Kennewick WA Chiropractor, Dr. Eric Kurtz, Helps Locals Suffering With
Auto Accident Injuries
Kennewick, WA, 30-MAR-2012 - Columbia Basin Spinal Rehabilitation
Institute is pleased to announce that Dr. Eric Kurtz provides the
Kennewick whiplash care that is needed by individuals who have been
injured in auto accidents. The doctor addresses the injuries using a
"whole-body" approach that helps the body to heal more effectively and
gives the patient greater flexibility and mobility during the healing
When interviewed recently Dr. Kurtz stated, "I urge anyone who is
involved in an auto accident to visit my office as soon as possible after
the incident whether they feel any pain from injuries or not. In many
cases an individual involved in an accident does not feel pain and
stiffness for several hours or days after an incident occurs. By
evaluating the injury and beginning a program before symptoms begin to
present themselves, we can often avoid the long period of recuperation
that is required when a whiplash or other impact injury occurs. I work
very closely with my patients to make sure they receive the care and
education they need to address the injuries and increase their overall
health and wellness."
As part of the initial consultation, Dr. Kurtz performs a physical
examination that includes x-rays. He will ask questions about the
accident and any stiffness or pain that may be present. The doctor will
also discuss past medical history and previous injuries or pain, as well
as the diet and exercise regimen of the individual. Dr. Kurtz will
perform tests to determine flexibility and mobility and identify any
misaligned or compressed discs that may be pinching nerves and disrupting
proper circulation through the spine and neck.
After evaluating all of the data collected during the examination and
discussion the doctor will create an individualized program that will
address the immediate issues and help the body to heal more quickly and
effectively. The doctor will use gentle, low-force manipulation to
realign discs, relieve pinched nerves and restore circulation through the
spine. He will also include other therapies such as massage and hot/cold
therapy to stimulate oxygen to the damaged tissues and relieve
inflammation to the areas.
The doctor will often make recommendation for changes in the diet to
provide the body with the vitamins and nutrients needed to heal and
regenerate. In addition, exercises will be provided that are designed to
strengthen the muscle groups supporting the damaged area and increase
oxygen and circulation throughout the body.
