Spinal Decompression in Lake Worth

A non-surgical treatment, spinal decompression has assisted many patients in dealing with back pain problems. Unfortunately, disc issues and lower back pain have become a tremendous medical problem over the years worldwide, where the impact and statistics around the condition are overwhelming. Simply put, the amount of chronic back pain patients increases daily.

Sadly, low back pain is a very common complaint these days, with bulges, degeneration, as well as disc herniations, accounting for a significant portion of back pain cases. The spinal decompression procedure looks to help decrease pain by easing the pressure on a person’s nerve and spinal disc. Achieving this goal with surgery can daunting, as the spinal cord are exposed, and worked around to relieve this pressure. Therefore, many patients opt Spinal Decompression, as it can offer the same results without having to undergo surgery.

We provide a free consultation to patients so that we can assess and review cases that can benefit from the spinal decompression treatment.

Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries Q & A

What are common motor vehicle accident (MVA) injuries?

When involved in a car accident, one may not anticipate the event, resulting in various injuries that can have long-lasting effects. Injuries experienced during a motor vehicle accident can affect any part of the body, but the most common types include:

Whiplash

Whiplash is a type of neck injury that happens when your neck suddenly jerks back and forth. This can cause strains or sprains in your neck muscles, which can result in pain and stiffness.

Neck and back injuries

When you move your body forcefully, it can cause injuries to your neck and back that range in severity from minor muscle strains to herniated discs that can impede mobility.

Concussions

A concussion is a type of head injury that occurs when you hit your head. Although you may experience a headache immediately, other symptoms may take a few days to appear. Concussions can result in memory loss and other complications, which is why it’s essential to seek prompt treatment.

Bulging Disc or Herniations

“Bulging disc or herniation” is the correct term used to describe the condition where the cushioning discs between the vertebrae in the spine are pushed out of their normal position. This can cause pain, numbness, or weakness in the areas of the body served by the affected nerve. It is important to seek medical attention if you suspect you have a bulging disc or herniation.

In a motor vehicle accident (MVA), you may sustain injuries such as broken bones, bruises, and scrapes.

When should you seek care for your injuries?

It’s essential to keep in mind that injuries, especially those that occur in car accidents, may not always be immediately apparent. Therefore, it’s crucial to seek medical attention right away, even for minor accidents.

During a car accident, your body’s adrenaline levels are usually high, which can mask any pain or symptoms of injury. However, as the adrenaline wears off, you may start to experience the effects of the injury, sometimes days after the accident.

It is always recommended to get professional medical treatment if you experience any pain, even if it seems minor, after a car accident. The force involved in a car accident can cause severe injuries, and it’s better to be safe than sorry.

What treatments are available for MVA injuries?

Suppose you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident (MVA) and have sustained injuries to your neck, back, upper/lower extremities, muscles, or ligaments. In that case, you can seek assistance from the team at Easy Reach Chiropractic. They offer a range of therapies to help you alleviate pain and improve your overall mobility and comfort.

Dr. Barbara Adonis and Dr. Heather Previll provide chiropractic treatments and physical therapy to help you recover from your injuries. Additionally, you can opt for massage/manual therapy to relieve any muscle tension or pain caused by the accident. The clinic offers other treatments as well that you can explore.

  • Spinal Manipulation/Adjustment
  • Spinal decompression
  • Acoustic shock wave therapy
  • Class 4 laser therapy
  • Graston Therapy

Call the office today to book an appointment to learn more about how Easy Reach Chiropractic can help you after an MVA.

WHIPLASH

Are you suffering from neck pain following a motor vehicle accident, sports injury, or other types of accidents?

It’s possible that you experienced a whiplash injury. Research shows that 53% of people with a whiplash injury suffer from long-term symptoms for which no conventional treatment has proven to heal.

In order to give your body the best chance at not suffering with debilitating long-term symptoms of whiplash, it’s essential that you get diagnosed and treated as soon as possible.

One of the reasons we have a great track record of helping patients with whiplash is due to the broad range of treatment options that we offer.

SYMPTOMS OF WHIPLASH

Whiplash symptoms don’t always occur immediately after your accident or injury. In some cases, they can show up weeks later. If you are experiencing the symptoms below, contact us to schedule an appointment.

Some of the telltale symptoms include:

Headaches
Neck pain
Back pain
Upper back tenderness
Numbness
Tingling sensation
Loss of range of motion in the neck
Dizziness
Difficulty concentrating or remembering
Irritability
Sleep disturbances
Muscle spasms
(random muscle movements you can’t control)
Worsening pain with neck movement

CAUSES OF WHIPLASH

Whiplash, also called a neck sprain or strain, is a neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, similar to the cracking of a whip.

Most whiplash injuries result from a collision that includes sudden acceleration or deceleration such as when you are involved in a rear-end motor vehicle collision.

While car accidents are the most common cause of whiplash, contact sports such as football tackles, falls, amusement park rides, being punched or shaken and outdoor accidents can also cause a whiplash injury.

The ligaments and muscles in the neck are stretched beyond the normal range of motion and the soft tissues can tear or sprain leading to discomfort and pain.

While common, whiplash is often ignored, undiagnosed, mistreated, or not treated at all. Whiplash causes serious symptoms and requires proper medical care and treatment by a trained specialist. Our team can help confirm you have whiplash and put together a customized whiplash treatment program.

YOU COULD BE ELIGIBLE FOR $10,000 IN MEDICAL AND LOST WAGES FROM YOUR CAR INSURANCE POLICY*.

YOU MUST SEE A DOCTOR WITHIN 14 DAYS TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR PIP BENEFITS. *IF YOUR WHIPLASH IS A RESULT OF A MOTOR ACCIDENT VEHICLE.

Dr. Huffman our medical doctor is available 24/7 by calling 866-402-4250.  He can document your whiplash injuries, report those injuries to the responsible insurer, your Lake Worth personal injury attorney and begin medical treatment all from the comfort and privacy of your own home.  If you’ve been injured in a  car accident in Lake Worth call Dr. Huffman today so that he can document and treat your whiplash injury today.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR YOUR LAKE WORTH WHIPLASH

To treat whiplash, our chiropractors perform chiropractic adjustments that realign your spine and prevent worsening whiplash symptoms. We can also do spinal decompression to relieve pressure on the discs of your cervical spine.

Chiropractic care offers many benefits over other whiplash treatments. With early intervention, our chiropractors can customize a whiplash chiropractic treatment plan to your needs.

To evaluate your neck and spine, we may conduct a range of motion test, do an orthopedic exam, conduct a gait analysis, and take X-rays.

We approach whiplash treatment gently as we understand the soreness attached to the injury. Before moving into full-blown treatment, we may start with stretching the neck muscles and ice therapy to reduce the swelling. Then we can move into spinal manipulation to place the vertebrae of the spine back into their proper location to eliminate stress and pressure caused by spinal misalignment.

PHYSICAL THERAPY FOR YOUR LAKE WORTH WHIPLASH

Our experienced physical therapists use both active and passive treatments to help treat whiplash.

Our passive treatments include hot and cold therapies, ultrasound to increase blood circulation to reduce muscle spasms, cramping, swelling, stiffness and pain, and electrical stimulation. These treatment techniques provide calming relief to the initial pain and inflammation caused by whiplash.

Our active treatments focus on various exercises to work your strength and range of motion. Each physical therapy program is individualized as it takes into account the severity of your whiplash, health, and medical history.

The overall goal of treating whiplash with physical therapy is to help reduce muscle spasms, increase blood circulation, increase your range of motion, improve flexibility, and promote healing of the neck tissues.

MASSAGE THERAPY FOR YOUR LAKE WORTH WHIPLASH

Our massage therapists utilize deep-tissue massage to target muscle tension that can develop as a result of whiplash. Our therapists use direct pressure and friction to try and release the tension in your soft tissues (ligaments, tendons, muscles).

Massage is the most effective treatment for breaking up and realigning the scar tissue and increasing mobility associated with whiplash injury.

Most therapists agree that the sooner massage therapy is received for whiplash the quicker the individual heals and the less likely they are to develop chronic neck pain. In general, any massage that relaxes the affected muscles will help relieve the pain and discomfort of whiplash. In addition to deep tissue massage techniques, our therapists may also utilize myofascial release or static compression to treat whiplash.

WHY CHOOSE LAKE WORTH MEDICAL INJURY CENTER: EASY REACH CHIROPRACTIC TO TREAT WHIPLASH

One of the best reasons to treat our experienced and highly-rated team is the number of treatment options, such as medical, chiropractic, physical therapy, and massage therapy, which we combine to help heal your whiplash. Each patient received a customized, multi-treatment approach to get the best results.

Why Car Accident Injury Physical Therapy is Important

Car accident injuries can be complex and require specialized care to ensure optimal recovery. Physical therapy is an essential component of car accident injury rehabilitation as it helps individuals regain their physical function, reduce pain, and improve their overall quality of life. Physical therapy for car accident injuries focuses on addressing the musculoskeletal, neurological, and soft tissue damage that may occur as a result of the accident.

Benefits of car accident injury physical therapy in Lake Worth

Pain Relief: Car accident injuries can result in acute or chronic pain. Physical therapy can help individuals manage pain through various techniques such as manual therapy, therapeutic exercises, and modalities like heat or cold therapy.

Restoring Range of Motion: Car accidents can cause limited range of motion in joints and muscles due to injuries or scar tissue formation. Physical therapy helps restore normal range of motion through stretching, strengthening, and mobility exercises.

Rehabilitation of Injured Tissues: Car accidents can result in injuries to muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other soft tissues. Physical therapy helps in the healing process of these tissues through targeted exercises, hands-on techniques, and other modalities to promote tissue healing and recovery.

Restoring Functional Abilities: Car accident injuries can impact an individual’s ability to perform everyday activities such as walking, lifting, and reaching. Physical therapy focuses on restoring functional abilities through specific exercises and functional training to improve mobility and independence.

Common Car Accident Injuries Requiring Physical Therapy

Car accidents can result in various types of injuries that may require physical therapy for effective rehabilitation. Some of the common car accident injuries that may benefit from physical therapy include:

Whiplash: Whiplash is a common injury that occurs due to the sudden jerking motion of the head and neck during a car accident. It can result in neck pain, stiffness, headaches, and other symptoms. Physical therapy can help address the pain and stiffness associated with whiplash through exercises, manual therapy, and other techniques.

Back Injuries: Car accidents can result in back injuries such as herniated discs, sprains, strains, and fractures. Physical therapy can help in the rehabilitation of these injuries through targeted exercises, spine stabilization techniques, and other interventions.

Ultrasound Therapy in Lake Worth

Ultrasound, a type of mechanical energy, has been used for years to reduce chronic pain and speed up the healing process. A physical therapist can use ultrasound therapy in a variety of ways to reduce pain and treat injuries. Contact us for more information about how ultrasound therapy can promote healing, decrease pain, and improve your ability and performance in daily activities and tasks.

How Ultrasound Works

Ultrasound therapy uses sound waves to treat various muscle, bone and ligament conditions. The sound waves generate vibrations that produce heat. The friction created when tissues vibrate at the molecular level is caused by the vibrations of sound waves. The friction causes tissue temperature to rise. This is just one advantage of ultrasound applications. Ultrasound can penetrate deeper into tissues than a hot pack.

Gel is used to reduce friction and promote transmission of ultrasound waves during physical therapy. Your tendons, ligaments and connective tissue absorb the waves.

What Ultrasound Therapy does for the Body

Two ways that ultrasound can help you heal and repair your tissues during physical therapy are the most common. It provides heat or thermal energy. The second benefit is non-thermal.

Thermal – Ultrasound heats tissues deep into the tissue. This can improve circulation and reduce pain. The heat can also allow muscles to stretch more easily. Ultrasound can also be used to loosen muscles and tendons.

Non-Thermal Ultrasound – Ultrasound can also work in ways that are not related to heat transfer. Ultrasound creates tiny gas bubbles around tissues when it transmits energy to the body. These gas bubbles expand and contract at an accelerated rate. This phenomenon is known as cavitation.

Ultrasound Therapy Benefits

Heat will increase blood flow – As cold reduces blood flow, heat will also increase it. Ultrasound therapy can cause blood vessels to expand and increase blood flow. An increase in blood flow will mean that more nutrients are delivered to the injury which will improve the healing process.
Reduce swelling and inflammation – Ultrasound therapy has been proven to decrease stiffness and increase range of motion, as well as reduce stiffness and inflammation. This will make it easier for your joints and muscles to respond to manual stretching and other types of massage if blood flow has been increased and inflammation reduced.
Promote tissue healing – Ultrasound can not only improve your muscles and joint range, but also aids in the healing of injured tissues. Ultrasound can affect the metabolism of tissue cells. The ultrasound vibration can prevent scar tissue formation.

Conditions treated with ultrasound in Lake Worth

Although ultrasound can increase blood flow, reduce swelling, inflammation and tissue healing are all general benefits, there are a few conditions that it can be used to treat. Here are some of the conditions that can be treated with ultrasound.

Ultrasound therapy can effectively treat bursitis and tendonitis.
Ultrasound Therapy for Muscle Strains and Tears: This can help reduce the time it takes to heal sprains strains and tears.
Muscle spasms – Heat can be applied to various areas on or near the site to relax muscles and reduce spasms.
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Osteoarthritis (OA) – These chronic conditions respond well to ultrasound’s deep heat.
Low-intensity ultrasound can promote healing of bone fractures. Ultrasound is also a cost-effective and less invasive method to diagnose certain types of stress fractures.

These are just some of the many conditions that ultrasound physical therapy can treat. Whiplash, phantom or severe limb pain, toothache, and certain types of cancer can all be treated with ultrasound physical therapy.

TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY

Many Florida car accidents result in traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) that often go undiagnosed or unrecognized initially. TBIs can range from mild concussions to severe injuries, and their effects can be long-lasting and even permanent if not properly diagnosed and treated.

Here are some key points to consider regarding car accidents and TBIs in Florida:

Prevalence: Car accidents are a common cause of TBIs, and Florida’s high population, extensive road network, and busy traffic conditions contribute to a significant number of accidents each year.

Types of TBIs: TBIs can vary in severity. Mild TBIs, often referred to as concussions, may not be immediately apparent, but they can still have long-term consequences if not properly managed. Moderate to severe TBIs can result in more obvious symptoms but may still be missed if not thoroughly evaluated.

Common TBI Symptoms: Symptoms of a TBI can include headaches, dizziness, confusion, memory problems, mood changes, sensitivity to light or noise, and changes in sleep patterns. In some cases, these symptoms may not appear immediately after an accident, which can lead to delayed diagnosis.

Medical Evaluation: It’s crucial for anyone involved in a Florida car accident, even if they don’t immediately exhibit TBI symptoms, to seek medical evaluation. Dr. Huffman has been diagnosing and treating car accident patients for over 35 years and often sees Florida auto injury patients with TBI symptoms who have not been properly diagnosed with TBI. Diagnosis of TBI often includes a special MRI called a DTI MRI which is not available in all Florida imaging centers.  Additional medical evaluation may include medical referrals to neurologist trained and experienced in TBI.  Florida Injury Centers and Dr. Huffman collaborates with DTI MRI facilities and TIB neurologist throughout the state of Florida to insure that TBI patients have access to the best TBI facilities and best TBI physicians in Florida.
Long-Term Impact: TBIs can have lasting effects, and early diagnosis and appropriate treatment are essential to minimize these effects. If left untreated, TBIs can lead to cognitive impairments, emotional issues, and physical disabilities that can be permanent.
Legal Implications: In the context of car accidents, TBIs can have legal implications, especially if the injury was caused by another party’s negligence. Victims may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The best Florida Injury Attorneys know how to handle TBI cases and have experience in presenting their clients current and future medical care needs to the responsible Florida auto insurer. But they can’t do their job without well documented diagnosis, appropriate imaging, and medical consults.  Dr. Huffman has 35 years of medical experience diagnosing TBI, documenting TBI for patient’s attorneys and referring TBI patients into the best TBI medical facilities in the state of Florida.
Prevention: While it’s crucial to respond effectively to TBIs once they occur, preventing them is even more critical, particularly after you have sustained the first TBI. Following a Florida auto accident with head injury and TBI like symptoms it is critical that you avoid situation that put you at risk for another head injury, including activities at work and certain recreational activities that might put you at risk for another head injury.  It is always best to consult with a physician following a Florida auto accident and head injury prior to return to work and recreational activities.

If you or someone you know has been involved in a car accident in Florida and there is a concern about a potential TBI, it’s essential to seek medical attention promptly and consult with legal professionals. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment can significantly improve the prognosis for individuals with TBIs and help them better manage any long-term disabilities that may result from their injuries. If you’ve been involved in an auto accident in Florida call Dr. Huffman at TBI 866-402-4250 for a FREE TBI consult 24/7 anywhere in the state of Florida.  Don’t ignore even mild Florida auto accident head injuries.  It’s important you seek out medical care as soon as possible after your Florida auto accident and consult a Florida injury attorney if necessary.

The severity and duration of PTSD symptoms can vary from person to person. Factors such as pre-existing mental health conditions, the severity of the accident, and the level of support received afterward can influence the likelihood and intensity of PTSD.

It’s important for individuals who have been in auto accidents and are experiencing symptoms of PTSD to seek professional help. Mental health professionals, such as therapists or counselors, can provide appropriate support and therapeutic interventions to help manage and alleviate PTSD symptoms.

If you’ve been injured in a Florida car accident it’s important that the first medical physician you see after the car crash is knowledgable and experienced in diagnosis PTSD.  Often the diagnosis of PTSD is missed because the injured patient went to first to a Florida ER or urgent care center where physicians rarely ask the appropriate questions about PTSD symptoms.

Because the symptoms of PTSD are missed on the front end of your car injury case, responsilbe auto insurers often challenge the diagnosis later in the injury case.  If you’ve been injured in a Florida car accident speak to a doctor with experience in diagnosis PTSD to make sure the diagnosis appears early in the injury case.  Dr. Huffman has over 35 years of experience diagnosing and treating car accident injuries.  From the comfort of you own home you can call him immediately after your Florida auto accident 24/7 at 866-402-4250 for free medical consult.  Don’t delay reporting your injuries or risking a missing the diagnosis of PTSD following a car crash.  It’s important that you are diagnosed early and referred to the appropriate medical specialist for treatment.

Strong Medical-Legal Cases

We have extensive knowledge in med-legal patient care and management. Med-legal care refers to treatment and management of personal injury patients, such as treatment of injuries resulting from motor vehicle collisions or slip-and-falls.

.

Medical reports are an important factor in the diagnosis and treatment of injuries resulting from physical trauma such as motor vehicle collisions.  We utilize recent post-injury clinical studies, such as XRay studies and/or CT Scans, when available such as those taken at a hospital, imaging center, or medical facility. If clinical studies have not previously been performed, or if there is medical necessity for advanced clinical studies, such as MRI, we always utilize imaging centers. All clinical studies ordered are read by radiologists who also have training in evaluation and diagnosis of acute traumatic injury.

Management of med-legal care begins on day one. Personal injury patients consult with Dr. Huffman who ask personal injury patients detailed questions to determine the occupant kinematics and biomechanics involved in their crash. Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) is always a concern when dealing with injuries from motor vehicle collisions and we evaluate for signs of MTBI in order to get patients with MTBI the neurological care they need.

Many cases of late whiplash (chronic) neck or shoulder pain or severe recurring headaches have their origin in a crash that, often unknowingly to the sufferer, was initiated by a cervical acceleration/deceleration (CAD) injury, often referred to as a whiplash injury, which is a significant injury to their neck.

Following a whiplash injury, there will usually be a certain amount of neck soreness and stiffness as the muscles contract in their attempt to pull the head and spine back into alignment. Thinking that it will “just take time for it to go away” can be a very painful mistake for the future. Anyone sustaining whiplash injury should have his or her spine checked. The sooner the better!
