About Physical Therapy
Physical therapy includes a variety of therapeutic procedures focused on reducing swelling, inflammation, and muscle spasm. These techniques include massage, application of heat and ice, exercise, traction, and muscle stimulation. Along with Chiropractic care these physical therapy techniques can help with acute and chronic pain, and improving the quality of your life.
At Ringer Chiropractic, we provide comprehensive services including chiropractic care, physical therapy techniques, and corrective exercises. These services relieve acute or chronic pain, ease stiffness and increase the range of motion in your joints, help you recover from musculoskeletal injuries sustained in auto accidents, and more. At Ringer Chiropractic, we also offer advanced services to optimize healing and wellness, including nutritional counselling and lifestyle advice.

Physical therapy treats a variety of chronic pain conditions, including rotator cuff tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, golfer's and tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis that makes your feet hurt, sciatica, and arthritis. Physical therapy can also help relieve acute pain that lasts up to 12 weeks. Acute conditions responsive to physical therapy include muscles strains, sprains, and tendinitis.

Physical Therapy for Whiplash after an Auto Accident
Whiplash can occur after a rear-end collision, especially to passengers of the car being hit from behind. The abrupt motion of a rear-end collision, even one at low speeds, whips your head back and forth violently in a way that injures the muscles and ligaments in your neck. While most common in an auto accident, whiplash can also occur after a fall, work injury, sports injury, or any other type of incident that jerks your head violently back and forth.
Whiplash causes pain and stiffness in your neck, making it difficult to turn your head. Pain and stiffness may radiate down your shoulders, back and arms. Physical therapy techniques can help relieve pain and restore function to the affected muscles.
If you have been in an auto accident, especially if you were in the lead car involved in a rear-ender, you should consider treatment from Ringer Chiropractic right away - even before you feel symptoms of whiplash. The symptoms of whiplash may not appear for 24 to 48 hours after your car accident but the damage to your muscles and ligaments continues to worsen, even before pain and stiffness set in. Our chiropractors and therapy can provide the relief you need for acute or chronic pain. Contact Ringer Chiropractic today if you have been in an auto accident and start feeling better today.
