How will my treatment be customized and who will be running treatment?

Here at the Denver Integrated Spinal Center we have a very unique facility. Basically, what our goal is, is we want to bring different types of treatment providers together, so we can really custom-make a treatment plan for any individual. Here we specialize in treating motor vehicle collisions, as well as anybody that’s just suffered any injury. We’ve combined chiropractic, physical therapy, medical doctor, acupuncture, as well as massage therapy.

Here, the medical doctor serves as our director, oversees all the cases, and will dispense medication when appropriate. Our chiropractors really focus on really working with the structure, as well as range of motion and mobility. Our physical therapists focus on stability, exercise and strengthening. Obviously, the massage therapist works on soft tissue. Additionally to that we can work with a lot more severe types of injuries including, disc herniation’s, bulges or protrusions. We have two different types of tables that we can really focus on to really get to the root of that problem.

It’s a lot more advanced, per se, then just a general chiropractic or physical therapists office. Basically, what it’s going to do is we are going to go in, target the specific disc that we need to work with and really start to get it to function better. Thus, reducing the pain down. All this comes together, and we wanted to create the facility to make it very easy for anybody that’s been in a crash. If anybody’s been in a crash, you know how difficult it can become and very quickly. If you want everything to be here in one place, just to really help you back to your normal, daily activities without near as much pain.

What Can I Expect After I Have Been Involved In A Car Accident?

Some people right after a crash don’t feel anything and that’s one of the things that we see a lot. People will come in numerous weeks after a crash with delayed symptoms. The main thing is that we want to make sure we can diagnose everything because simple symptoms can progress and develop into something severe.

If you’ve been a car accident, don’t hesitate to call Denver Integrated Spine Center today.

What Causes Neck Pain While Sitting At My Desk?

Neck pain is one of the things we see the most here at the Denver Integrated Spine Center. One of the most common reasons is just people’s general posture throughout their normal daily activities, especially sitting at their desk and at their computer.

When they sit at their desk and computer, they have a slump forward with the shoulders, neck becomes very far forward and people sit in this position for a sustained period of time. What we suggest throughout normal day, is taking numerous breaks. They don’t have to be long breaks, but reset the posture all the way back, do simple stretched – neck left, right, forward, back, up and down – and things like that really just to try to facilitate the proper motion again and reset the posture.

Some of the symptoms people could have, when they come into our office here when we sit down with them and talk to them, it can be just general neck pain as a whole. It can be just general tightness, especially from the back of the head back here all the way through the shoulders.

Super, super common, but the main thing is that we don’t let it progress because if it will start to progress, you can start to get headaches that would radiate up into the forehead, behind the eyes, just general tension headaches overall, or they can get a little bit more severe, you know, get numbness, tingling, pains going down into the arms. Those are things that we treat here at the center and if you have any of those symptoms, just come see us.

Why Do I Get Neck Pains And Strains When Sitting At My Desk At Work?

When people sit at their desk and computer, they have a slump forward with the shoulders, the neck becomes ver far forwards and people sit in this position for a sustained period of time. What we suggest throughout the normal day, is taking numerous breaks.

If you’re worried if your neck pain is normal or not, consult a chiropractor, and give Denver Integrated Spine Center a call today.

Can a Chiropractor Help During a Legal Case After an Auto Accident?

ACTAR is the acronym for the Accreditation Commission for Traffic Accident Reconstructionists. That was a group, that’s the only group, that certifies accident recontrsuctionists in the world, and I’ve have gone to court in the past to try to help my patients explain how their injuries occurred.

I was never really allowed to do that, so I decided to go take the same classes that all of the police officers do to become accident reconstructionists. I did that through CSU and the Rocky Mountain Institute for Transportation Safety. What I did is I was always the only non-police officer in the course, and I took all the course work, sat for the ACTAR certification examination, and passed that, and became a certified accident reconstructionist.

This allows me to talk about the bio-mechanics of what happens to you in a motor vehicle collision. It allows me to determine how fast people were going when they hit you, and this allows me to help you come to a fair and just resolution of your medical legal aspects of being in a motor vehicle collision.

Pain Triggered Weeks After an Auto Accident

Having pain come on days later or weeks later is not only common, it is the norm. It happens more often than not. People who have been in a motor vehicle collision will have a lot of adrenaline running through their body, so they don’t feel it until they actually get home and start to relax a little bit. The inflammatory process starts in, starts to inflame muscles, joints, ligaments, and those will cause pain over the next few days.

What also happens in motor vehicle collisions is that the spine is actually knocked out of alignment, and they get what we call forward head posture or ventral head posture where the spine is actually out of alignment. That leads to problems later on in life, much later on in life unless it’s corrected.

Also, disc issues are not only manifested right away with a tear in the disc, but it represents a weakened area of that disc. Sometimes that will propagate, so you can get symptoms like 6 months later that are associated with the motor vehicle collision.
