Although most auto accidents happen quickly and without any warning, the injuries sustained from them can be chronic and long-lasting. Some individuals do not feel the immediate repercussions of a car accident or may only have been involved in a slow speed or “minor” accident. However, it is crucial to seek medical attention, as the effects are often delayed and can worsen without proper care.
At Suncoast Integrative Healthcare, we treat the vast majority of commonly sustained injuries from a car accident, including:
- Muscle pain and soreness
- Misaligned discs within the neck and back
- Herniated, bulging, or ruptured discs
- Knee injuries
- Hand, wrist, or shoulder trauma
- Foot and ankle injuries
- Sciatica or other nerve damage
Treatments We Offer
One of the main advantages of our treatments is that they significantly reduce the need for medications (like addictive painkillers) or invasive surgeries, which involve extensive recovery times and can be painful. If any, the side effects of our treatments are very mild and involve little to no recovery time. This allows our patients to return to a pain-free, enjoyable life sooner and easier.
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, injections make use of the body’s own healing properties to stimulate renewal and help to ease pain. The procedure first involves a doctor drawing a small amount of blood from the patient. The blood is then run through a centrifuge to further concentrate the plasma, which contains components essential for growth healing functions. Therefore, when injected directly into the injured or ailing body tissue, these growth factors stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells the body can produce.
Our doctors may also recommend gentle but effective chiropractic adjustments if misaligned vertebrae are the source of the patient’s discomfort following a car accident. The goal with manual adjustments or manipulations is to improve mobility and return the spine to its proper alignment. Since the spine is your body’s central support structure, a healthy spine can improve communication between the brain and the rest of the body and encourage the body’s natural ability to heal.
