We help with all auto accident injuries. From the moment this very upsetting, sometimes even scary event happens to you, we are here, ready and highly capable, to take care of your body's recovery from your trauma.
Sometimes, after an auto accident, people think they are fine, or that just getting a massage, or physical therapy, or taking a medication will make everything "go away." What they may not realize is that, no matter whether you feel badly or not, even a low speed, low impact collision can cause damage to or problems with the spine and delicate nervous system - the same nervous system that supplies, coordinates, and controls every part of your body.
Even if you and the other driver were only driving 5 miles per hour, the jarring impact may be enough to injure your delicate spinal cord or nerves, and the associated tissues in and around your spine, and dislocate vertebrae or joints, causing improper mechanics and/or function. We have seen people long after an auto accident, that did not seek care, and have worse problems due to ignoring their body's needs.
Our gentle, effective chiropractic care and therapeutic procedures can help with healing and recovering from the swelling and inflammation, soreness, stiffness, pain, radiating symptoms, loss of function, strength or mobility, and all the problems that can crop up following a vehicular injury. There are some problems that would surprise you, that are associated with an auto accident, some of which don't seem obvious, or don't show up right away.
We have many years of experience with all types of motor vehicle collision injuries. We know many ways to gently and effectively get you back up to speed, to help you get back on track with all of your important life activities.
We know you want to and need to be able to do the things you did before this unpleasant interruption, as soon as possible. We can help you get going again, feeling and functioning your best!
We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Michael Rauch has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-evasive hands-on therapy that helps your body release constrictions and blockages that interrupt healthy function. Your craniosacral system is made up of the bones in your head and sacrum and the membranes around your bones, brain and spinal cord. These membranes house the body's CerebroSpinal Fluid, which protects feeds, and cleanses your Central Nervous System. Using a very light pressure, your therapist releases constrictions to these membranes, allowing your nervous system to fully relax. Craniosacral therapy also releases the body's connective tissue, called fascia. Since your fascial tissue stretches across your entire body, the root of fascial pain could be coming from anywhere in the body. An old ankle injury could be causing an imbalance in the pelvis, leading to low back pain and headaches. Craniosacral therapy corrects these fascial restrictions at their roots for lasting relief. This technique is particularly helpful for TMJ, headaches, chronic and myofascial pain, and to alleviate the stress and anxiety that can show up after an illness, accident or injury.
At CKT Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
