AUSTIN, Texas, April 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Roy A. Logan Chiropractic Clinic is alerting the citizens of Texas about common injuries and key treatments for back issues and sciatica following auto accidents. Roy A. Logan Chiropractic Clinic serves the Austin, Round Rock and Cedar Park areas of Texas with expert chiropractic services and treatments.
Back pain and sciatica are often experienced following car accidents. Generally, reports of back pain are extremely common, with 80 percent of people experiencing it at some point in their lives. It is also the most prevalent reason for missed work days and job-related disability. An auto accident can trigger back issues and exacerbate existing problems.
The spine is a complex system of intervertebral discs, muscles, tendons, nerves and other components. Back pain tends to be mechanical at its root, stemming from a disruption in the inner workings of the spine. The sciatic nerve is the longest, largest nerve in the body, running from the lower back and buttocks down the backs of the legs.
Automobile accident trauma very often injures the sciatic nerve. The impact can also cause herniated discs, further irritating this nerve. In addition to lower back pain, sciatica can cause cramping or electric shock sensations down the legs. Other symptoms might include leg numbness, tingling and muscle weakness. Pain is often exacerbated after sitting or standing for a long period of time.
Dr. Roy A. Logan brings a multi-pronged treatment protocol to those who have back pain or sciatica as a result of an auto accident. Treatment may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, massage therapy and nutritional counseling. Dr. Logan's spinal adjustments are gentle and targeted to realign the spinal discs and joints. The sciatic nerve is then no longer constricted. Physical therapy can help facilitate the strengthening of the back muscles, tendons and other tissues as they heal.
Massage therapy helps to relax back muscles and increase blood flow to the injured area to expedite healing. Laser therapy or ultrasound may also be used to reduce pain and inflammation and accelerate cellular healing. Since each client and injury is unique, a customized treatment plan is created to fit each situation for optimal recovery. This holistic approach often leads to a more efficient healing process.
Dr. Roy A. Logan explains, “The lower back and sciatic nerve are frequently injured in an auto accident. We want Texans to know about our customized treatments for pain relief and healing.”
