FAQ of Auto Accident Injury Treatment

How Soon After an Accident Should I Seek Chiropractic Care?

We would like to see you as soon as possible after a Federal Way auto accident injury. The sooner Dr. Scholes evaluates your condition and determines the source of your injury, the sooner we are able to implement your chiropractic care plan. We begin by reducing swelling and pain at the injury site. This helps your body heal as it increases circulation to the injured area. Also, when you begin chiropractic care immediately for an auto accident injury, you lessen the chances that the injury turns into a chronic condition.

What Techniques Are Used to Treat My Injuries?

Dr. Scholes uses a variety of chiropractic techniques to adjust your spine and joints. The Diversified technique positions your neck and back into a healthy alignment. Our chiropractor uses her hands to manually adjust you by applying gentle force on the vertebrae or joints. She may also use a drop table to support your body and position it for the best adjustments. Dr. Scholes offers tool adjustments for pin-point precision in areas such as your wrists, lower back, neck, ankles and shoulders to quickly apply an effective amount of force and slide the vertebrae and joint into position. A body in alignment moves freer and with less pain. It stimulates blood flow and healing to your injured areas.

What Types of Injuries do you Care for?

At Thrive Chiropractic and Wellness Center we care for all types of auto accident injuries. If you are complaining of whiplash, headaches, concussions, neck pain, back pain, disc herniation, sciatica, hip pain or have limited mobility or weakness in your arms and legs, we can help you. Chiropractic care, including massage therapy and rehabilitative exercises, work together to mend your injuries and return your strength. Dr. Scholes carefully evaluates your injuries and seeks to eliminate pain and stimulate healing. 

Do Chiropractic Adjustments Hurt?

The last thing you want when you are already in pain, is to have more pain. Our adjustments are gentle and you will not feel pain with chiropractic care. The most you feel is slight muscle soreness as your body adapts to the new positions and repairs its injuries.
