Boulder Chiropractor Announces Personal Injury Treatments

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - Apr 8, 2012) - Kennedy Chiropractic & Acupuncture announced that the practice is one of only two chiropractors to provide personal injury treatment in Boulder. The wellness center provides natural pain management for personal injuries (including Worker's Compensation and auto injuries) through spinal adjustments, decompression therapy and acupuncture. According to the chiropractor, these treatments may help the body heal not only by relieving chronic pain, but also by correcting the underlying issues responsible for this pain.

Dr. Douglas Kennedy is encouraging Boulder personal injury patients to incorporate chiropractic care and acupuncture into their recovery treatments. According to Dr. Kennedy, spinal adjustments and acupuncture treatments can help the body heal after an injury.

"An injury can cause traumatic damage to the musculoskeletal system, resulting in a misalignment such as a deranged disc or strained muscle," said Dr. Kennedy. "While medication can temporarily relieve pain, as long as the injury goes untreated, patients will continue to experience headaches, neck pain, back pain and other chronic pain. Our treatments are successful because we address the underlying cause, helping patients safely heal."

Spinal adjustments and decompression therapy are designed to treat misalignments in the musculoskeletal system. According to Dr. Kennedy, if a misalignment is left untreated, it may compress nearby nerves, blocking or hindering communications between the brain and central nervous system.

Whiplash is a common car accident injury that can cause headaches and migraines. When the neck is "whipped" backwards and forwards in a car accident, the upper cervical vertebrae may become misaligned. Dr. Kennedy treats this car accident injury using a combination of acupuncture for pain relief and spinal adjustments for alignment correction.

"Acupuncture helps stimulate the central nervous system, removing blockages in the body that contribute to pain," said Dr. Kennedy. "As a chiropractor, I frequently recommend this traditional healing art in combination with spinal adjustments. Both treatments naturally complement each other. I find that my car accident injury and personal injury patients heal much faster when the treatments are used in tandem."

According to Dr. Kennedy, the wellness center's treatments are designed to not only help patients heal, but also to help prevent injuries and illness in the first place. Dr. Kennedy believes that a strong, healthy spine helps maintain proper alignment in the body and enhance overall health.

"Boulder patients choose our practice because we help them optimize their overall health," said Dr. Kennedy. "Patients enjoy rapid pain relief while also benefiting from enhanced well being. Thanks to these treatments, our patients report experiencing less stress, a better night's sleep, and enjoying more energy for daily activities."

Dr. Kennedy is a 1988 graduate of Western States Chiropractic College. His medical interests include alternative health fields, specifically chiropractic care, acupuncture and mind-body health. Dr. Kennedy is assisted by office manager Jenn Silva, who has a degree in Integrative Physiology and plans to become a physician's assistant.
