Car accident injuries can take all forms, from mild to severe. Sometimes, you don't even realize you have been injured until days, weeks, or even months after the accident. This is especially true with soft tissue injuries. Things like whiplash, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, head pain, herniated discs, and more are all common and seemingly mild to moderate injuries that can show up immediately or take a while to notice. When you do notice them, they can cause a lot of pain. Fortunately, these are all injuries that are commonly and usually successfully treated by chiropractors.

How Does Our Loveland Chiropractors Treat Auto Accident Injuries?

There are a variety of techniques our chiropractors can use to heal your injury and eliminate the pain. It usually takes a few sessions, or sometimes months or a year or more of sessions to achieve permanent results, but these methods do work. There are thousands of scientific studies supporting the use of chiropractic medicine in treating car accident injuries, and millions of happy people who have been healed by them. Here are some of the techniques your chiropractor may use to heal you. The techniques used and the amount of time it takes to achieve full healing all depend on your unique injury and your overall health and physical condition at the time of the injury.

  • Sacral Occipital Technique--This normalizes the relationship between the bottom and top of the spine, relieving pain by relieving tension and pressure on the vertebrae.
  • Thompson Technique--This technique uses a drop table in conjunction with traditional chiropractic thrusts to give a smoother, more accurate spinal adjustment.
  • Activator Technique--Requires very little actual touch, and no twisting or turning the patient. Adjustments are done with a hand-held instrument that can put just the right amount of pressure on individual vertebrae to adjust them. Perfect for children, the frail, and the elderly.
  • Cox-Flexion/Distraction--A gentle, non-force adjustment procedure.
  • Diversified--This is a group of four techniques taught at the nations first chiropractic college. Used together, the Diversified technique produces amazing results in many patients.
  • Spinal Decompression---Our clinic has two of the only five chiropractors in Colorado who are nationally certified in Spinal Decompression. This technique allows the spine to expand, allowing room for vertebrae to fall naturally back into place.
  • Certified CBP Colorado Chiropractic Biophysics--Our clinic has two of the only four chiropractors in Northern Colorado who are certified in this technique. It uses a variety of positions, exercises, and adjustments to achieve ideal spine posture, which relieves tension on the muscles around the spine, eliminates pressure on the spine, and gives you a pain-free back once more.
  • Massage Therapy--Eases tension in muscles, to help relieve pain and strengthen the placement of vertebrae after adjustments
  • Massage Cupping--Brings healing by improving circulation to the entire spine area. An ancient healing method from Asia, cupping has gained popularity in the West as a healing treatment, after several athletes were seen with "cupping marks" at the most recent Olympic games.

The most amazing part about this office is that Dr. Dave and Dr. Mike really take the time to know what was happening in my body. They recommend much needed supplements that helped in me get my life back. I could not function before I started coming here and will always be grateful for their knowledge and expertise in their field. THANK YOU GATEWAY.

  • "Our Infant, Merrick, was placed with ear infection, congestion, and cough. Antibiotics were not helping and made things worse. He began vomiting. We were all exhausted & frustrated. We couldn't find anything that worked! We brought him to Gateway Chiropractic in Loveland. With steady treatments his ear infection and other symptoms went away. He is healthy and now growing without ear infection complications. This was a blessing for our baby and our family! We are so grateful!"
    C. Muth - Loveland, CO
  • "After a thorough and thoughtful review of the x-rays of my back and hips, Dr. Hughes adjusted me from my head to my knees. Yep, my knees! I was able to kneel down on the floor with my kids for the first time in years with no stiffness or achy knees. During the adjustment I felt unhurried and relaxed. I left with more range of motion in my neck, shoulders... & knees. Thank you! I recommend Dr. Hughes as a qualified and caring chiropractor!"

  • "The staff is amazing. The practitioners were more than happy to try and treat my severe neck pain and limited range of motion. I could hardly move my head and upper back 2 weeks ago. After a series of x-rays to I.D. the problem, some other quantitative testing, both chiropractors were able to treat my PROBLEM in addition to diminishing my SYMPTOMS. After 2 weeks, I have full range, hardly any pain, slept better and more energy. I would HIGHLY recommend beginning ANY un-wellness at this clinic prior to MD approach to medication.

  • "I have severe arthritis. The pain getting worse & I thought I might need to have a hip replacement. Even after the first adjustment my hip felt better and I could finally sleep all night without waking in pain. Now I have almost no pain most nights and I am walking without limping. I am now doing yoga and Zumba, two activities I ahd stayed away from because my hip pain just wouldn't allow it! I had never gone to a Chiropractor before, now I don't think I will ever stop!"
