Rehabilitation to Wellness
Being involved in an accident is never easy. The impact of an accident, whether big or small, can result in permanent damage if left unaddressed. Prevent those injuries from developing into something chronic by making an appointment and starting treatment today. These accidents may cause whiplash, muscle tightness, movement in the spine, which cause pain and aches. We work with your auto insurance so there are no out of pocket costs. Don't leave this up to chance, put your health in capable hands and allow us to work together to get your body back.
On the first visit, there will be paperwork, an exam, and treatment. In the exam, you will have the opportunity to sit with the doctor and go over the accident, where you are hurting, and she will answer any questions you may have. Being in an accident is stressful. Write down your questions and let us guide you through this process. Treatment is very simple the first day. The doctor will go through what treatment is best for you and walk you through how each treatment will benefit and heal your body. Treatment length will be determined on how your body heals.

Focused on Your
Recovery & Wellness
At the Accident Clinic of SWFL we believe that you deserve focused and specific care, no matter how big or small your accident was. Our goal is to get you moving and feeling like your self again. Every treatment is done by the doctor, not an assistant. Come and experience the difference!
Our doctor prefers to use a hands on approach. It is known as a diversified technique which enhances joint mobility and minimizes discomfort in the spine. In addition to the spine, Dr. Michelle also adjusts the other joints in your body, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and feet. Be sure to let her know your aches and pains. If hands on approach isn't for you, we have gentler adjustments available such as the activator technique or drop tables. At our clinic, you will see the the doctor every visit! Don't like your neck adjusted, no problem!
During myofascial release, the doctor will apply light pressure to the affected area with her hands. This will cause a natural blood flow to the area making the muscles feel relaxed, and improve elasticity. The doctor may also use tools to help; they are know as instrument assisted soft-tissue mobilization (IASTM), or Graston. The tools help scrape the scar tissue that forms in areas of the body that cause discomfort.
Physiotherapy is a form of physical therapy. Physiotherapy is a focused type of rehabilitation that helps the body heal naturally after an injury. At the Accident Clinic of SWFL we use a medical grade electrical stimulation to stimulate the muscles and reduce pain and inflammation. Dr. Michelle will also work one on one with you and teach you different stretches and exercises.
Our tables are known as "drop" tables. These tables have pieces that elevate the area that is affected. The doctor will apply a quick thrust to the area which will cause the table to drop. This is known to provide a lighter type of adjustment which is just as effective as the other types of adjustments. Our tables also have flexion distraction. Flexion distraction tables cause the bottom piece of the table to move up and down automatically. This causes the spaces in you back to open up allowing more movement in the spine.
