Various forces from the accident “throws off” spinal alignment and causes muscle spasm and pain. Gentle chiropractic care treatments rebalance the body, decreasing pain and increasing ranges of motion.
Application of a variety of modalities including percussive massage therapy, trigger point therapy, cooling sprays and warm packs, cold infrared laser, electrical muscle stimulation, and ultrasound all increase faster tissue healing and repair and decrease pain and inflammation.
Once the body begins to rebalance from the accident, and inflammation and pain are decreasing, exercise rehabilitation including use of therabands, balance boards, and various isometric and isokinetic exercises all provide opportunities to strengthen surrounding musculature and ensure proper healing to avoid reinjury.
Acupuncture is another modality Dr. Ruggiero has been trained in that he has found to be greatly effective in “resetting the system” to decrease pain and inflammation and help patients to heal faster from soft tissue injuries.
