Chiropractic Care May Help St. Peters Auto Accident Injury Patients Heal

ST. PETERS, MO--(Marketwire - Apr 11, 2012) - Auto accident injury patients who are struggling with chronic pain have a new treatment option. James Chiropractic in St. Peters, MO announced that the practice has had significant success helping patients heal following an accident injury. Chiropractor Dr. Quinn James holds advanced certification for the treatment of brain and whiplash injuries due to a car accident. Dr. James combines adjustments with myofascial and acupuncture treatments to help restore alignment, relieve neck and back pain and promote internal healing following an accident.

St. Peters chiropractor Dr. Quinn James announced that he has had significant success helping patients manage chronic pain following a car accident injury. Dr. James's practice provides treatment for car accident injury patients, including spinal adjustments for relieving back pain and neck pain.

"Many patients are surprised to learn that even at slow speeds, a fender bender can cause significant trauma to the musculoskeletal system," said Dr. James. "Some of our patients walk away from accidents with only a few bruises only to experience chronic migraines, neck pain and back pain weeks or months after the accident."

Dr. James stressed that the earlier auto accident injury patients seek treatment, the more he can do to help relieve pain and manage injuries. "A prompt evaluation from a chiropractor is essential to identifying injuries," said Dr. James. "The earlier we can correct underlying problems, then the more we can do to prevent chronic pain and scar tissue. However, it is never too late to get healthy. Whether an accident occurred last week or last year, adjustments can still help the spine heal."

According to Dr. James, whiplash is one of the most common accident injuries. This injury occurs when the cervical spine is abruptly forced beyond its range of motion. Dr. James holds a certification in the treatment of whiplash and brain trauma. His treatments frequently combine hands-on adjustments with myofascial to help treat soft tissue injuries and restore alignment to the body.

"After a whiplash injury, patients typically experience soreness and stiffness in the neck, in addition to headaches and difficulty concentrating," said Dr. James. "Myofasical release helps to stimulate internal healing by releasing tension trapped deep within the muscles. This invigorating treatment flushes out toxins and lactic acid while promoting the flow of fresh, oxygenated blood."

Dr. James is also a certified acupuncturist. For patients struggling with severe back or neck pain, Dr. James may recommend a combination of spinal adjustment with acupuncture treatments. During an acupuncture treatment, long thin needles are inserted into trigger points in the body. According to Dr. James, this is a painless procedure which helps to stimulate internal healing and raise endorphin levels for natural pain relief.

James Chiropractic provides comprehensive pain management and wellness care for sports injuries, car accident injuries and personal injuries. The practice offers non-invasive treatments, including adjustments, acupuncture and nutritional counseling. Dr. James received the Missouri State Chiropractors Association "Chiropractor of the Year" award in 2008 for his commitment to natural pain relief and the principles of chiropractic care.
