Dr. Ian Fliss DC's Expert Contributions
Generally speaking, if you have pain that does not improve within 3-5 days, you should have it examined by a professional. As far as how to treat “a pulled muscle," it really depends on a few things: 1. How it was done 2. What are the symptoms? Does the pain travel? What kind of pain is it? 3. Is there any other history or outlying factors that could be affecting your situation? READ MORE
In order to understand how chiropractic can help you have to understand what happens during a whiplash injury. First the head and neck go in one direction and suddenly stop and then snaps in the other direction. This shaking can rip or tear ligament. It can shift or damage bone alignment. It can also negatively impact nerve impulses in the area. This trauma can cause all sorts of symptoms ranging from: concussion, head-aches, neck stiffness, sharp or shooting pains into the arms, numbness or tingling, and and even tinnitus. Chiropractic care can help to stabilize the neck by realigning the bones in the right position. This may help to balance irregular nerve impulses which may be creating the tinnitus. READ MORE

Electric stimulation is the use of electrodes to help with musculoskeletal pain. It does 2 things: it uses electric current to prevent the sensation of pain, this is done because the electric current uses the same sensation pathway that pain travels; it also helps to overload tense or spasmodic muscles, or re-stimulate weakened ones.
