Vehicle Related Injuries
As a citizen of Islip, we’re sure you’ve experienced the unpredictable traffic patterns on Route 27 Sunrise Highway. Even on days where it seems to be moving along well, you can suddenly find yourself in a car accident. Maybe you were backing out of a spot at the Islip Public Library and got hit from the side or perhaps on your way to Islip Town Hall you got into a fender bender. Initially, you may believe you haven’t suffered any injuries if you don’t immediately feel pain. Although we would all like to walk away from any accident injury free, that is not always the case. The reason why you may not instantly feel pain is due to an adrenaline rush. Also known as epinephrine, adrenaline is sent throughout the bloodstream as one of the body’s essential defense mechanisms during a threat or stress. An injury such as whiplash is the most common after a car accident. The next day, any injuries may become more noticeable after soreness arises in your legs, back, shoulders and neck.
Activity and Athletic Related Injuries
Accidents that lead to injuries can come in many ways, not only from being on the road. A game of ultimate frisbee at Islip Beach could leave you with lower back pain. Maybe you were working on your boat at the West, Middle or East Canal and took a bad fall leaving you with severe neck pain. Even casually bicycling around the neighborhood can lead to a pop or crack in your knee that later has you seeking medical attention. A pick-up game of basketball could suddenly have your ankle radiating with pain after a collision and chiropractic care can help in numerous ways. Dependent on your injury and treatment plan, you may feel significant improvement from massage and trigger point therapy which Total Chiropractic Care & Wellness offers.
Alternate Options to Surgical Treatment
Whether it be driving, at work, or at home, poor day to day posture can slowly lead to an onset of consistent pain. We’re aware of the frustration you may be experiencing due to this and offer services such as spinal decompression that may be a suitable treatment for your particular pain. Bad posture coupled with stress will only further tense up the muscles in your body and leave you in need of treatment from a medical professional. You may have been experiencing migraines, tension headaches, and even jaw pain for quite some time. If you’re looking for an alternative to heavy pain medication or if you ever find yourself in any of these situations, Dr. Todd Goldman of Total Chiropractic can offer you chiropractic care to help relieve any pain you might be experiencing.
