From chiropractic services to physical therapy, we strive to make your treatment plan individualized to meet your specific needs. Some of the ways we can help treat auto accident injuries include:


Chiropractic Care

Injuries caused by auto accidents require immediate attention, and our chiropractic team wants to help reduce your pain and help heal any injuries that may be affecting your day-to-day life. Some of the chiropractic services we provide include:

    • Direct thrust techniques, also known as spinal manipulation, can help realign your neck and spine to alleviate symptoms of neck and back pain.
    • Spinal mobilization to help realign the spine gently for more severe injuries affecting the neck and back.
    • Range of motion therapies for individual joints that help reduce stiffness or tension and improves overall mobility.
    • Massage for sources of tension to help release stiffness in the area.
    • Education and exercises to be completed at home for further relief and rehabilitation.


Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is often used for long-term treatment of injuries and utilizes different techniques to heal affected areas through:

    • Manipulation techniques involve alignment and mobilization exercises to release pressure or pain and increase mobility and range of motion.
    • Exercises and stretches are used to help clients regain strength which can promote and speed up the healing process. These exercises are educational as well and can be used at home for further relief and treatment as directed by the PT.
    • Some treatment options may include electrical stimulation to target specific muscles for reaction and contraction.
    • Traction therapies are helpful for spinal alignment and can help heal herniated discs associated with accident injury.
    • Massaging of the muscles can help increase blood flow and circulation to help promote healing.
    • Our physical therapists also offer hot and cold therapy, ultrasound therapy, and laser therapy depending on the needs of each client and the severity of injuries and pain.


Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is a great tool for tension and stress release within the muscles, especially around the neck and lower back region. When you are involved in a car accident in Palm Beach Gardens, there may be some damage to the joints and muscles which can cause profound pain and discomfort. With our massage therapy techniques, we can help to ease that pain and tension by working through the knots in the muscle tissue gently. Massage therapy can:

    • Promote blood flow and circulation
    • Ease stress that may have been caused by the accident
    • Promote faster healing of the muscles and joints

Automobile Accident

    • Decreased Degeneration of Joints
    • Improved Blood Circulation


Motorcycle Accident

Almost 87% of people involved in motorcycle accidents in Florida suffer from some form of injury, whether it be incapacitating or relatively minor. Because riders are completely exposed, injuries vary in severity and in pain. Hospitalization may be required for some of the worst injuries, but rehabilitation after surgeries and healed broken bones can be critical for a full recovery, especially for riders wanting to get back on their bike as soon as possible. Here in Palm Beach Gardens, a combination of services provided by our chiropractors, physical therapists, and massage therapists can:

    • Help to realign the hip/pelvic region through manipulative therapy and exercises.
    • Treat whiplash-related injuries.
    • Realign the neck and spine.
    • Treat back-related injuries such as slipped discs or healed fractures.

Semi-Truck Accident

Injuries caused by semi-truck accidents are serious, especially for passengers of smaller cars, motorcycles, bikes, or pedestrians who have been hit. Chiropractic care, physical therapy, and massage therapy are some of the best forms of rehabilitative care for people who have sustained injuries, and these forms of treatment can help for long-term treatment and pain management.

    • Basis Medical can help improve mobility, range of motion, and flexibility in people who are healing from broken bones, surgeries, and other severe injuries related to semi-truck accidents.
    • A combination of chiropractic care and physical therapy is essential in the treatment of neck and back injuries, especially those related to whiplash. Chiropractic manipulation can help realign the neck and spine and physical therapy is often used to help strengthen and mobilize the afflicted areas which leads to a better prognosis for a full recovery.
    • Massage therapies can help to increase blood flow and circulation to the afflicted areas which promote healing and can speed up the healing process as well.
