Dr. Zurek knows that without proper treatment, a car accident can lead to significant injuries, including chronic neck pain, back pain and recurring headaches. You don’t have to be in a serious accident to sustain serious injuries. In fact, accidents at speeds as slow as 5mph can trigger significant pain. Dr. Bruce Zurek has been providing auto accident injury pain relief in Omaha for years. He is passionate about helping patients return to your active lifestyle through a combination of hands-on chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy.
Chiropractic Management of Auto Injury Pain Without the Need for Medication
Whiplash is the most common auto accident injury. This injury occurs when the force of a rear impact “whips” the spine beyond its normal range of motion, abruptly thrusting it forward and back. This whipping action can lead to a spine misalignment which triggers neck pain, headaches, and migraines. Chiropractic adjustments are a safe and effective treatment option for restoring alignment to the spine. Dr. Zurek may also recommend corrective exercises that help bring a full range of mobility back to the neck without aggravating existing injuries.
Back pain is also common following an auto accident injury. Just like with a whiplash injury, the force of an accident’s impact can trigger chronic pain. If you are experiencing lower back pain, stiffness or soreness after a car accident, talk to Dr. Zurek. He will conduct a full diagnostic to determine the extent of your injury. His goal is to identify the specific triggers for your pain and take immediate action to relieve this pain.
Chiropractic care is an effective drug free rehabilitation option for auto injuries because it targets the cause of your pain, rather than relying on medication to simply cover up pain. Prescription painkillers are great for immediate pain relief but this relief is only short-term. Medication numbs the brain’s perception of pain. Once the medication wears off, as you know, the pain reappears. Chiropractic care is different. By targeting the root trigger for your pain we treat your pain at the source.
Zurek Chiropractic’s approach to auto accident injury pain relief integrates chiropractic adjustments with complementary treatments. Dr. Zurek finds this integrated approach delivers better results, better pain relief for our patients while safely accelerating the injury recovery process.
If you are struggling with pain following an auto accident injury, don’t give up! Chiropractic care is a safe and effective treatment option for managing this pain without the need for medications.
