Westlake Chiropractic Clinic Treats Accident Injury Patients with Physical Therapy and Massage

Our Westlake chiropractic clinic offers a blend of treatments to get the very best results for your accident injury or workers compensation related injury. Our treatments are 100% non-invasive, drug free and proven to be safe. We often start with chiropractic spinal adjustments from the chiropractor, which can help re-align any spine or neck vertebrae that may have shifted out of their proper areas during an accident or injury. In addition to traditional chiropractic adjustments, we offer spinal decompression therapy, passive physical therapy, rehabilitative and corrective exercises, therapeutic massages, nutrition counseling, vibration therapy, and kinesio taping.

Physical therapy is often a common component of the treatment plans for our accident and injury patients. Passive physical therapy is aimed at helping patients to recover mobility and functionality. Our physical therapy methods can include electrical stimulation, mobilizing Westlake physical therapy combines with massage and chiropractic caretraction, ultrasound, deep heat diathermy, and chi-gong.

Massage is another aspect of our treatment process for conditions like back pain. Therapeutic massage can help to relax strained muscles and increase blood flow to the muscles to improve healing. Additionally, massage can also help to reduce inflammation and thus allow muscles to function as normally as possible again. When the pain involves symptoms like headaches, treatment may be focused on the neck and upper back area since headaches are often the result of a neck vertebrae that is misaligned or a pinched nerve. At Advanced Spinal Rehab and Wellness Center, we offer various types of massage, including deep tissue, sports, stones, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, and lymph drainage massages.

Dr. Darr will incorporate chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, massage, and other natural healing methods to help patients find pain relief and achieve the optimum health. Our focus is on adding years to your life and life to your years with natural, non-invasive healing methods. In addition to our local Westlake clients, we also serve patients from the Bay Village, Rocky River, North Olmsted and Fairview Park communities.

    Dr. Darr

    One of the nuances with chiropractors is listening to their stories of why they became a chiropractor. Mine was life-changing that struck me like a bolt of lightning that aroused me from a deep sleep. But let's be very clear about one thing, it is NOT because my granddad, dad, two uncles, and older brother were all chiropractors. You see, when I was a junior in high school I learned in an advanced physiology class that the nervous system is the master system of the body.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
