Atlanta Personal Injury Care • Chiropractic Care
PSS Injury & Wellness Center in East Atlanta helps patients recover from the pain and loss of mobility they may have suffered as the result of a personal injury. Patients frequently come to our center for treatment of an injury incurred as the result of an auto accident. They may be dealing with discomfort and immobility issues due to neck pain, back pain, headaches and migraines, musculoskeletal injuries, soft tissue damage or broken bones.
Another common type of personal injury is a slip and fall accident, which may occur at work, on someone’s property, or at a business establishment. A slip and fall accident can result in a misalignment of the neck or spine, damage to the soft tissue surrounding the spinal column, or swelling and inflammation.
Other injuries besides a slip and fall accident often occur at work. Overexertion, a back injury due to lifting heavy objects; pain from standing or sitting in one position too long; or, a repetitive motion injury such as carpal tunnel syndrome are other examples of common work injuries treated. Many patients experience carpal tunnel as the result of working on a computer, but it can also hinder hair stylists, construction workers, musicians, and those who work on an assembly line.
Massage Therapy Combined with Chiropractic Care for Pain Relief
Dr. Schneider or Dr. Jahdai-Brown will perform an examination and thoroughly document the extent of your injuries. A treatment plan may consist of both chiropractic care and massage therapy to relieve pain, improve range of motion and restore mobility.
Depending on the type of injury, our chiropractor may use spinal adjustments and chiropractic manipulation to restore alignment to your spine, which will provide relief for back pain and neck pain. We may use specific types of hands-on adjustments for soft tissue injuries or employ the Graston Technique where we use specially-designed tools to resolve adhesions in your tendons and muscles. Mechanical traction may be appropriate in cases involving whiplash or slipped discs. For some patients, the use of TENS neurostimulation or neuromuscular education may be helpful in retraining muscles to work properly.
Our chiropractor may also implement massage therapy as a form of relaxation, rehabilitation and regeneration. Swedish massage, neuromuscular therapy and deep-tissue massage help restore damaged tissue, relieve sore muscles, improve joint mobility and encourage the flow of oxygen-rich blood.
No matter what type of personal injury you may have suffered, from carpal tunnel to a slip and fall, let the doctors at PSS Injury & Wellness Center help get you back on your feet again. If you are experiencing symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, headaches and migraines, stiffness, or immobility due to the actions of another person, make an appointment with our Atlanta chiropractor today.
