Depending on the severity of the crash, a car accident can cause different personal injuries to any part of your body. Here are the most common ones:
This is the most common injury after a car crash. It can come in various forms from whiplash to cervical dislocation. Whiplash is the mild form of neck injury which is caused by a serious snapping movement of the head.
Spinal Cord Injury
Damage to the spine is another common car accident injury. A very good example is a herniated disc which causes severe chronic back pain.
Back injury like sprain, strains, and vertebral fractures are most likely suffered by victims of car accidents. This usually results in long lasting pain manifested in the back and neck. Other victims may also suffer recurring headaches from back injuries.
Treatment utilizing MedX For Back and Neck Pain Relief
At the center for Total Back Care we provide state of the art treatment to get you back on the path of pain free living as soon as possible. Whether your pain is from a car accident, injury, genetic, or general weakness. We can get you back to a health life. One of the tools we utilize for this is MedX.
While there are so many other rehabilitation approaches to back and neck pain, the MedX Lumbar and Cervical Extension Machines are the only tools that can isolate the muscles of the spine, determine the source of pain or weakness, then customize the exercise, range of motion and resistance that strengthen this weakness. In short, the MedX machines accurately test the functional strength of the spine and also provide the best source of rehabilitative exercise.
When there is an injury in the back and neck, the body’s response is to stop using the injured muscles. Hence, these muscles weaken, remain inactive and completely atrophy. With the MedX Lumbar or Cervical Extension Machines, the injured muscles of the neck and back are isolated and targeted so that not only the bigger muscles of the body do all the work. As a result, there is an increase blood flow to the injured area, increase range of motion and decrease in pain. What was once an inflexible scar tissue then becomes a more functional scar because of the MedX Lumbar or Cervical Extension Machines.
