The effects of such accidents can worsen or can lead to long-term pain if they are not addressed right away. The body also may not be able to feel the full extent of some injuries until hours, days, or weeks later due to adrenaline and other stressors masking the pain.

Whether it is back pain, whiplash or other symptoms resulting from an accident, chiropractic care can bring your body back to how it used to be pre-accident. Dr. Joshua and Dr. Ashley Lederman will work with each patient to find the most effective course of action.

Treatments for Auto Accident and Personal Injuries at Lederman Chiropractic & Sports Medicine

Chiropractic Care: Regular chiropractic adjustments with Dr. Joshua and Dr. Ashley Lederman provide effective pain relief for a variety of conditions. Both chiropractors provide patients of all ages with a non-surgical alternative to healing pain and injury. Mckenzie method and other adjustment techniques are used at the practice in order to remove irritation to spinal nerves.

McKenzie Method: Mckenzie method is a complete program of assessment, treatment and prevention strategies (including exercise) that are determined by Dr. Joshua and Dr. Ashley Lederman depending on the unique needs of each patient. With the mckenzie approach, exercise and other rehabilitation modalities are used to extend the spine. This can help centralize the patient’s pain by moving it away from the extremities (leg or arm) to the back. Centralizing the pain allows the source of the pain to be treated rather than the symptoms.

Rehabilitation: A full rehabilitation and therapeutic exercise program is essential to ensure a patient’s full recovery and to prevent further injury. These exercises can include muscle stretching, joint mobility exercises and muscle strengthening exercises. Correction of muscle imbalance problems around the shoulder, hip or knee are addressed effectively with exercise rehabilitation guided by a trained professional. Core stability muscles are also an important part of the treatment of chronic lower back pain.

Massage Therapy: Massage therapy plans are tailored to each patient. Techniques may include stroking, tapping, kneading, vibration, friction, compression, rocking and different forms of pressure to the muscles. During a session, some specific motions and vibrations can be applied with mechanical devices. Oil, lotions and powders are also used to reduce friction.

Diagnostic Imaging Referrals: At Lederman Chiropractic & Sports Medicine, Dr. Joshua and Dr. Ashley Lederman refer their patients to an off-site facility if any x-rays, MRI scans or CT scans are needed. Both chiropractors refers patients to Bright Light Imaging which is also located in Wheaton, IL!

Electrical Stimulation/Ultrasound: Electrical stimulation and ultrasound are physical therapy modalities used by Dr. Joshua and Dr. Ashley Lederman at Lederman Chiropractic & Sports Medicine. Electric muscle stim is used to stimulate muscle contractions using electrodes hooked up to an electric stimulation machine. These contractions help to manage inflammation, strengthen the muscle and control pain. Ultrasound therapy uses sound waves to deliver deep heat to the pain areas of the body. As a result of ultrasound, patients often experience a reduction of pain, swelling and stiffness in addition to pain-free movement and increased circulation.
