Medford Chiropractor Explains Why Chiropractic Works
At Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness, Medford chiropractor, Dr. Goldman has been helping people achieve pain relief and better overall health for nearly two decades. The majority of our patients are looking for relief from back pain, neck pain, headaches, car accident injuries, and sport-related injuries. However, there is more to chiropractic care than just reacting to an injury or painful condition. It’s about being proactive through good posture and correct spinal alignment in all of one’s daily activities.
Spinal Health Improves with Chiropractic Care
Your mother gave you excellent advice when she told you not to slouch. Dr. Goldman teaches each patient that their posture—the correct alignment of all the vertebrae in your spine—is the foundation of good health. This is because your spine is the conduit for your spinal cord; the network cable that connects your brain to every other part of your body. As nerves split off from the spinal cord to their many destinations around the body, they pass between the various vertebrae on their way. When the spine is correctly aligned, these nerves can safely deliver their messages to and from the brain and the brain can direct any processes that need to occur. When the vertebrae are out of alignment, however, nerves are pinched. A pinched nerve cannot deliver these messages and a state of dysfunction starts to develop. These problems may start out small, but without correction in the form of chiropractic spinal adjustments, they can become painful and debilitating.

Experienced Long Island Chiropractor
Dr. Goldman is extensively trained and experienced in delivering chiropractic spinal adjustments to correct spinal misalignment, which is also known as “subluxations”. After a thorough examination and patient medical history, Dr. Goldman is able to pinpoint which vertebrae need correction. He then uses several different hands-on adjustment techniques to work the vertebrae back into their optimal position. This releases the pinched nerves, thus enabling your brain to do its job of directing healing resources and messages to areas of the body that need help.

Car Accident Injury Chiropractic Treatment
Chiropractic care is very helpful for people recovering from injuries that affect the body’s musculoskeletal alignment, which is common in car accident injuries. One of the specialty areas that Dr. Goldman is an expert in is chiropractic treatment after car accident injuries. Though most people take the safety measured needed for safe driving like wearing a seatbelt, driving below the speed limit, defensive driving, avoiding driving under the influence, using turn signals properly, and maintaining car maintenance, a car accident can happen to anyone.
Common Car Accident Injuries
Often times when you’re involved in a car accident, injuries can occur to the spine like herniated and/or protruding discs, and other injuries including muscle strains, soft tissue injuries, muscle spasms, and more. The most common form of injury that occurs as when an accident results in the neck and head to quickly snap forward and backward. This form of injury is called whiplash. Some of the common symptoms for whiplash include dizziness, headaches, and hearing or vision problems. If you’re experiencing any complications, pain, or symptoms, you should first get checked out at the hospital. When you’re cleared at the hospital, following up with your chiropractor can help speed up your healing and recovery from pain.
