Chiropractic care is a natural alternative to surgery and medications.
Misalignment or restricted motion of the spinal bones places pressure on adjacent nerves, affecting nerve communication between our brain and body, which can be the underlying cause of many health problems beyond just back pain and headaches. Auto accidents, injuries, stress, tension, overexertion and many other factors can result in misalignments of the spinal column, otherwise known as subluxations. Chiropractic adjustments remove this nerve interference and therefore target the source of pain rather than simply treating the symptoms.
Chiropractic care is based on the principle that reducing or eliminating the irritation of spinal nerves allows the human body to heal itself and operate more efficiently.
Chiropractic also places an emphasis on nutritional and exercise programs, wellness and lifestyle modifications for promoting physical and mental health.
Dr. Keegan Quigley practices Diversified Technique, which utilizes a combination of modalities to diagnose and treat each patient’s unique source of pain. Chiropractic treatment always begins with a thorough physical, chiropractic and neurological examination, including x-rays when necessary. After the examination and diagnosis of a patient’s condition, a specific treatment plan is developed. A treatment plan may include some or all of the following modalities.
During an automobile collision a tremendous amount of force can be exerted on the body causing injury to the muscles, ligaments, bones, and nerves. Even at speeds as low as 5 miles per hour, injuries can occur. It can take up to 7-10 days after an accident to experience whiplash symptoms. Therefore, it is important to have a chiropractic or medical examination right away. In the state of Kentucky each individual’s car insurance will cover a minimum of $10,000 of medical expenses, including chiropractic, whether the accident was your fault or not.
Studies have shown that chiropractic is safe and effective at treating auto accident injuries. Patient satisfaction surveys show that patients are typically more satisfied with the treatment they receive from their chiropractor than their medical doctor for musculoskeletal injuries.
