Clermont Chiropractor Helps Patients With Non-Invasive Car Accident Injury Treatment

CLERMONT, FL--(Marketwire - Feb 21, 2012) - Michaux Family Chiropractic in Clermont, Florida announced that the practice provides natural pain management for car accident injury victims. The practice helps patients naturally heal following a car accident by addressing the underlying cause for their pain, such as a herniated disc or whiplash injury. As part of the clinic's wellness services, the practice also provides weight loss and nutrition counseling to help patients optimize their overall well-being.

Clermont chiropractor Dr. Kurtis Michaux has reported that his practice has had significant success treating car accident injury patients. Dr. Michaux, Dr. Jamee Fike and Dr. Dan Warner of Michaux Family Chiropractic all provide non-invasive pain relief for whiplash injuries and herniated disc injuries.

Whiplash is one of the most common auto accident injuries. It occurs when the rear-impact of a crash forces the cervical spine beyond its normal range of motion. This can tear and strain soft tissues in the neck while also causing a misalignment of the cervical spine.

"Many accident victims mistakenly believe that a fender bender at slow speeds, such as 5mph, cannot harm the body," said Dr. Michaux. "Unfortunately, this is simply not true. Even seemingly minor fender benders can cause damage to the musculoskeletal system. While symptoms may not be immediately present, as the body tries to heal itself and scar tissue forms, accident victims will begin to experience chronic pain, headaches, migraines and even difficulty concentrating."

Dr. Jamee Fike, a Clermont chiropractor with the practice, emphasized the importance of restoring alignment to the cervical spine. According to Dr. Fike, while prescription painkillers can provide temporary relief for neck pain and back pain, as long as the spine is misaligned, this pain will continue.

"As a chiropractor, my goal is to correct the problem and not just cover up the pain," said Dr. Fike. "This is one reason why our practice has been so successful at treating patients and providing long-lasting pain management solutions. We focus on the problem and using non-invasive adjustments to bring alignment and balance back to the body."

According to the chiropractors, it is important for all accident victims to seek immediate treatment along with a diagnostic evaluation. While prompt treatment may help patients heal faster, the chiropractors state that even if an accident happened many years in the past, it is never too late for the body to recover.

"The earlier a chiropractor can diagnose an injury, the more a chiropractor can do to minimize neck pain, back pain and scar tissue," said Dr. Warner. "However, even if an accident occurred many years ago, there's no reason to give up hope. Spinal adjustments can still restore alignment to the spine and help the body finally heal."

The chiropractors emphasize that whiplash can have a serious effect on the body, reducing a patient's natural range of movement and impacting the ability to live an active life.

"Neck pain and back pain do not go away on their own," said Dr. Michaux. "In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we implement massage to help reduce symptoms in patients. Also, with x-rays available onsite, we are able to determine the source of the injury so that we may provide the most effective care possible for healing and recovery."
