Personal Injury Chiropractors Work with Spine Misalignments, Muscle Strains, Whiplash and More
Personal Injury Chiropractor in Avon, CT: It is very important that you seek care from our Avon, CT chiropractors immediately after a car accident or other type of accident. The effects of such accidents can worsen or can lead to long-term pain if they are not addressed right away. The body also may not be able to feel the full extent of some injuries until hours, days, or weeks later due to adrenaline and other stressors masking the pain. At Avon Chiropractic Health Center, Dr. Joanne Santiago and Dr. Joelle Santiago offer chiropractic care and other natural treatment options to aid in a patient’s recovery.

Treatments for Auto Accident and Personal Injuries at Avon Chiropractic Health Center
Chiropractic Care: Regular chiropractic adjustments with Dr. Joanne and Dr. Joelle provide effective pain relief for a variety of conditions. They provide patients of all ages with a non-surgical alternative to healing pain and injury. Various chiropractic adjustment techniques are used at the practice in order to remove pressure from spinal nerves caused by vertebrae misalignment.
Exercise Rehab: A full rehabilitation and therapeutic exercise program is essential to ensure a patient’s full recovery and to prevent further injury. These exercises can include muscle stretching, joint mobility exercises and muscle strengthening exercises. Correction of muscle imbalance problems around the shoulder, hip or knee are addressed effectively with exercise rehabilitation guided by a trained professional. Core stability muscles are also an important part of the treatment of chronic lower back pain.
Acupuncture: Dr. Joanne and Dr. Joelle insert sterilized needles just under the skin or deeper in order to reach muscle tissue. These needles stimulate sensory nerves under the skin and the body’s muscles. This stimulation allows the body to produce natural pain-relieving endorphins, which are the substances most responsible for the beneficial effects of acupuncture.
Dry Needling: Dry needling uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular tissues and connective tissues for neuromusculoskeletal pain management and movement impairments. Dry needling is a technique used to treat dysfunctions in skeletal muscle, fascia and connective tissue. It also works to diminish persistent peripheral nociceptive (pain signaling) input as well as reduce or restore impairments of body structure and function leading to improved activity and participation.
Cold Laser Therapy: Cold laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless, low level laser. The laser stimulates damaged tissues, promotes natural healing in the body, and provides relief from pain and inflammation. Laser therapy is a proven technique used across the world. It is extremely popular as it provides effective pain relief without the need for surgery or medication.
