Oh, what a pain in the neck! That’s how many who go to Falls Church, VA, chiropractor Dr. Shirine Hegazi feel before undergoing treatment. When someone is in an auto accident, suffers injury from a sports-related mishap or is injured in another way, one area that is often affected is their neck.
The neck is a precarious part of the body as its job is to support the head while allowing the pathway for the spine to function. A healthy, pain-free neck is essential for anyone who wants to enjoy life to the fullest. For those who have been in an auto accident, whether minor or major, the pain can be difficult to diagnose and treat. Often they seek the benefits they find through the various healing methods employed by Dr. Hegazi at Concept Chiropractic and Rehab
Injuries Not Always Apparent
Dr. Hegazi and other chiropractors who are knowledgeable and experienced in treating neck injuries know that often the full extent of the injury isn’t known for days, weeks and even months. Pain can develop in one area of the body and then later ne felt in the neck as the body reacts to injuries that are slowly manifesting themselves.
When patients go to the Falls Church VA chiropractor, they are given a full examination that includes questions focusing on recreating the accident. In this way, the doctor is able to better understand and diagnose any possible injuries. Treatment at the Concept Chiropractic and Rehab, which is noninvasive and gentle, includes chiropractic techniques and physical rehab.
Using a holistic approach, Dr. Hegazi is able to encourage the various systems of the body to work together towards healing. One foundation of holistic medicine is the precept that the body has a natural ability to heal itself and that this is preferred over invasive procedures.
Although it is true that drug therapy will lessen and relieve pain, it is also true that it will not heal the injury. And although masking pain can be temporarily reassuring to a patient, eventually drugs, which always include a host of side effects, wear off and the condition still exists.
The focus of Falls Church, VA chiropractor Dr. Hegazi is to promote healing quickly, painlessly and thoroughly. Those suffering from neck injuries often find that they start to get relief after one visit, and as treatment proceeds, they are able to find the path back to normal activity. By opening up the communicative, healing pathways of the body with chiropractic treatment, patients then find that they are ready for the next step—physical rehab.
With a little bit of time and patience, auto accident victims and those who have suffered injuries through other activities, discover that there is not only hope but also healing. This proactive approach offers positive results that last a lifetime.
