Car Accident Injury Services
Free Auto Accident Consultations
Injured victims of car accidents are sometimes unsure as to the steps they need to take for health care after the accident. They don’t know who or what specialty to look for. In any case when a person receives serious injuries resulting for any type of accident, it is a great idea to consult with a family chiropractor at Koenig Chiropractic early on for specific advice.
The initial consultation is free and we can explain the process of which insurance or insurances are liable for the care you need after the free consultation. Our doctors also work with an extensive network of other health care practitioners and can help refer you out if you need more than just chiropractic services.
Five Star Care
A new study from the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics shows that when it comes to chiropractic care, patients are very satisfied with their treatment.
The survey included a sample of 486 patients from 96 chiropractic clinics who responded to questionnaires about their use and perception of chiropractic care. The results indicated that:
- 96% of chiropractic patients said chiropractic treatment was beneficial for their overall health and well being.
- 91% of patients said chiropractors helped them take more responsibility for their personal health.
- 97% of patients said they would seek chiropractic care again.
A preventative care plan can be designed for any patient after they have completed a complete rehabilitative care plan after a car accident or any other type of injury. The goal of the preventative plan is to prevent any residual injuries from causing any major impact on normal activities of daily living.
Most patients that continue on with a preventative care plan state they have more energy, less body pain and can live a better life.
If you are looking for a way to prevent neck pain, headaches, migraines, low back pain, back stiffness or soreness in the body a preventative care plan could be the answer you are looking for. These plans are designed for each person and the patient then has the opportunity to decide what works best for their schedule.
If you have any question about a preventative care plan please don’t hesitate to call (508) 746-5899 for a free consultation with Dr. Koenig.
A chiropractic adjustment is the chiropractic technique using a specific low-force in a precise direction applied to a bone that is subluxated, “stuck,” or not moving properly.
This adjustment adds motion to the spinal joints helping the bone gradually return to its normal position and restore proper motion. By doing this, the adjustment releases tension or stress from the neighboring spinal nerves and spinal cord, leading to relief, improved nerve function and improved health.
Are all patients adjusted the same way? A very simple, No. The doctor evaluates each patient’s unique spinal exam and x-ray findings and then develops an individual care program. The resulting recommendations are based upon years of training and experience. At Koenig Chiropractic we customize the type of adjustments given to suit each individual.
Do spinal adjustments weaken or loosen the spine in any way? In one word, no. Spinal adjustments restore the back to a normal, healthy motion and position that each spinal segment requires. This actually leads to a stronger and more stable spine. Because spinal adjustments, delivered by a trained chiropractic doctor, do not injure or weaken the muscular and ligamentous structures of the spine they do not cause any weakening or “loosening” of the spine. In order for the spine to be strong and able to withstand the various forces and stresses of daily life the spinal bones must be in normal alignment and have their normal amount of movement.
Since a chiropractic adjustment is a specific force, applied in the specific direction, to a specific spinal bone, it is virtually impossible to adjust oneself. It is possible to turn or bend or twist in certain ways to create a “popping” sound, like the sound that often accompanies a chiropractic adjustment. Unfortunately, this type of joint “manipulation” is usually counterproductive, often making an already unstable area of the spine even weaker. This is also true for well-meaning friends or family members who are “chiropractor wanna-be’s”. Adjusting the spine is not for amateurs! Chiropractors themselves seek out the services of their colleagues to maintain their spinal health. Dr. Koenig has been and will be adjusted every Thursday for the rest of his life.
Hospital Grade Digital X-Ray System Our state-of-the-art image processing system enhances and optimizes the diagnostic quality of digital radiographic images far exceeding that of conventional film.
Digital images are available within seconds and offer exceptional, consistent image quality while preserving diagnostic detail. In addition, these images offer enhanced fine detail and soft-tissue contrast with better compensation for thick body parts. This allows us to provide better, safer patient care.
Koenig Chiropractic is the first spinal corrective care facility in Plymouth, MA to utilize this powerful and unique technology and we combine it with the most advanced Digital X-ray analysis software: PostureRay™.
PostureRay™ is the only digital analysis software to use the proprietary full spine models developed by the CBP Research team of engineers and mathematicians and published in some of the top Spine Journals in the world: Spine, Journal of Orthopedic Research; European Spine Journal; and the Journal of Spinal Disorders.
Motion X-rays are also taken on all car accident patients to show any ligament and soft tissue damage. Seeing this allows our doctor to make a more precise care plan and exercise routine to enable the patient to fully recover and cut down on the time it takes.
Restore Joint Mobility
After a whiplash injury occurring in a motor vehicle collision or slip and fall injury, a person will have spinal joints that have become lock, but a more serious issue is some spinal joints will have excess motion.
Dr. Koenig has attended numerous seminars on whiplash treatment to learn to treat both types of injuries. The reason excess motion is so detrimental to the spine because it is the precursor to bone spurring in the spine or what is better known as osteoarthritis.
With the type of treatment plans Koenig Chiropractic designs for each patient, we help unlock all the joints that have become stiff and painful but we also strengthen and give home rehab work to restore proper biomechanics and strength in the weakened joints resulting from the whiplash.
