Wichita and Goddard Chiropractor Renews Focus on Auto Accident and Whiplash Treatments

WICHITA, KS--(Marketwire - Feb 8, 2012) - Auburn Hills Chiropractic in Goddard announced that the practice is renewing its commitment to helping auto accident injury victims naturally heal. The practice's chiropractor, Dr. Jacob Holdren, uses non-invasive treatments, including chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression and physical therapy, to treat musculoskeletal misalignments and soft tissue injuries sustained in auto accidents. According to Dr. Holdren, even auto accidents at slow speeds can cause a misalignment, such as a herniated disc, or exacerbate disc degeneration. The practice is focused on helping auto accident patients manage neck and back pain without the need for prescriptions or surgical procedures.

Goddard chiropractor Dr. Jacob Holdren announced that the practice is renewing its focus on providing auto accident treatment for crash victims. Dr. Holdren also provides treatments for chronic headache, back and neck pain patients.

"I have quite a bit of experience in treating auto injury patients," said Dr. Holdren. "I have seen the effectiveness of chiropractic care and physical therapy in helping car accident victims fully rehabilitate from these types of soft tissue and spinal injuries. Due to the effectiveness of these treatments, I have committed to renewing my focus on auto accident injury care."

According to the chiropractor, whiplash is the most common injury patients face after a car accident. Whiplash injuries occur when the force of rear impact whips the neck forward and backward beyond the cervical spine's normal range of motion. Dr. Holdren said that accidents at speeds as slow as five miles-per-hour can damage the cervical spine.

"Whiplash victims typically experience soreness and stiffness in the neck and shoulders immediately following the accident," Holdren said. "Patients often find they suffer from chronic headaches, migraines and even have difficulty concentrating. This is because a misalignment in the cervical spine is impacting nearby nerves, affecting the brain's ability to properly communicate through the nervous system."

Back and neck pain treatment options include a combination of spinal decompression therapy, chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy. These treatments are designed to help restore proper alignment to the musculoskeletal system while relieving pain and promoting internal healing.

"If you have sustained a car accident injury, there is hope," Dr. Holdren said. "Natural pain management and spinal adjustments can restore a full range of movement to the body. In the case of whiplash injuries, for example, thanks to these advancements, recovery rates can be as high as 90 percent."

Dr. Holdren stated that he encourages patients to seek prompt treatment following an accident. "I encourage all accident victims to receive an initial diagnostic evaluation from a chiropractor as soon as possible following the accident. The earlier a musculoskeletal or soft tissue injury is identified, the more that can be done to prevent long-term pain and scarring."
