Bezak Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, serving Greenbelt, MD and the surrounding Washington DC metropolitan region, has three doctors on staff: Dr. Brian Bezak, Dr. Shaun Bezak, and Dr. Kelly Krol-Bezak. All of our doctors are skilled chiropractors with physical therapy privileges who help people after a car accident. An auto injury chiropractor from our practice will assist you in the recovery process, no matter the extent of your injury.
Types of Injuries We Treat
You can visit our Greenbelt, MD, practice for a number of auto accident injuries. For instance, if you suffer from a concussion that results in headaches, an auto injury chiropractor from our practice will help you recover and minimize or eliminate the possibility of any long-lasting effects.
We can also help if you have a back injury, such as if the impact caused a herniated disc or movement problems in the spinal joints. Your back might feel stiff and you could have pain with standing, bending, sitting and twisting. Additionally, you could also experience radiating pain down one or both of your legs after an auto injury.
You could also suffer from a neck injury as a result of the force of the impact. A rear-end collision, for instance, can propel your neck forward, backward, and forward again rapidly. This is whiplash and damages the soft tissues including the muscles and ligaments in the neck. We can help in this case as well.
Sometimes, an injury you suffer from because of a car accident affects one of your extremities including your arms and legs and your joints such as the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee and ankle. Chiropractors treat the entire musculoskeletal system; not just the spinal column.
And we should note that these are merely some of the injuries you could suffer from after a car accident that we can help in your recovery and pain management.
Treatments We Use
After your accident, we advise you to schedule an appointment as soon as possible, even if you are not having any immediate signs of an injury. Sometimes, it takes pain and all of the symptoms a few days to manifest, but we can catch these things early and intervene as quickly as possible to prevent the worsening of the problem and optimize recovery.
The treatment plan you receive is specifically related to the severity, location and extent of your injury. Therefore, we will create a plan tailored to your needs once we assess you.
We may recommend you receive a spinal adjustment or other joint mobilization techniques coupled with electric muscle stimulation, ultrasound, moist hot packs, ice packs or spinal traction for a neck or back injury. With soft tissue injuries, we often recommend exercise therapy. In fact, we commonly coach our patients on the use of resistance bands, exercise tubing, exercise balls, wobble boards, and balance boards. We will also provide you with lifestyle advice so you can improve the outcome of your treatment and recovery, even when you are not in our office.
