Personal Injury Chiropractor in Houston, TX: It is very important that you seek care from our Houston chiropractors immediately after an accident. The effects of such accidents can worsen or can lead to long-term pain if they are not addressed right away. The body also may not be able to feel the full extent of some injuries until hours, days, or weeks later due to adrenaline and other stressors masking the pain. At MVMT Chiropractic, the doctors offer chiropractic care and other natural treatment options to aid in a patient’s recovery.

The most common personal injuries that result from accidents include the following:
- Back, neck, knee and shoulder pain

Treatments for Personal Injuries at our Houston Chiropractic Center
Chiropractic Care: Regular chiropractic adjustments provide effective pain relief for a variety of conditions. They provide patients with a non-surgical alternative to healing pain and injury. Various chiropractic adjustment techniques are used at the practice in order to remove pressure from spinal nerves caused by vertebrae misalignment.
Spinal Decompression: Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is performed to patients at our Houston clinic using two Accu-SPINA® tables. The spine will be stretched and repositioned in order to relieve the pressure within your spinal discs. The manipulation and stretching of your spinal joints also works to free trapped nerves, reduce pain, restore your body’s range of motion and realign your spinal column.
Dry Needling: Dry needling is a skilled intervention that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments.
Soft Tissue/Myofascial Release: Myofascial Release is a safe and effective hands-on technique offered at MVMT Chiropractic that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a gentle pressure applied slowly will allow fascia to elongate.
Acupuncture: During an acupuncture session, our doctors insert sterilized needles just under the skin or deeper in order to reach muscle tissue. These needles stimulate sensory nerves under the skin and the body’s muscles. This stimulation allows the body to produce natural pain-relieving endorphins, which are the substances most responsible for the beneficial effects of acupuncture.
Shockwave Therapy: High energy shockwaves penetrate the patient’s skin and are sent to the tissue without causing any damage. The shockwaves stimulate the affected areas and help enhance the body’s ability to heal itself. Each shockwave treatment works by increasing the metabolic activity in the pain area. It stimulates the reabsorption of irritative calcium deposits in tendons as well as stimulates the body’s natural healing process. In turn, this helps to reduce pain.
