neck pain / whiplash

Auto Accidents

Unfortunately, our Rice Lake chiropractic team works with many patients who have been injured in a car accident. Fortunately, we offer excellent, natural support to their recovery. We have patients who have been rear-ended and suffer from whiplash. Some have severe back pain due to herniated discs, and others want holistic aid after their accident-related surgery. 

 

Auto accidents are scary in their own right, but they can do some real damage to our bodies. Because we’re made to face danger when we have to, our adrenaline can force us to assume we’re okay when really harm has been done. 

 

If you’ve been in a vehicle collision, we advise that you see a chiropractor as soon as possible. Are you not feeling any immediate pain or noticeable loss of range of motion? We still want to see you. Often, pain is felt hours or even days after the accident. 


 

Some of the symptoms you may experience after your car collision include one or more of the following: 

 

  • Neck, shoulder, or back pain

  • Loss of range of motion

  • Sore or stiff muscles or joints

  • Discomfort when mobilized or at rest

  • Numbness or tingling sensations 


 

There are several causes for these accident-related symptoms that are generally a result of a forceful impact, those we see often include: 

 

  • Herniated disc(s)

  • Muscles strains or sprains

  • Whiplash 

  • Lumbar sprains

  • Spinal stenosis


 

For those injured in a car accident, we offer safe rehabilitation that is effective and gentle on the body for a natural recovery process.

Should I See a Chiropractor For My Back Pain?

The short answer to this question: yes. Because a balanced spine is vital to your body’s health and its ability to properly support your movements, finding out why it’s in pain should be a top priority. Our chiropractic solutions will help find the root of your symptoms with a holistic approach. 


 

Many of our patients visit us for one or more of the following: 

 

  • Pain in the back- sharp, dull, stabbing, throbbing, or radiating

  • Sore, tender, or aching back muscles 

  • Lumbar pain / lower back pain

  • A stiff back 

  • Loss of range of motion or flexibility in the back

  • Swelling or redness in the back

 

These pain points may arise due to inactivity, prolonged activity, irregular spine use, actions, or posture or because of something more traumatic such as a fall or car accident. 

Other reasons include:

 

  • Athletic injury

  • Poor ergonomics

  • Working at a computer all-day

  • Work-related injury 

  • Sitting all-day

  • Poor moving or lifting practices 

  • Lifting heavy items incorrectly 

  • Abrupt movements or pulling of the body

 

We can employ a number of safe, non-invasive solutions to support your goals of a healthy spine. Not only will our team provide you with chiropractic care through the hands-on approach of finding restricted segments of the spine and adjusting them, but we will educate you on how to care for your spine proactively. Dr. DeSantis offers his patients reliable resources that cultivate a stable relationship between the patient and the patient’s body. 

 

Understanding that the current working environment is unconventional, we think it’s important to educate those who are now working remotely on some beneficial, natural healthcare practices. We’d like the opportunity to work with you on getting and maintaining proper alignment, which will make a massive difference in your comfort level and support the higher overall function of body and mind.  

 

When your spine is working in its natural, most reliable state, it can maximize the body’s performance. Chiropractic care for your back pain is responsible and effective. If you can avoid unsafe surgery or medication, that’s a win for you and your health.
