind that even with adjustments, it can take weeks or sometimes months to fully heal, depending on how serious the injuries. Chiropractic adjustments make it possible for patients to resume their daily activities sooner than they would be able to with a more conventional treatments, during the healing process.
