Cedar Hill Chiropractor Encourages Car Accident Injury Sufferers to Seek Prompt Chiropractic Care
CEDAR HILL, Texas, Aug. 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ProAdjuster Chiropractic Clinic in Cedar Hill, TX is urging car accident injury patients to seek prompt treatment following their accident. Back and neck pain can take weeks or even months to develop. Because of this delay, many patients may feel fine after an accident and put off seeking medical care. A delay in treatment allows scar tissue to form, which exacerbates pain and blocks healing. Chiropractor Dr. Lesa Ansell uses chiropractic adjustments to treat whiplash injuries, back pain, neck pain, and headaches.
Car accident injury patients should seek immediate medical care after their accident. That's the message that chiropractor Dr. Lesa Ansell is working to share with the Cedar Hill community.
"Many of my patients were fortunate enough to walk away from an accident seemingly injury free," said Dr. Ansell. "Unfortunately, this can be misleading. Debilitating headaches, back pain and neck pain can take weeks or months to develop. This can lead to chronic pain and loss of mobility."
Dr. Ansell is warning accident victims that delaying treatment can actually make pain worse. If the body does not properly heal itself, scar tissue can build up. Scar tissue blocks healing while worsening pain symptoms.
"Proactive, preventive care is the best way to keep the body healthy," said Dr. Ansell. "Even fender benders at low speeds can cause traumatic whiplash injuries. Early diagnosis allows a chiropractor to help the body heal naturally and avoid serious neck or back pain."
Following a car accident, Dr. Ansell will work to diagnosis underlying injuries. These include whiplash trauma, a herniated disc or other musculoskeletal misalignment. Once a misalignment is identified, Dr. Ansell uses chiropractic care to restore proper alignment.
Dr. Ansell follows a whole body approach to injury rehabilitation and pain management. This means she focuses on both the underlying injury while also providing relief for pain symptoms.
"A herniated disc in the lower back can cause serious pain to accident victims," said Dr. Ansell. "Depending on where this disc compresses the nerves, it can lead to radiating pain in the shoulders, back, low back, buttocks or even the legs. Chiropractic care restores alignment by creating space in the spine. This allows the herniated disc to return to its proper position."
As part of her whole body approach to wellness, Dr. Ansell also integrates physical therapy and massage treatments. These treatments help relieve muscular pain in tender tissue. Massage promotes internal healing, relieving tension trapped deep within the muscle fascia.
Physical therapy exercises can also help patients suffering from soreness or stiffness. These exercises help to safely restore movement and flexibility to injured tissue while promoting whole body wellness.
Dr. Ansell also treats patients who suffer from migraines following a car accident injury by restoring alignment to the cervical spine.
