Treatments that Our San Antonio Chiropractor Offers at Our Chiropractic, Nutrition, and Wellness Clinic

Treatments at our San Antonio chiropractic, nutrition, and wellness clinic depend on your injuries and the severity of the injuries. Generally, our chiropractor uses diagnostic tools like an x-ray to determine the underlying cause of your pain and develop an effective solution for your discomfort. 

The treatments we recommend for discomfort and pain include:

Our treatment process focuses on your situation, so our chiropractor evaluates your needs and then recommends a plan of action. We use a combination of natural treatments, exercise programs and nutrition to encourage your body to recover after an accident. We also focus on your specific situation and injuries so each treatment plan allows your body to recover and heal without pushing too hard or taking unnecessary risks. In some cases, our chiropractor may recommend psychological treatments with the licensed psychological counselor in our clinic. Since an accident may cause anxiety or fears, you want to address the underlying concerns early.

Stages of Treatment for Long-Term Health that Our Chiropractor Offers for Car Accidents

A car accident injury impacts your body in various ways. At our chiropractic clinic, we understand the complications and our chiropractor follows specific strategies to address each stage of the healing process. 

The first stage of treatment focuses on the inflammatory response, such as swelling or pain. The acute inflammatory response occurs shortly after the injury and we use chiropractic treatments and natural solutions to reduce inflammation. Chiropractic care helps with inflammation by improving the function of your neck and spine. It allows your body to function properly, which allows the body to determine when to stop inflammation as a response to an injury. We also use tools like cold and hot therapy, which helps reduce swelling. Changes to your dietary habits also encourage reduced inflammatory responses by using natural foods and nutrients to manage inflammation.

After the swelling goes down and changes to your diet keep your inflammatory responses low, we move into the second stage of healing. The rejuvenation stage of recovery focuses on encouraging your body to build new tissues and heal the injured muscles or tissues of your body. It works with nutrition therapy and cold laser therapy to help your body rebuild. Nutrition therapy focuses on providing the building blocks your body needs to heal. We recommend nutrient-rich foods, supplementation and changes to your normal diet based on your situation and an evaluation of your nutritional needs. We also use cold laser therapy, or infrared treatments, to encourage healing in specific areas. The treatment reduces pain and unnecessary pressure on your joints or muscles.

The final stage of healing is the rehabilitation. Our chiropractor uses passive and active therapies and counseling to rebuild your body's strength, flexibility and mobility. We also help you address any lingering fears or concerns related to the auto accident injury. All our passive and active therapies use a combination of exercises, stretches and natural treatments like chiropractic care to reduce your pain while building up your strength. We focus on rebuilding your abilities and capabilities with gradual changes to your exercise routine. The counseling we offer focuses on the underlying fears or anxieties that stem from a car accident injury or related concerns. The emotional responses to an accident stem from trauma and we help you move forward and manage the lingering fears or anxiety.

Treating an injury from a car accident allows you to focus on healing and recovering.
