Medical Pain Management – Mid Level

ITC is a multidisciplinary diagnostic and treatment center for brain and spine injuries after car accidents.

Our medical doctor and nurse practitioner are providing examination, medication, diagnostic referrals, medical pain management. Our medical team is working alongside with our chiropractors, and therapists managing our injured patients under one roof. Our injury expert physicians and our therapy team have extensive experience in diagnosis, treatment, and documentation of the injuries.

Chiropractic Pain Management

Our chiropractors have extensive experience and training in diagnosing and treating spine and joint injuries. Spinal manipulation and ancillary therapies are provided to treat headaches, neck pain, mid back pain, lower back pain, hip pains, shoulder pain, knee pain, etc.. We treat children as young as 2 years old at our facility.

Chiropractic Neurology

It is different from medical neurology. A chiropractic neurologist primarily focuses on the functional aspects of brain and spine contributions.

Car accidents cause microscopic injuries to brain and spine. These injuries cause malfunctions in thought process, focusing, memory, balance, movements, physical strength with pains all over. In severe cases patients report numbness and tingling in their arms and legs.

Chiropractic neurologist does not use medications to manage these injuries.
Instead utilizes the many receptors throughout the body including the spine and joints to restore normal functions, wellness and to reduce and eliminate pain.

Radiology and X-Rays

We take x-rays on site.

Specialized x-ray studies (cervical stress views) are done to look for ligament injuries and structural injuries.

All x-rays are read by our radiologists.

TBI/ Concussion diagnosis- EEG/ERP

FDA cleared EEG/ERP is used by medical and chiropractic neurologists to diagnose mild traumatic brain injuries and post concussion syndromes. 

ITC is the only clinic or hospital in Kansas City that uses EEG/ERP for the diagnosis of mTBI.

Car accidents over 10 mph are known to cause mTBI routinely.

Typically, mTBI symptoms are headaches,  migraines, dizziness, sensitivity to light and sound, sleep disturbances, memory problems, learning difficulties, speech problems, taste or smell problems, spots in your vision, ringing in ears, and many more

TBI/ Concussion Treatment

The most challenging injuries from car accidents are the microscopic injuries to the brain known Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries TBI aka concussions. TBI diagnosis and treatment require specialized protocols. TBI treatments must scientifically based for the given diagnosis.

At last TBI documentation must be thoroughly inclusive of all findings and treatments.

Injury Rehabilatation

Soft tissue rehabilitation following a car accident injury is to ensure the spine and body have the support, protection, and strength required to endure daily activities and stresses. There are various modalities used to address all aspects of required rehabilitation. This course of care typically takes 4-6 weeks of treatment.

Neuromuscular Re-education (NMR)

NMR treatment addresses hidden injuries to the brain and spine sustained after a car accident.

70% of crashes cause brain and spine injuries from low speed car accidents. These injuries are not typically seen on MRI or CT scans. But if you experience any dizziness, imbalance, vertigo, headache, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, chances are you have TBI and/or spine injury. Neuromuscular re-education techniques help patients regain normal, controlled movement patterns. Neuromuscular re-education consists of manual techniques (i.e.PNF-proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation), activities for balance and core control (i.e Bosu exercises and Therapeutic Ball exercises) and other therapeutic exercises that are designed to re-develop normal, controlled movement patterns. The goal of neuromuscular re-education activities is to re-train a body part to perform some task that the body part was previously able to do.

Disc Traction for disc bulge and herniation

Probably the most effective non-surgical treatment for bulging or herniated discs in the spine. A pain-free treatment with miraculous results achieved in a very short time.

Intervertebral Disc Flexion Distraction is a therapeutic technique used to treat people with a variety of spinal pain syndromes that have not responded to other treatment approaches.
This procedure is performed on a uniquely designed table and is based on a distractive force (supplied with the doctor’s hand) combined with table motion. Flexion distraction manipulation is a gentle, non-force adjusting procedure which works with the body’s natural design to aid it in healing properly. The goals of the flexion distraction adjustment include transfer of metabolites into the spinal disc, decreasing intradiscal pressures and decompressing inflamed/compressed spinal nerve roots, break-up adhesions/fibrosis/scar tissue, and stretch spinal muscles.

Neuromuscular Therapeutic Treatments

Car accidents cause microscopic tearing of the muscle’s ligament and tendons around the spine and joints.

Various neuro muscular therapies are used at ITC to regenerate and restore the injured tissues as quickly and safely as possible.
These therapies feel wonderful, highly relaxing and very therapeutic.

Car accidents cause substantial physical injuries, it takes a lot more than medication to repair these injuries.

Medical Pain Management – Interventional

Our medical and chiropractic physicians work closely with our team of pain doctors for injections. State of the art equipment, highly qualified specialists.

Therapeutic Exercise

Therapeutic exercises are vital in the repair and rehabilitation process of injured supportive tissues after a car crash.

Therapeutic exercise is the systematic performance or execution of planned physical movements or activities intended to enable the patient or client to remediate or prevent impairments of body functions and structures, enhance activities and participation, reduce risk, optimize overall health, and enhance fitness and well-being. Therapeutic exercise may include aerobic and endurance conditioning and reconditioning; agility training; body mechanics training; breathing exercises; coordination exercises; developmental activities training; muscle lengthening; movement pattern training; neuromotor development activities training; neuromuscular education or re-education; perceptual training; range of motion exercises and soft tissue stretching; relaxation exercises; and strength, power, and endurance exercises.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is an advanced complex procedure design to repair and regenerate the multi-layers of tissue such as muscles, ligaments, and tendons commonly associated with auto injuries.

ITC uses a myofascial release technique called Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) which is a process in which the clinician uses a set of hand held instruments to break down the scar tissue and fascial restrictions in soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, and nerves). Once the damaged areas are detected, the instruments are used to deliver a controlled microtrauma to the affected area. The purpose of the microtrauma is to stimulate a local inflammatory response, which initiates reabsorption of excessive scar tissue and facilitates a cascade of healing activities. Adhesions within the soft tissue that may have developed as a result of surgery, immobilization, trauma, or repetitive strain, are broken down, allowing the patient to regain function.

Manual Therapy

One of the goals after your car accident is to reduce/eliminate muscle spasms and trigger points if they exist using a variety of techniques.

Each muscle has potential trigger points which can become activated by trauma and muscle overuse. These trigger points can cause pain over the muscle affected or refer pain and thus be felt in another area of the body. Muscles with active trigger points are always weaker than normal muscles and unable to move through their full range of motion. Often because they are unable to perform their normal function, other muscles are recruited to perform the activity of the compromised muscle. These secondary muscles can go on to develop trigger points themselves if the original muscle is not treated.

Interferential Current Therapy

Interferential current therapy is an effective therapy option used by many clinics to relieve pain and accelerate the self-healing process, getting your body back to a healthy, pain free state.

The high frequency signals of an IFC penetrate through the skin into deeper lying muscle tissues. Electrodes are placed on your skin around the injured body part. The Interferential Current device then transmits electrical impulses in minute quantities through your skin. Underlying tissue and nerves are stimulated which begins the healing properties. These impulses are not painful in the least. In fact, patients describe the sensation as a minor prickle on their skin. Frequencies produced by the IFC have been proven to stimulate endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers. This can help to create a self-healing process without the need to for medications. This form of therapy is also extremely useful in reducing pain, inflammation, curing edema, and spasms.

  • Reduces or eliminates your pain safely.
  • Noticeable decrease in swelling and inflammation.
  • Restores lost movement and improves restricted movements and coordination.
  • Stimulates the natural hormones which can help your body heal faster.
  • Considered by many experts as a highly effective form of treatment for chronic pain.

Intersegmental Traction (IST)

IST tables can provide effective treatment for many back conditions such as muscle spasms, car accident injuries, whiplash, pinched nerves, sciatica, bulged discs, and herniated discs to name few.

Made for patients to lay on their back on it, a unique rolling movement gently stretches the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the spine and gives mobility to the joints. This helps for better alignment and improved circulation in the spinal joints for them to receive the nutrients they need. Misaligned bones in the spine can cause damage to the discs and surrounding tissues resulting in problems down the road. Intersegmental traction tables can also help with posture as it makes it easier for individuals to sit up straight as the muscles around the spine are more relaxed and tendons and ligaments lightly stretched.

  • Reduces or eliminates your pain safely.
  • Noticeable decrease in swelling and inflammation.
  • Restores lost movement and improves restricted movements and coordination.
  • Stimulates the natural hormones which can help your body heal faster.
  • Considered by many experts as a highly effective form of treatment for chronic pain.

Computerized Radiographic Mensuration Analysis (CRMA)

Car accidents cause whipping of the head and neck which results in injuries to the ligaments attached to the spine, ribs and joints.

Injuries to the ligaments of the spine cause slippage of the vertebrae. This slippage must be measured and is considered as permanent impairment. 

CRMA study does this analysis and documents the severity grade of the injuries and the impairment rating set by the AMA guidelines.
