Chiropractors Provide Natural Pain Management for Kirkland Auto Injury Patients

KIRKLAND, WA--(Marketwire - Sep 22, 2011) - Healthquest Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Kirkland, Washington announced its successful record of treating patients for motor vehicle accident injuries, including whiplash. Led by chiropractor Dr. William Marson, the Kirkland wellness team provides natural pain management for auto accident victims through chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture and massage treatments. Dr. Marson uses a combination of treatment therapies to relieve pain and aid healing. The wellness center follows a "whole body" approach to healing, focusing on correcting the underlying cause of an injury to reduce the risk of future problems. The wellness center also provides care for work injuries and personal injuries.

Dr. William Marson, a chiropractor with Healthquest Chiropractic & Wellness Center, announced that the practice has had significant success treating Kirkland auto injury patients. "An auto injury like whiplash is one of the most traumatic events that can happen to your body," said Dr. Marson. "As a chiropractor, my goal is to help patients recover without dependency on prescription medication or the use of or risky, invasive surgery."

Dr. Marson treats patients by using a combination of adjustments, massage therapy and acupuncture to naturally manage pain and promote internal healing. Adjustments aim to restore alignment to the musculoskeletal system in order to correct the underlying cause of back pain and neck pain.

"Chiropractors don't just 'cover up' pain; we treat the underlying problem," said Dr. Marson. "For example, if a patient has a herniated disc from an auto injury, it is essential that proper alignment be restored. As long as the disc compresses nearby nerves, the patient will suffer from pain. Medication can't restore alignment, but adjustments can. By correcting the underlying cause for pain, chiropractors help patients enjoy natural pain relief and are less likely to suffer future problems."

Whiplash is one of the most common auto injuries. This injury occurs when the cervical spine is abruptly "whipped" forwards and backwards during an accident. Damage to the soft tissues and cervical spine may cause chronic neck pain and headaches that continue to affect individuals for months or even years after the accident.

Cervical adjustments, along with massage treatments and acupuncture, are intended to restore alignment to the body while also aiming to help soft tissue injuries heal.

"I focus on relieving tension in the muscles and helping the body heal," said Kathleen Sue Sullivan, a licensed massage therapist at the Center. "By stimulating the muscle tissues, massage therapists can increase the flow of fresh, oxygenated blood, which promotes internal healing."

In addition to auto injury recovery, the practice also helps patients heal, following a work injury or personal injury. Individuals, who are recovering from work injuries, receive free treatment under Washington state law. No-fault Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance pays for 100% of the treatment bills.
