More times than not, many people do not seek chiropractors after auto accident injuries. In short, you may be asking yourself, "Do I need to see a chiropractor?" The simple answer to that is YES. If you were the victim of the accident, it is best to seek chiropractic care.
Commom injuries after accidents are as follows: bruises, lacerations, fractures, broken bones, sprains and strains, concussions, and even traumatic brain injuries. Any type of brute force that the driver may have not been anticipating can cause the body to react adversely. Whiplash is the more common injury that patients suffer from when in a vehicle accident.
In the case of minor rear end collisions, if the driver that was hit did not have time to anticipate and prepare for the impact, the neck will take the most damage, flying forward, abruptly stopping, and then flinging backwards. It is always in the patient's best interest to seek medical attention immediately to be sure that there is no significant, irreversible damage. Wellness Evolved Chiropractic can help with auto accident injuries and get you out of severe pain at the soonest time possible.
The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique is a chiropractic treatment method created as an alternative to manual manipulation of the spine or extremity joints. The device is categorized as a mechanical force manual assisted (MFMA) instrument which is generally regarded as a softer chiropractic treatment.
The activator is a small handheld spring-loaded instrument which delivers a small impulse to the spine. It was found to give off no more than 0.3 J of kinetic energy in a 3-millisecond pulse. The aim is to produce enough force to move the vertebrae but no enough to cause injury.
This technique can be used for older patients with conditions like osteoporosis. It's also widely favorable for those in extreme pain as well as those that do not enjoy the "pop" sounds of a traditional adjustment. It is one of the most widely-researched chiropractic techniques and the only instrument adjusting technique with clinical trials to support its efficacy. Activator Methods has published hundreds of clinical and scientific peer-reviewed papers, worked with major academic research institutions, and received grants from recognized entities like the National Institutes of Health.
Athletes endure a lot of wear and tear on their bodies and when it comes to recovery and repair chiropractic is second to none. Professional sports teams always have a Chiropractor on their sidelines for this specific reason. Chiropractic care helps with recovery times by making sure the spine is aligned allowing the body’s healing processes to run uninterrupted by misalignments. With Chiropractic treatments athletes across all professions present with fewer injuries as their bodies are well adjusted putting them at less risk for injury. Because of decreased recovery times and decreased risk of injury the athletes are able to give 110 percent to their training and competitions. Chiropractors also focus in the extremity joints like the shoulders, wrists, knees and ankles. With proper joint mobility, the risk for injury is diminished. All athletes deserve chiropractic care and Wellness Evolved Chiropractic is here for you.
The signs in children are not as obvious as in adults. Symptoms like pain, headaches, and sciatica are uncommon in children. In fact most children are healthy and at Wellness Evolved Chiropractic we strive to make sure to keep your kids healthy with chiropractic care. The hidden signs most commonly seen in children are:
- Nursing, reflux, trouble sleeping, torticollis, and fussiness
- Frequent ear infections, bed wetting, asthma, and allergies,
- Digestive issues such as constipation, and diarrhea
- Helps with ADHD, and other neurodevelopmental disorders
By improving the child’s immune system it can better prepare the child to fights off colds and infections.
When a child endures trauma such as child birth or falls as they grow, they may be subjected to misalignment known as subluxations. These subluxations inhibit the brains ability to communicate with the rest of the body effectively hindering the bodies full potential. The last thing you want for your children is for them to grow with subluxations present in their spine. When planting a tree we want that tree to grow straight, upright, and strong. With gentle chiropractic adjustments you can do just that for your child.
Digital postural analysis
A person's posture tells us a lot about their possible health concerns when it comes to chiropractic. When posture is not in its corrected form, it may show up as tension, soreness, aches, and pain. Bad posture can contribute to chronic subluxation which in result, can lead to a faster degeneration process in the spine.
PostureScreen is a computerized posture screen application we use to get an objective analysis and report within minutes of taking the pictures. This allows us to determine where our patient's need correction in their structural alignment and track their progression of improved posture through the course of care.
The Diversified Technique it the most common spine manipulation technique used by chiropractors, with approximately 96% of chiropractors using it for approximately 70% of their patients. Diversified technique is characterized by a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust. It is considered the most generic chiropractic manipulative technique and is differentiated from other techniques in that its objective is to restore proper movement and alignment of spine and joint dysfunction.
The diversified technique is a common form of adjusting a patient. As a result, the shallow thrusts cause a quick, popping sound that is often related with a chiropractic adjustment. The diversified technique, as the name implies, can be used to treat different joints in the body, and is usually used as the main technique at chiropractors in their offices. It is important to note that chiropractors do not "crack backs", as most people comment. Chiropractors do not crack. Adjustments are meant to bring back normal neurologic and joint function to the area that is adjusted. With restored mobility, this decreased pain and offers much needed relief to patients seeking treatment.
Flexion Distraction is a chiropractic technique used to treat many conditions of the lumbar spine. It is a non-surgical technique aimed at increasing spinal motion and resolving disc bulges and disc herniations.
Inflammation is part of the complex biological response of the body to naturally heal itself. Inflammation is typically looked at in a negative light, when in fact inflammation is needed to help the body heal from cell injury, pathogens, and necrotic processes. Here at Wellness Evolved Chiropractic, we will manage inflammation through Cryotherapy and Electric Muscle Stimulation. Cryotherapy will help decrease inflammation in the event of an acute episode and the Electric Muscle Stimulation will help with pain management, allowing the body to decrease its inflammatory response.
During a woman's pregnancy, there are several changes that her body goes through in order to prepare the ideal environment for a growing and developing baby. Those changes are both physiological and endocrinological. With those changes in motion, a women can experience a protruding abdomen and increased back curve, pelvic changes, and postural adaptations. These all can result in a misaligned spine and joints, further causing pain. Establishing pelvic balance, a strong pelvic floor, and alignment can not only help with pain, but ease delivery.
When the pelvis is misaligned, it may reduce the amount of room available for the developing baby as well as make it harder for the baby to get into the best possible position for delivery.
This can affect the mother's ability to have natural, non-invasive birth. Breech and posterior positions can interfere with the natural ease of labor and lead to interventions such as c-sections.
Potential benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
- Maintaining a healthier pregnancy
- Managing nausea symptoms
- Reducing the time of labor and delivery.
- Relieving pain, such as back, neck or joint pain.
- Prevent a possible cesarean delivery

With an in depth x-ray study the doctor will help you understand exactly what your spine should look like and what it actually looks like. With the information gained from the x-ray study as well as the thorough examination, the doctor will create a custom tailored treatment plan that fits you and not a one size fits all treatment plan. At Wellness Evolved Chiropractic, it is crucial that the doctor makes sure that patients are treated correctly through x-ray visuals.
Why does the doctor need x-rays? It is important that the doctor has x-rays as a way to identify any issues or problems with the spinal disc or joints. X-rays are only effective for pin pointing any issues with joints and bones, but not with soft tissues. The doctor will not order an x-ray at random.
If the patient is pregnant, the doctor will not order x-rays under any circumstances.
