Have you had an accident? Planet Chiropractic is your place in Douglas County to find and cure the source of your back pain. In most cases, an accident will cause a shift the spine that ignites a structural shift and a whole world of pain. At Planet Chiropractic we’ll make sure that we not only help repair the damaged muscles and ligaments but we'll also make the necessary structural change so you don't develop long-term problems. When left unaddressed, these structural issues are often masked by the shock of the accident and don’t register as problems for a few weeks.
The back is an intricate interlocking set of bones, joints, ligaments and muscles. Without proper exercise and precision in your movements, you can sprain ligaments, strain muscles, rupture disks, and irritate joints, all of which can lead to intense back pain. While everyone is aware of how sports injuries or accidents can cause back pain, sometimes even the simplest of movements can have painful results.
Unlike many other clinics, we don’t believe chiropractic care is the “end-all” solution for every situation or individual. Our goal is to examine the core structure of your spine asking the question: “Did this accident or hit cause a structural issue in your body?” If it did, this is a great place to help your body recover. If the accident did not cause underlying structural issues, but rather, caused a rip or a tear in a ligament or muscle, then we are happy to make recommendations or referrals to experts in other medical fields.
Most major accidents involve some form of extended record keeping. We at Planet Chiropractic are experienced in gathering and recording these details. If you have been in an auto or work related accident and need to document all of your treatment details—we’ve got your back! We've been doing that for the last 10 years.
