Whiplash Treatment in Marina Del Rey, CA: Dr. David Reed specializes in whiplash treatment for taking care of patients after a car accident. One in six car accidents usually results in someone getting whiplash, a potentially chronic and painful condition that can benefit from chiropractic care.
Get the care needed immediately after an accident to alleviate pain:
Getting the body back on track after a car accident can be tedious and frustrating. Immediately after an accident, due to adrenaline and other stressors, the body may not be able to feel the full extent of some internal injuries with the spine, i.e. whiplash, tissue damage or a bulging disc, until a few hours later. It is important to seek treatment right away with Dr. Reed at Reed Chiropractic + Wellness Center.
Chiropractic care can help with the following conditions after an accident:
- Neck pain or lower back pain
- Tinging, numbness or pain in the limbs
- Loss of range of motion
- Dizziness, headaches or blurred vision
- Trouble walking
Chiropractic care and other modalities aid in healing the body faster after an accident by balancing the nervous system:
Because the effects of whiplash are often delayed, receiving a full spinal analysis and posture screening after an accident is extremely important. It serves as the initial step to formulating a treatment program. Whether it is neck pain, soreness or burning soft tissue pain, chiropractic care can get the body back to how it used to be post-accident. Dr. Reed will work with you to find an effective course of action.
Whiplash treatment in Marina Del Rey
Whiplash is a unique condition that requires the expertise of a skilled health professional specially trained to work with these types of injuries. The most effective treatment for whiplash injuries is a combination of chiropractic care, rehabilitation of the soft tissues and taking care of yourself at home.
Here are some of the modalities that Dr. David Reed utilizes when treating whiplash injuries to patients:
Spinal Decompression, or IDD (Internal Disc Decompression) Therapy® is a proven treatment for the relief of lower back pain. With an up to 86% success rate, thousands of patients have experienced dramatic pain relief and healing.
Chiropractic adjustments provide effective pain relief from a wide variety of conditions. Dr. David Reed specializes in providing gentle, safe and effective chiropractic care to patients of all ages. Spinal adjustments correct the alignment, motion and function of the vertebral joint.
Physical Rehabilitation Therapy
Therapeutic Exercise Rehabilitation can help to alleviate pain by improving your muscle strength and flexibility. Weak muscles can often lead to a misshapen skeletal structure and dramatically increase the risk of injury or the worsening your condition.
Ultrasound and Electrical Stimulation
Electric muscle stimulation is a physical rehabilitation therapy modality that is used to stimulate muscle contractions using electrodes hooked up to an electric stimulation machine at our facility. These contractions help to control pain, manage inflammation and strengthen the muscle.
Ultrasound therapy helps to reduce muscle pain and movement dysfunction. Sound waves deliver deep heat to the areas of the body that need treatment. As a result of the sound waves, the patient benefits from reduced stiffness, swelling and pin. Increased circulation and the promotion of pain free movement are positive effects of using ultrasound therapy.
Arthostim Therapy, also referred to as controlled force spinal adjusting, employs a specific approach using only as much energy as is needed to facilitate a response. This is achieved with an FDA approved instrument called the Arthrostim™.
Working with Insurance
Reed Chiropractic + Wellness Center works with many types of insurance. Our office can counsel you on how to file a personal injury claim.
Personal injury protection (PIP) coverage is mandatory for nearly all auto insurance policies. With PIP coverage in place, you and all the passengers in the car are insured regardless of whose is at fault for an accident (typically up to $15,000). It also covers you if you are a pedestrian or a cyclist. PIP insurance covers medical expenses and lost wages and will pay for your care of injuries, including costs and co-pays for chiropractic care, out-of-pocket prescription costs, or other similar costs.
