Auto Injury

Auto Accident Chiropractor In Herndon, Tysons, Arlington & Surrounding Cities. - RxWellness Spine & Health

Getting involved in an auto accident is the last thing you expect or want to happen. Realizing you have been injured in an auto accident is even less desired. Yet it does happen, and in Virginia alone the Department of Motor Vehicles’ (DMV) most recent report showed 42,425 injuries related to auto accidents, and nearly a third of those 42,425 injuries were reported in Fairfax County. Your injury is real, which means you need to visit the chiropractic team at RxWellness Spine & Health in Herndon, VA right away for comprehensive treatment! The quicker care begins, the greater your chance of making a full recovery.

Dr. Golinsky recommends that an appointment is made immediately after an auto accident – even if you don’t believe you have sustained any serious injuries. Musculoskeletal injuries, including whiplash, often do not show symptoms until days or weeks after the auto accident, making it incredibly important to see a professional for care. Whether you have whiplash or an injury to your lower back, we can perform the following:

Spinal adjustments
Cold laser therapy
Massage therapy
Spinal Decompression
Physical Therapy

The RxWellness physical therapy program is unique to chiropractic, since our doctors use a combination of chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy. The program consists of 3 phases:

1. Relief Care

Relief care focuses solely on relieving the pain symptoms from your auto accident injury. During relief care only chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy are used. The goal of this phase is to minimize your symptoms from your injuries through noninvasive methods.

2. Corrective Care

During corrective care physical therapy begins. The primary focus of corrective care is to increase function and capacity for your daily activities through active rehabilitation. The exercises during physical therapy are aimed at restoring strength of muscles, stabilizing your posture, increasing range of motion, and reeducating your muscles.

3. Maintenance

Once you have completed the first two stages you should schedule periodic visits to maintain the optimal function you’ve regained. Routine spinal checkups and adjustments ensure that you don’t regress.

Our Program

Our physical therapy program is individualized to meet our patients’ needs. We adjust our physical therapy and active rehabilitation based on the extent of your auto accident injuries.

Physical therapy and chiropractic care complement each other for the overall health and wellness of our patients. A chiropractic adjustment puts the body in perfect alignment. Physical therapy strengthens the muscles to support the corrected alignment of the spine. Chiropractors who have a physical therapist are able to give the best treatment for the patient. Our auto accident patients have found the combination to have lasting success in relieving their pain from the accident.

We believe in treating the whole person in order for the patient to obtain optimal functionality, rather than just treating a symptom. When the body is in alignment and able to maintain that position through re-education of the muscles you can get back to living an active healthy lifestyle.

We also use other types of non-invasive chiropractic care to help heal the damage from the auto injury. Visiting the chiropractors at RxWellness Spine & Health for immediate evaluation, will allow them to diagnose and treat any injuries or pain before they restrict movement, or potentially slow down the healing process. At RxWellness Spine & Health, our auto accident chiropractors in Herndon, VA can help you get back on your feet, back to work, and back to living pain-free.

Should I go to the hospital after my car accident?
Depending upon the severity of the impact, it’s always a good idea to be safe than sorry. First, go to the emergency room to check for broken bones and concussions immediately after the car accident if the impact was major and especially, if airbags exploded. Second, be sure to do a follow-up with your local auto accident chiropractor for a more specialized evaluation for potential soft tissue damage, even if no broken bones were detected in the ER. Even concussions can be treated by an experienced auto accident chiropractor.
Is it normal to feel sore all over my body after a car accident?
Yes, the soreness is a symptom of whiplash and other soft tissue damage as a result of the car accident. You should schedule an appointment with your local auto accident chiropractor as soon as possible in order to avoid long term damage to your spine and muscle tissue.
How is Whiplash affecting my body?
If you are experiencing whiplash after an accident, this points to a misalignment of your spine and soft tissue damage. Auto accident chiropractors are trained to correct the misalignment and treat your symptoms.
What is the difference between Physical Therapy and Chiropractic Care?
Physical therapists are able to relieve muscular stress, however they are not trained to correct spinal misalignments. Chiropractors are doctors of the spine who can correct misalignments and treat soft tissue damage resulting from the car accident.
Why should I see a chiropractor after my car accident?
You may not realize that even if you have no pain the day of your accident, it’s still important to be evaluated by a chiropractor specializing in car accidents. It is common for people to not feel pain until a few days after, or even a week after their accident. The lack of immediate pain is misleading and could cause further damage down the road.
Why am I experiencing back pain after my car accident?
Many times the impact from the car causes your spine and body to go out of alignment. The misalignment causes pain and discomfort along your spine and neck, which could affect other parts of your body. An auto accident chiropractor can treat the injury and fix the misalignment in your spine.
How am I going to pay for all my medical bills?
If the offending driver was issued a ticket, then the fault is on the driver. That means the liability and all payments will come from that person’s insurance company. Therefore, no money will come out of your pocket for property damage (car), missed work and bodily injury. Bring the claim number to your first appointment. If you have questions about your claim number and would like to schedule an appointment for your car accident injuries call 703-904-9666 and our friendly staff will assist you.
