adobestock_16727683-1170x780At Glen Cove Chiropractic & Physical Therapy, we have the experience to be able to help you through this hard time. We are a top rated chiropractor and physical therapist with the expertise to assist you with your whiplash and auto accident injuries. We know how to evaluate and treat all types of injuries that can be the result of an accident. Our care is accurate, gentle and comfortable, and effective.

Without proper treatment, a car accident can lead to significant injuries, including chronic neck pain, back pain and recurring headaches. You do not have to be in a serious accident to sustain serious injuries. In fact, accidents at speeds as slow as 5 mph, including seemingly minor fender benders, can trigger significant pain. Dr. Cohen has been providing auto accident injury pain relief for many years.

Chiropractic care and physical therapy are effective drug free rehabilitation therapies for auto injuries because they target the underlying cause for your pain, rather than relying on medication to simply cover up pain symptoms. While prescription painkillers are great for immediate pain relief, this relief is only short-term. Medication works by numbing the brain’s perception of pain. Once the medication wears off, you will once again experience pain. Chiropractic care and physical therapy is different. By targeting the root trigger for your pain ­– we treat your pain at the source.

Most accidents result in a biomechanical injury to one or more area of the spine. These injuries can affect your spine, nerves, muscles, ligaments and tendons creating pain, numbness, tingly sensations, and/or loss of mobility. A biomechanical injury requires a biomechanical therapy and this is what we specialize in. Don’t wait, call today for your accident and injury evaluation.

Also known as HYPER EXTENSION/HYPER FLEXION is one of the most common auto accident injuries. This injury occurs when the force of a rear impact “whips” the cervical spine beyond its normal range of motion abruptly thrusting it backward and forward. This whipping action can lead to a cervical spine misalignment, triggering neck pain, headaches, migraines, TMJ problems and other recurring health problems. Chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy are a safe, effective and proven treatment option for restoring proper alignment to the cervical spine, alleviating the muscle and nerve compression that triggers neck pain and headaches. We also recommend corrective exercises that help bring a full range of mobility back to the neck without aggravating existing musculoskeletal injuries.

Symptoms of Whiplash:

      • Neck pain and stiffness
      • Headaches
      • Radiating pain, numbness or tingling to shoulders, arms and/or hands
      • Dizziness and irritability
      • Ringing in ears
      • Blurring Vision
      • TMJ problems

Back pain is very common injury that follows an auto accident. The force of an accident’s impact can knock the spine out of alignment, triggering chronic and recurring pain. If you are experiencing lower back pain, stiffness or soreness after a car accident, Dr. Cohen will conduct a full diagnostic evaluation to determine the extent of your injury. Our goal is to identify the specific triggers for your pain, such as spinal misalignment, nerve or muscle injury and take immediate action to relieve your pain.
