Auto Accident Care 

Many car accidents or “whiplash” injuries are classified as “soft tissue” meaning that no bones are broken or internal injuries were sustained. Most patients go to the ER where x-rays are taken and they are told nothing is broken and given pain pills and muscle relaxers and sent home

Whiplash: An injury to the cervical spine, or neck, and occurs when the muscles and other soft tissues are hyper-extended or hyper-flexed.

Because the symptoms from a soft tissue injury may not show up until 3-7 days after the trauma, a thorough chiropractic examination is very important. These soft tissues may require conservative care to help the muscle, tendon, ligaments and neural tissues to heal and repair more effectively and efficiently. People are realizing that pain killing drugs are not the answer. They merely cover up the symptoms, deceiving the patient into thinking they are getting better. Then when the medication is gone they are hurting and have delayed important treatment that is designed to help them repair and recover. Pain changes how a body moves, therefore after the initial pain improves, the body may adapt to moving differently. Unless normal motion is restored, body motion will be unbalanced. Left untreated, the body adapts to the unbalanced pattern of motion, creating a chronic problem. Does this mean you should not take medications? Our recommendation is to look at the healing process and co-manage the injuries with conservative treatment as well medication if necessary.Doctors of Chiropractic consider a person as an integrated being, giving special attention to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. Chiropractic is a natural health care method that stresses the importance of keeping all the systems of the body functioning efficiently, not just covering up the pain.

Testimonials

Dr. Reinhardt was so nice and very professional. He took his time to talk with me and find exactly what was causing my neck stiffness. He didn't rush my appointment at all and even stayed in the room with me and chatted while the heating pad and TENS were working on me. It's also very nice that he offers great deals on Groupon! I would recommend him over any other chiropractor in the area.
