PEORIA, Ariz., Sept. 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Even in minor vehicle accidents, which result in no visual injury such as bruises, swelling, or bleeding, injuries to the soft tissues can occur. At Chiro Care Wellness, Dr. David Voyer, DC and his staff treat car accident injuries, such as whiplash, with chiropractic care. By providing both in office treatment, at home wellness care and pain relief, and referrals for legal advice, the Chiro Care Wellness team helps relieve patients' stress throughout the healing process.
The chiropractor and staff at Chiro Care Wellness are dedicated to providing wellness care to patients suffering from auto injuries, especially soft tissue injuries such as whiplash. In an accident, the car is stopped abruptly. The people inside the car, however, remain moving until caught by a seatbelt or an airbag. This results in the neck being pulled quickly forward and then back, very much like the motion of a whip. This whip-like movement hyperextends and hyperflexes the ligaments and muscles within the neck, resulting in the injury called whiplash. Whiplash often has no immediate side effects, but will result in severe neck, back, and shoulder pain, headaches, dizziness, numbness, and tingling, and in extreme cases, confusion, insomnia, and depression.
Most mainstream medicine treats whiplash by using neck braces and pain medications. Prescription pain medications often result in a myriad of their own negative side effects, and neck braces actually hinder the neck's soft tissues from healing properly, resulting in painfully stiff muscles and a limited range of motion.
Chiro Care Wellness treats whiplash with a combination of chiropractic adjustment, corrective exercises, and at-home care to offer pain relief throughout the healing process. Dr. David Voyer, DC treats whiplash using a technique called Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP), which focuses on structurally rehabilitating posture and the spine by strengthening key muscles, improving range of motion, and aligning the spine. Restoring the spine's proper alignment and posture results in faster healing, reduced inflammation, and pain relief. Dr. Voyer, DC also provides patients with at home care items like neck pillows and ice packs.
"I love that being a chiropractor allows me to offer whiplash patients a more effective, natural alternative to mainstream medicine," says Dr. David Voyer, DC, owner and chiropractor at Chiro Care Wellness. "Nothing is more rewarding than witnessing a patient's recovery and return to normal, daily activities firsthand."
In addition to providing pain relief and helping patients recover from car accident injuries, Chiro Care Wellness relieves mental stress by working closely with Lerner and Rowe, a local personal injury law firm, to assist patients with any legal repercussions of the auto accident.
Serving Peoria, Arizona and the surrounding areas, Dr. Voyer, DC and his staff use chiropractic care to treat back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, and other health issues in addition to auto accident injuries.
