Car accidents tend to produce injuries despite how low the speed or minimal the impact. Initially, the pain or stiffness may not be limiting enough to miss work or see a doctor, but it may become chronic and begin to affect your daily activities. Seeing a chiropractor after a car accident may uncover any underlying injuries that traditional medicine might miss.
Adjustments & Manipulations
When vertebrae are out of alignment, it can affect the flow of the messages that our brain sends to our body. An adjustment is often the application of pressure by the chiropractor to move a vertebrae back into place.

Custom Foot Orthotics
The need for orthotics is often related to issues with the natural functioning of the foot, such as knee, foot and lower back pain. Orthotics will often help to realign the bones within the foot and ankle and therefore take pressure of other parts of the body such as the back, neck, shoulders and hips. In addition, orthotics will help with distributing your weight properly and take further pressure off of toes, bunions and other parts of the foot.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold Laser Therapy is an excellent treatment that is often utilized to treat a wide array of conditions and pain. This therapy allows the body to naturally heal itself by utilizing a combination of electric stimulation and cold laser technology. This low level laser therapy consists of a light-emitting device that can be utilized on many different parts of the body.
Chronic Pain Treatments
Repetitive injuries and trauma can cause chronic back pain to develop over time. Dr. Yacucci has established a treatment protocol that combines manual therapies, exercises and nutrition, as well as working along with other pain practitioners. While following this protocol, many patients have been able to decrease the use of pain medication and increase their physical activity.
Therapeutic Exercise & Core Strengthening
Targeting specific zones of the body can increase flexibility and improve overall fitness. Various exercises are available that focus on particular muscle areas. These activities promote better movement and can lead to a more toned body.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Electrical Muscle Stimulation is an exceptional way to help the body in the healing process. This is accomplished by sending a very small electrical current into the affected soft tissue injury or muscle spasm. The therapy utilizes this current in an effort to help reduce swelling and release trigger points that may have the muscle locked up. It does this by provoking the release of the bodys natural relievers of pain; relaxing the muscles and allowing a body to return to its normal state.
Therapeutic massage is an excellent method for improving overall health and musculoskeletal efficiency. Massage aids in the removal of toxins that can build up in the muscles of the body, improves circulation, and increases flexibility in both muscles and connective tissue within the body. Oncology massage is an adaptation of massage performed by a therapist who, following comprehensive training in general massage therapy, has completed additional training that addresses a spectrum of cancer-related issues to work safely and effectively with people living with cancer.
