BOCA RATON, Fla., Sept. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Boca Raton,
Florida, chiropractor Dr. Allan DellaBella aims to raise awareness
about the lasting impacts of whiplash after auto accidents. He is
particularly concerned about sharing how it impacts the people after
even the smallest accident. In addition, whiplash is often difficult
for general medicine practitioners to treat. It requires a combination
of treatments designed to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and realign
the spine. “In some rare cases, surgery may be warranted,” says Dr.
DellaBella, “but we consider that a last resort with so many effective
treatment combinations available to exhaust first — and chiropractic
care is one of the best options.”
Shadowood Chiropractic Center chiropractor, Dr. Allan DellaBella is
interested in raising awareness about whiplash and what it means for
people recovering from car accidents in the Boca Raton, Florida,
community. Whiplash can be chronic. Unfortunately, it is not a
condition that goes away after a few quick trips to the chiropractor.
It may cause pain and require consistent treatment over the course of a
What most people don’t realize about whiplash is that they do not need
to be in a major accident in order to sustain this particular injury.
In fact, low-impact and slow crashes are among the most common
accidents in which whiplash injuries occur, according to Boca Raton
chiropractor, Dr. DellaBella.
“Another misconception about whiplash,” says Dr. DellaBella, “is that
it should be immediately obvious. In some cases, whiplash can be
asymptomatic for a after the accident. That’s why it’s so important to
consult with a chiropractor as quickly as possible after being in an
accident – no matter how minor.”
In addition to causing varying degrees and intensities of pain,
whiplash injuries can limit range of motion. There are symptoms other
than neck pain associated with whiplash injuries too, including lower
back pain, headaches, insomnia, chronic fatigue, irritability and
numbness in the arm.
Chiropractic treatment offers some of the best “medicine” for whiplash
injuries. Not because of medications, but because it seeks to restore
alignment so the body can work more efficiently – reducing stress on
the soft tissue areas where the pain is most intense.
Dr. DellaBella uses the Thompson Drop Table Technique. This technique
involves positioning the patient face down on a special table designed
to drop various pieces so that gravity, thrust, and force help restore
alignment and balance for faster pain relief.
More than an auto accident chiropractor, Dr. DellaBella also offers
personalized recommendations for all his patients to help them maintain
proper alignment once the visit ends.
People living with pain in the aftermath of an auto accident are
encouraged to call Shadowood Chiropractic Center at 561-488-4000 to
schedule an appointment and get relief today.
