Auto Accidents

Healing after an Accident

If you’ve been involved in an Auto Accident, you may be experiencing symptoms that include neck pain, back pain, and headaches. These are very common and can present after even the most mild of impacts. Chiropractic is a great option when pursuing care to restore your function and overcome pain.

Accidents happen, but don’t carry the pain with you for years to come. See a Cross-Up Chiropractor for effective treatment to restore function and alleviate pain. Our hands on approach will allow you to give direct and instant feedback during treatment, so that we can gauge progress and fight the problem at it’s source.

Why physical care is important

The symptoms of pain and stiffness may not be felt for weeks and even months after the injury. Our hands on approach will allow you to give direct and instant feedback during treatment, so that we can gauge progress and fight the problem at it’s source. At Cross-Up Chiropractic, we believe in taking a cooperative approach with your general physicians to appropriately diagnose and effectively treat your pain for optimal recovery.

Insurance Claims

Once you receive all pertinent information from the insurance company, we can communicate with the claims adjuster to send clinical notes and billings for appropriate reimbursement.

Dr. Jack P Rieke

Chiropractor for a car accident injury Dr. Jack P Rieke

Chiropractor, Active Release + Rehab Specialist

Dr. Rieke is always looking to build on the tools and resources he can use to provide the best care for every patient. He was inspired by Chiropractic at a young age when his mother suffered from severe and chronic pain. After seeing about 13 specialists and undergoing countless failed procedures, his mother finally experienced effective and lasting relief by visiting a Chiropractor. After becoming a patient himself, he recognized the immense impact this practice makes on the lives of many and knew right away that he wanted to pursue this career of service to others.

Car accident chiropractor Dr. Peyton Habenicht

Chiropractor, Acupuncturist, NET, FMT, Webster Certified

At just 14 years old, Dr. Habenicht developed a passion for Chiropractic Medicine and decided this field was her future. As a committed soccer player, Dr. Habenicht was always searching for real health solutions instead of medication for her injuries. In high school, she sought out Chiropractic Care for a severe ankle sprain. As a result she experienced full resolution of ankle pain and weakness, and due to the comprehensive nature of the practice she also had relief of hip pain and a reduction of GERD symptoms and debilitating migraines.

Our Techniques

We use several techniques at Cross-up Chiro, depending on our patient’s needs. One or more techniques may be used to provide the best results for you.

Active Release TECHNIQUE (ART)

We are full body certified to treat the spine, upper & lower extremity with this technique. It is the most targeted soft tissue technique available and it restores function, mechanics, and nutrition to muscles and ligaments, while freeing up tension around nerves. 

Sports & Fire Cupping 

This tool comes from ancient chinese and mayan practice. The vacuum created in the cup creates suction against the skin to open the underlying tissues and facilitate circulation. 

Fascial Flossing

This is the use of a thick resistance band around joints and soft tissues of the upper and lower body. The band grabs hold of the skin and underlying connective tissue, and then movement is used to floss and release the muscles, nerves, and vessels below. 

BOdy Tempering

This is the use of a weighted roller on larger muscles – mainly of the lower body. This is excellent for working tension out of the hamstrings, quadriceps, and gluteals, while improving the reliance of those muscles. Temper means to prepare the muscle for heavier loads. 

Muscle Gliding

A gua sha tool with a beveled edge is used to glide along the muscles to promote fluid exchange and break up contracted tissues. This is great for accessing deeper tension in areas with more layers of muscle.

Spinal Stability training

In cases where spinal pain in unaffected by soft tissue release, there is a clear case for spinal instability that leads to shearing of the vertebra. This causes reflexive spasms in the surrounding musculature. Stability training off loads stress from the spine onto the girdle of support musculature. 

Strength & Conditioning

These two components must always cooperate in a healthy system. One can only thrive with the other simultaneously. We use protocols proven to improve muscle physiology and to help you achieve long term treatment relief without relapse.   

Proprioceptive (Balance & Coordination) Training

Proprioception is a sensory feedback system in the body that is continuously sending signals to the muscles about where they are in space. This type of training is essential in injury prevention because it teaches the muscles to respond to unexpected forces. This system is the foundation of all training.

Principles of the following:

Donnie Thompson (World Record Powerlifter), Kelly Starrett (PT, Crossfit Trainer, Mobility Coach), National Academy of Sport Medicine, Ben Patrick (Knees Over Toes Guy/Athletic Training Group Founder), Dr. Stuart McGill PhD (Backfit Pro Inc), Mark Bell (Super Training Gym/Powerproject Host), Stan Efferding (Vertical Diet & Training), Thomas Myers (Fascial Trains)

“Our focus is on finding and fixing the underlying problem – not just masking it.”
