Personal Injury Pain Cured by Vida Chiro

Personal Injury Pain Cured by Vida Chiro

Vida Chiropractic Newark, NJ Personal Injury Pain Cured

A very recent Vida Chiropractic Google Review (from our dear friend and patient, Saraii) is simply too good not to pass along to you here on our blog. It is stories like this that drives the professional gratification that our entire staff enjoys on a daily basis. Saraii's personal injury accident rendered her unable to walk, stand, or sit without excruciating pain. Her gratitude and satisfaction with her personal injury chiropractic treatment (specifically from Dr. Diana) here at Newark's Vida Chiropractic is the number one priority, but with that said, her appreciation (by name) for the compassion and skills of multiple Vida Chiropractic employees is simply heartwarming. Thank you, Saraii! And thanks also to our dear and critically valued staff specifically celebrated by Saraii: Dr. Diana, Receptionist Diana and Filipa, and Chiropractic Technician Janete. We couldn't do it without you!, Now, on with Saraii's story.

Let me just start by saying that I have suffer from back problems for over a decade now. This time around it wasn't my usual back pain, I injured myself by jumping full force into a 3ft deep pool while under the influence of alcohol. I had excruciating pain, I couldn't walk, stand or sit. I was in need of intense care and treatment. However, this Doctors office wasn't in my insurance Network so I paid cash only because I felt comfortable with Dr. Pereira professional advice and treatment plan. Dr. Diana is also an excellent doctor, she’s been treating me for therapy every day I come in. I must say I've been to two different Chiropractors for PT in the past and they have all been good but not as GREAT. I'm so satisfied with my results thus far and feeling stronger every day I come.

At Vida Chiropractor not only did I find great PT but a warm welcoming crew. The front desk girls are extremely friendly and professional. Receptionist Diana has been so neat and organized with all the documents and letters to provide my employer with and insurance. Janete is super sweet, she's the young lady who sets me up every-time I come in for decompression treatment. Filipa is another young lady at the office who has the brightest personality and she's just as wonderful with patients as everyone else in the office. I'm super happy and extremely satisfy.

FYI, I was walking after a good week of PT and by the 3rd week I was almost jogging. Thumbs up to this Team and the office

Vida Chiro (Newark, NJ) Can Solve Your Back Spasm Pain

Vida Chiro (Newark, NJ) Can Solve Your Back Spasm Pain

Darren Kincaid - Wednesday, October 17, 2018
Vida Chiropractic Newark, NJ treats back spasms

The odds are that at some time in your life you have suffered some form of spinal-area muscle spasm. We hope that it was simply a one-time condition. For many people unfortunately muscle spasms are not one-time events but are recurring and often times recurring with increasing frequency. Below we will review what you should immediately do when back spasms strike. We also offer the strategic actions to take to end them altogether.

What should I immediately do when my back spasms?

The first thing to do when you sense the onset of a back spasm is to stop what you are doing! Gently massage the area that is hurting. Massage can be a great treatment for short term relief. Then to the extent possible rest your back until the spasm subsides. With that said, it is also important to get moving again as soon as practically possible because excessive sedation can cause the muscles to stiffen back up and begin to spasm when you try to move. It is a delicate balancing act to get your back muscles back in tune.

What if my back spasms remain persistent?

If you make prudent behavioral adjustments but you still cannot get your back spasms to stop, we strongly advise you to seek professional care. Your local chiropractor (Vida Chiropractic for those of you living in Newark, NJ) will do an exam to try and determine the underlying cause of your muscle spasms and pain. Vida Chiropractic's doctors (meet Dr. Diana Arteta here) are patient focused and uniquely skilled in the art and science of diagnosing both the anatomical and physical lifestyle activities that may be causing your symptoms. 

Chiropractors specialize in the mechanical functions of the body. Our combined education and experience make chiropractors THE subject matter experts regarding how muscles, ligaments and bones work together to help your body bend and move naturally. When joints lock up or fixate they do not bend and move as you bend and move. This causes inflammation in the ligaments, tendons, muscles and nerves surrounding that joint. We treat joint disorders using multiple therapy options that include (but are not limited to) electrical muscle stimulation therapy and spinal decompression therapy.

We can usually put your back spasm and back pain to rest in relative short order. We achieve this thorough a physical examination along with an in-depth study of your individual case history. Our patients are often surprised when they find out what is actually causing their symptoms whether it be structural issues or just harmful routines or activities that they were not aware were causing damage.

Be honest with yourself. If you suffer persistent back pain, then by definition you are missing something. It is highly likely that you will continue to suffer until treated and educated by chiropractic professional. Every day is precious. The sooner that professional enters your life, the better. The professional team at Vida Chiropractic in Newark stands ready to help. Give us a call.
