Chiropractic Care in Aurora and Thornton
Are you struggling with chronic back pain or neck pain due to a car accident injury or workplace injury? Have other doctors told you that your only treatment options are medication or surgery but you are worried about the long-term health effects of painkillers and invasive surgery? If so, you may benefit from chiropractic care from our Aurora and Thornton chiropractor. Chiropractic care at our health clinic is a conservative pain management and injury treatment option following a car accident, workplace injury, or personal injury. Our chiropractor has substantial experience providing a wide range of specialized spinal adjustments to alleviate pain and help the body heal safely after injury.
Chiropractic Care Treats Whiplash, Car Accident Injuries & Workplace Injuries
Car accidents are one of the most common causes for musculoskeletal pain, including neck injuries like whiplash. Neck pain, headaches and migraines are common following a car accident injury. Whiplash occurs when the force of a rear-impact accident “whips” the cervical spine forwards and backwards, knocking the spine out of alignment. As long as this misalignment persists, you will continue to experience pain. Chiropractic adjustments are a safe, gentle treatment technique for bringing correct alignment back to the spine. By relieving pressure on nearby nerves and muscles, adjustments alleviate pain and bring a fuller range of mobility back to the body.
Workplace injuries are also common causes for chronic pain, including neck pain and shoulder pain. Many workplace injuries are caused by poor posture when using a computer or sitting for extended periods. Poor posture when typing can strain the cervical spine and shoulders. As the head leans forward to see a computer screen, for example, this angle places additional weight on the cervical spine and shoulders. Over time, this cervical spine compression can trigger chronic neck pain. Our chiropractor offers neck adjustments, also known as cervical manipulation, which is a precise procedure where pressure is applied to the joints of the neck. Neck adjustments improve spinal mobility and restore a fuller range of mobility to the neck, so you can freely turn your neck from side to side without pain.
Why Conservative Chiropractic Care is Effective
Even if you have received medical care from a hospital emergency room or primary care physician, you may still benefit from treatment from our chiropractor. The urgent care offered by hospitals for an accident injury focuses on immediate symptom relief, not long-term treatment. Medication, for example, can only “mask” pain symptoms for immediate relief. Chiropractic care at our Aurora and Thornton health center is different. We identify and treat the underlying musculoskeletal injuries that are responsible for your pain.
Conservative treatments like chiropractic care are effective because they target the root cause for pain without the dangers of invasive surgery or the long-term health risks associated with medication use. Following adjustments, our patients experience immediate pain relief as well as increased mobilization and a reduction in joint stiffness and soreness.
