No one plans to get an automobile accident, but sometimes life surprises you, leaving you with new injuries and pain. Thankfully, you can plan how you respond to the matter: some appointments with your Salem, OR chiropractor, Dr. Michels, can allow you to resolve the symptoms.
Most Common Auto Injuries
Although quite a few of injuries can happen as a result of a car crash, some of the most frequent include whiplash injury (which can produce a huge amount of neck pain and headaches); herniated disc (triggering back pain, sciatica, or neck pain); and spinal misalignment. All have the ability to severely limit your capacity to perform day-to-day activities without discomfort or pain.
The Chiropractic Remedy
Dr. Michels is experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of auto injuries. After a thorough analysis of your problem and individual history, he'll create a treatment to fit your specific needs. Techniques could consist of chiropractic adjustments, instrument-assisted adjustments, light soft tissue therapy, exercise rehab, and a variety of other natural therapies.
While most doctors are focused primarily on relieving the symptoms, Dr. Michels doesn't stop there. He works on locating – and solving – the cause of your pain. He appreciates the fact that the best relief is permanent, which is what he aims to provide for his patients in the Salem, OR area.
What If You Were Not Hurt In the Car Crash?
Even if you don’t feel as if you were hurt in the auto accident, a visit to your chiropractor is suggested. Some injuries will not be felt straightaway, allowing them to get worse and worse until one day down the road they become more difficult to treat.
Don’t allow that happen to you. Contact our office in Salem, OR. Dr. Michels will make certain that all is aligned so that you feel your best today, and into the future!
