Whiplash & Brain Injury Treatment

Woman holding neck after accidentFollowing a car crash, the forces involved in the impact cause you to lose the natural curves in your spine. Tendons and ligaments are damaged. If left unaddressed, it will cause lifelong issues. At Oberg Chiropractic at Chiropractic Associates of Fort Collins, Dr. Oberg is a certified whiplash and brain injury traumatologist, certified by The Spine Research Institute of San Diego.

The common symptoms you’ll experience after a motor vehicle accident include

  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Headaches
  • Loss of use in the hands and feet
  • Numbness and tingling

At our office, you’ll have access to our X-ray suite. We can take images to see the effects of the collision on your spine and determine which changes need to be made. We also provide stress tests that will tell us if and when you are strong enough to complete corrective exercises and what they will do for you.

After making changes, we’ll monitor your condition with regular progress examinations and X-rays. That’s important not just for you, but for the insurance companies, who will be able to see that ongoing care is warranted.

With your chiropractic care, we make changes to the spine. The upper part of your spine is attached to the brain stem. When the upper spine is adjusted, it takes pressure off the nerves in that area, which can assist with the healing of a brain injury.

Everything has a season, and healing is no different. After an accident, you can expect a recovery period that lasts a little longer than for a typical injury. Usually, about three months of care is the average. Along with your chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Oberg will prescribe Pettibon exercises. These exercises stretch out shortened ligaments and break up the scar tissue that forms after an accident. Laser therapy may be a part of your care, which will increase the mitochondria of the cell to enhance your progress.

When is it too late to seek treatment?

The longer you wait, the more challenging and possibly, the more it will cost. We will work with you no matter how long it’s been, but if you have closed your case or the statute of limitations has passed, insurance will not cover the cost.
How long do I have to be under care?

It depends on the severity and how much your spine has changed. We will look at your case and present a treatment plan specific for your case.
