Auto Accidents: 3 Things You Need to Know this Summer!

July 6, 2016, 10:31 am

whiplash, woman in pain holding neckIt’s the busiest travel season of the year…summer.  Unfortunately, many people end up experiencing an auto accident. Even a minor car accident can lead to chronic pain and health problems .  If you, a friend, or a loved one has been involved in an automobile accident, here are 3 Things You Should Know About Your Health:

  1. Even a minor car accident can cause injury.  Never assume that you are not injured just because there is little or no damage to your car.  Seek professional care immediately, such as visiting your chiropractor, to treat and prevent minor problems that have the potential to grow over time.  TIP: Studies show that ICE applied immediately to the injured area will help keep swelling and pain to a minimum.
  2. The most common auto accident injury is whiplash.  Muscle aches, soreness, headaches and other symptoms associated with whiplash may not show up until 24-72 hours after the accident.   The sooner you seek chiropractic treatment, the less likely it will be that you will have severe pain or permanent damage.
  3. Chiropractic, acupuncture, and other holistic therapies can have a tremendous effect on pain management and restoring mobility after an accident.  The sooner you see a chiropractor after a car accident the faster the healing process occurs

 

Pain is a protective mechanism of the human body that indicates an underlying trauma or injury to the tissue. Pain-killers only cover up the sensation of pain without correcting the underlying cause.  Auto injuries limit mobility and physical independence because of pain.  Putting off identifying the actual cause of pain may increase the risk of inflammation, disc degeneration, and other problems. Consequently, this delays healing and may lead to stiffness, limited range of motion, and other issues related to mobility.  A chiropractor can address and treat these problems.

Headaches: 4 Ways to Prevent and Treat them Without Medications

January 28, 2016, 4:16 pm

Headaches are common, NOT normal.  And because they are so common, many people think that getting a headache is just a normal part of life!  It doesn’t have to be……

Four Ways to Prevent and Treat Headaches Without Medications:

  1. Drink more Water!  Most people do not drink enough water every day and dehydration can lead to headaches. Keep a water bottle with you throughout the day and make sure you are drinking at least 8 cups (64 oz.) each day.
  2. Take breaks from electronic devices.  Yes, you heard me.  When you are constantly looking at a computer, and especially looking down at a phone or tablet, the muscles in your neck and eyes get strained.  Taking short breaks and stretching your neck for a minute will make a difference (and feels great!)
  3. Acupuncture/acupressure.  Studies have shown acupuncture to be an effective treatment for headaches.  We have had much success at our clinic treating headache patients with acupuncture or acupressure, especially when combined with chiropractic care.
  4. Chiropractic adjustments. Many people find headache relief with chiropractic care.  The Institute of Chiropractic and Acupuncture headache, woman in painTherapy has helped many people get drug-free results, drastically reducing or totally eliminating patient’s headaches!  Some estimates suggest that 25% of the population has a headache right now…are you one of them?

 

Headaches are most often a sign that something is not right in your body.  There are many types of headaches and many things can cause them. Medications may cover up the pain, but do not correct the underlying cause. If you can treat the cause of the headache, it will go away!

For more information on how chiropractic, acupuncture, and other modalities can help your headaches, please see our What We Do page at SuperDocDC.com.

What Can Chiropractic Care Do For Me?

November 16, 2015, 4:44 pm

Dr. Trent Burrup answers the question, “What Can Chiropractic Care Do For Me?”

Chiropractic works by restoring the body’s ability to heal itself. When under the proper control of your nervous system, all of the cells, tissues, and organs of the body are made to resist illness and disease. A chiropractor’s approach to better health is to locate and remove interferences to your natural state of health.

Chiropractors are often thought of as back doctors and have tremendous success treating back pain, neck pain, and headaches.  However, since the primary focus of your care is improved nervous system function, a spinal adjustment given by a chiropractor can have a positive effect on many other health conditions not typically associated with chiropractic.

The goal of our clinic is to help our patients become empowered with their health, achieving their optimal wellness goals.  If you are suffering needlessly from pain, have a condition that has not responded well to medical care or other chiropractic treatment, or are trying to achieve optimal wellness in your life, a chiropractor can help you on the road back to better health.  The ability to prevent disease through optimum function is why many people also receive periodic chiropractic care without having any symptoms or when their treatment is complete.  This is known as “wellness” care.

The 3 Things You Need to Know about Auto Accidents and Your Health

Studies show that ICE applied immediately to the injured area will help keep swelling and pain to a minimum. PAIN is a protective mechanism that indicates an underlying injury or trauma to the tissue. Pain-killers only mask the sensation of pain without correcting the underlying cause.  Auto injuries limit mobility and physical independence due to pain. A delay in identifying the actual cause of pain can increase the risk of inflammation, disc degeneration, muscle atrophy and other complications. Consequently, this delays healing and also leads to stiffness, limited range of motion, and other related issues with mobility.  A chiropractor can address and treat these problems.
