Las Vegas Chiropractic Clinic Provides Treatment for Auto Accident Injuries and Whiplash Injuries

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2011) - The Neck and Back Clinics, a Las Vegas rehabilitation and chiropractic clinic, announced that the clinic has had great success treating patients for auto accident injuries. The clinic's chiropractor and clinical director, Dr. Benjamin S. Lurie, has over 10 years of experience treating patients with a special focus on evaluating and healing chronic neck and back pain and extremity injuries. Dr. Lurie and his staff, which include physical therapists and massage therapists, use natural, non-invasive treatments to manage pain and help patients heal. The clinic has six different locations throughout Las Vegas.

Dr. Benjamin S. Lurie, a chiropractor with the Neck and Back Clinics, announced that his practice has had substantial success treating auto accident injuries, including whiplash and personal injuries. The practice provides a combination of adjustments, massage therapy, and physical therapy.

"An auto accident injury is one of the most traumatic injuries that can occur to the body," said Dr. Lurie. "For many patients, these injuries cause chronic neck and back pain that can last for months and even years after the accident. At our Las Vegas rehabilitation clinic, I'm proud to offer all-natural pain management solutions."

Dr. Lurie holds an advanced certification in Whiplash Biomechanics & Injury Traumatology from the Spine Research Institute of San Diego. He is also board certified in Chiropractic Spinal Trauma, with additional work in whiplash and brain injury.

The clinic's services include chiropractic adjustment, physical therapy, and massage therapy. According to Dr. Lurie, these treatments are successful because they may help relieve pain, but also correct the underlying cause of a patient's pain. This approach to treatment is different from traditional medical care.

"We don't use medication to 'cover up' pain, but instead we focus on correcting the underlying cause for pain," said Dr. Lurie. "This ensures our patients enjoy long-lasting pain relief and can regain a full range of movement and motion -- without being dependent on prescription painkillers to function."

Whiplash is one of the most common auto accident injuries, and can lead to chronic neck pain, headaches, and difficulty concentrating. While traditional medical treatments rely on prescription painkillers to relieve pain, Dr. Lurie may use adjustments to restore alignment to the cervical spine. According to Dr. Lurie, massage therapy, along with treatments from a physical therapist, can also promote healing in soft tissue and relax muscle spasms.

"Restoring alignment to the musculoskeletal system is essential to relieving pain and reducing the risk of future injury," said Dr. Lurie. "Neck and back pain will continue until the underlying cause for this pain is corrected, and adjustments do just that."

Following an auto accident, patients may also suffer from soreness and stiffness. A physical therapist can create a customized physical therapy treatment program with specific exercises designed to restore a full range of movement to the body.
