How Carrolltown Chiropractic and Cox® Technic Can Help After a Motor Vehicle Accident

If you’ve experienced a Carrolltown motor vehicle accident (MVA), it can leave you with serious spine-related pain in the neck or back. Fortunately, the Carrolltown chiropractic care with Cox® Technic at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation can help ease your auto accident pain. Let’s explore how this form of treatment can help back and/or neck pain sufferers after an auto accident.


A recent review of published papers on auto accident impairment ratings found a wide range of ratings after an accident - 2% to 23% for car occupants and 2.8% to 46% for cyclists – with cervical spine and neck injuries being the greatest risks for being permanently injured. This led the authors to suggest the development of a global way of evaluating medical impairment after accidents to reduce psychological and financial burdens for both the injured person and the community. (1) In creating guidelines to handle traffic injuries, an expert panel found that injured persons wished to partner with their healthcare team, desired a better understanding of the healthcare and insurance system sooner after their injury, needed support for their emotional distress, and appreciated uncomplicated explanations with easy-to-understand words. (2) For those who were concerned about returning to work, researchers found that those who held higher expectations of returning to work were more likely to do that. (3) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation encourages you to be optimistic and invites you to be a part of the team for healing!!


By our use of gentle chiropractic care including Cox® Technic as part of the treatment plan for post-auto accident spine injury, our Carrolltown patients can be optimistic. Cox Technic is an advanced form of chiropractic care that works to decrease inflammation and alleviate back pain. It is commonly used in cases of herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica, facet syndrome, degenerative disc disease, post-surgical low back or neck pain, and other forms of chronic lower back or neck pain. The technique works by using gentle yet firm pressure to treat the spine. This helps to restore mobility, reduce inflammation, and lower pain.

Benefits Of Cox Technic & How Does It Work?

One of the biggest benefits of Cox Technic is that it delibers relief from chronic lower back or neck pain without having to use drugs or undergo surgery. During a session, the patient lies down on their stomach (or other modified position for comfort) while the chiropractor uses his/her hands to apply pressure to certain points on the spine in order to attain maximum relief from pain and discomfort. This technique has been effective for helping many types of spinal injuries related to car accidents such as whiplash and herniated discs which can be quite painful if not treated appropriately.
