Lexington Chiropractor Focuses on Importance of Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injury Patients

LEXINGTON, Ky., May 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lifestyle Chiropractic in Lexington, KY announced that the practice has had great success providing auto accident injury treatment. Lexington chiropractor Dr. Mike Nemastil has been treating car accident injury patients since 1995. Dr. Nemastil uses a combination of chiropractic adjustments with supportive therapies, including whole body vibration, to help patients heal and start functioning normally again, following an accident injury. According to Dr. Nemastil, an accident injury will typically involve injury to soft tissues, like in a whiplash injury. Dr. Nemastil strongly recommends chiropractic care for this type of an accident injury. Chiropractic treatment and rehabilitation are very effective in managing pain and also helping the body to heal and achieve normal function again.

Dr. Mike Nemastil is raising awareness about the importance of treating auto accident injury patients. According to Dr. Nemastil, many patients don't know that chiropractic care can be a very effective form of treatment for an auto accident injury.

"Following an auto injury, experiencing neck, mid back and even low back pain can be typical," said Dr. Nemastil. "Many patients suffer a whiplash injury to the neck and sometimes also a seatbelt injury to the mid or low back from the twisting of the body that the seat belt causes upon impact. Unfortunately, traditional medical treatments of prescription painkillers and muscle relaxers only provide temporary symptom relief, and do not afford any rehabilitation for the injured areas. This could be a reason why so many people have chronic pain years after an accident; they never received the appropriate rehabilitative care."

Dr. Nemastil said people involved in car accidents should at least be checked to see if they have incurred any injury and need treatment. Dr. Nemastil mentioned that in the state of Kentucky car insurance pays 100% of all medically necessary and related treatment. He said, "Why not at least get checked out to see if you have any injury. That's why we all have insurance, to use it when it's needed."

Dr. Nemastil cautioned that auto accidents even at slow speeds can cause injury, even if you don't feel a lot of pain. Some patients may not experience pain until weeks or even months after the accident. This is one reason why Dr. Nemastil strongly encourages patients to seek immediate chiropractic care following an accident. "By treating an accident injury as soon as possible we can reduce the chronic pain syndromes that can occur," Dr. Nemastil stated.

"Our goal is to help the body heal as quickly and safely as possible," said Dr. Nemastil. "We frequently combine injury treatments, such as vibration therapy and corrective exercises with spinal adjustments in order to promote healing. We create unique treatment plans for each patient based on their needs."

The family chiropractic center also provides wellness care for sports injury and personal injury patients. Visit http://lschiro.com for more information about the practice.
