Personal Injury

Personal Injury

Automobile accidents, weightlifting, sports injuries, falls, or just general wear and tear can cause a variety of different conditions that can make everyday life extremely uncomfortable. Any abrupt impact can cause serious damage to the neck or back. Many conditions and symptoms do not appear right away after a personal injury, leading people to believe that they are fine. However, because pain is often the last symptom to appear, the providers at JC Nerve Centers always recommend scheduling a chiropractic visit following any injury to treat issues before too much time has elapsed or the condition may become chronic. Here at JC Nerve Centers , we also treat work-related injuries that are caused by years of repetitive micro-traumas, such as carpal tunnel or other chronic conditions.

We use a combination of manual therapy to restore movement in joints, soft tissue rehabilitation to help tight or damaged tissue and sometimes home care to give you a personalized treatment program that will help speed your recovery.

In a slip and fall situation or a motor vehicle accident, the body experiences an abrupt impact which may cause serious damage to the neck. In such incidences, the head whips forward and back which may cause damage to the vertebra, discs, nerves, muscles and ligaments of the neck and spine. This sudden and forceful movement is not something that the body expected and therefore, the shock caused to the muscle ligaments and vertebrae can be quite severe.

In such injuries, there may not be immediate symptoms for up to a few days regardless of the trauma the body experiences. If you have been involved in some kind of injury at work or motor vehicle accident, even though you may not have felt symptoms initially, be sure to seek immediate medical attention.

Because there are a variety of conditions that can occur as a result of an accident or injury, our providers work to first diagnose any and all issues. As such, patients coming in for personal injury can expect to undergo a medical evaluation which includes a physical examination and a review of medical history. If necessary, diagnostic testing will be administered. Based on the results of the evaluation, our providers will then create a comprehensive treatment plan that will maximize healing and wellness.
