Have you recently gotten into a car accident? If so, you may be dealing with stiffness, achiness, or pain. You may experience shooting pain that radiates down your arms, numbness or weakness in one or more parts of your body, or a limited range of motion in the neck. If you are looking for a natural approach to treating your symptoms and improving how your neuromusculoskeletal functions and heals after an accident, Dr. Farrell and her osteopathic team are here to help.
We Can Treat Many Auto Injuries
From concussions to whiplash, auto injuries can leave people dealing with various musculoskeletal issues. Fortunately, osteopathic manipulative therapy (OMT) is an effective way to treat most auto injuries. OMT offers a whole-body approach to care, which means that Dr. Farrell doesn’t just focus on areas of the body that are inflamed or in pain, but rather focuses on realigning the spine and body as a whole so that everything functions together more efficiently.
The Benefits of Osteopathic Therapy for Auto Injuries
Osteopathic medicine recognizes that every system, structure, and organ in the body has to work together in order to function properly. When one or more areas of the body are out of alignment or injured, this impacts the body’s ability to function properly as a whole. Imbalances, restrictions, nerve compression, and injuries can cause pain, limited mobility, weakness, and inflammation, but through regular hands-on manipulative therapy we can:
- Restore balance back into the musculoskeletal system
- Take the pressure off nerves, muscles, and ligaments
- Boost blood flow and circulation
- Trigger the body’s natural healing processes
- Reduce pain and stiffness
- Restore range of motion back into the body
- Alleviate anxiety and stress
- Boost immune function
Many of our patients experience immediate relief, while those with more severe injuries such as concussions may require several sessions in order to experience full symptom relief. We offer everything from general rehabilitation to homeopathy and acupuncture.
