Dr. Trent Artichoker and the team at Denver Chiropractic are pleased to announce the addition of in-house MRI services to the robust list of services offered at our office.

Using state-of-the-art imaging technology, our team is now more equipped than ever to help identify injuries. When you visit our office for a scan, rest assured that we’ll make the experience as easy and comfortable for you as possible. We’re excited to be able to bring this resource to our chiropractic patients seeking answers on how to recover following an accident.


Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a tool that is used at hospitals and clinics around the world to create detailed cross-sectional images of organs and body tissues.

This technology uses a magnetic field and radio waves to allow medical professionals to get a glimpse “inside the body” without using invasive means. During a scan, we are able to see details of the brain, spinal cord, bones, joints and internal organs.


MRIs are beneficial following auto accidents for several reasons. First, imaging can help us to rule out any serious injuries or fractures that may go undetected in the immediate aftermath of an accident.

Symptoms related to spinal injuries, neck trauma and brain trauma can sometimes be delayed following an accident. In fact, MRIs are known for being especially beneficial for detecting the early signs of head injuries. MRIs can also be helpful for identifying common post-accident injuries like herniated discs, bulging discs, protruding discs and extruding discs.

Identifying injuries immediately after an accident helps us to create tailored, focused treatment plans for faster, more complete healing. You can also use your scan results to manage suspected injuries with help from other specialists. MRIs can also help patients who have been in car accidents to properly report injuries to insurance companies. If you are in a position where you’re pursuing compensation following a car accident, we can use the results of your imaging scan to properly report your injury to the insurance company.


If you're experiencing pain, suffering or loss of mobility following an accident, you can book an appointment with Dr. Trent Artichoker here at Denver Chiropractic.

In addition, imaging may be a good option for proactive care if you’ve recently been in an accident because we may be able to help you identify signs of bulging or trauma before the symptoms progress. While many people wave off help following a car accident because they don’t “feel” injured, symptoms like headaches, dizziness, neck pain, back pain, stiffness and reduced range of motion can show up in the days and weeks following an accident.

Our friendly team will be more than happy to explain the process of having imaging done at our office to you. We can also answer any questions you have about the process to put your mind at ease. For more information about imaging services following a car accident, contact Denver Chiropractic to book an appointment today!

Advantages of using Cold Lasers
Using laser light as a treatment for chronic pain carries many advantages. Besides accelerating cellular reproduction and growth in order to speed up healing time, they also accelerate collagen synthesis in damaged tissue for faster recovery. Conversely, the laser light also reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from cuts, scratches, burns or post surgery scarring.

Customary Treatment Frequency
Each condition will respond slightly different to cold laser therapy, but in general it is recommended that a person complete anywhere between 6-30 treatments. This depends on many factors, such as size of the area, amount of injury present, and type of condition.

Super Pulsed Laser (905nm) produces a high power level of impulse light at a billionth of a second. It is the high power during each pulse that drives the photons, or light energy, to the target tissue up to 10—13 cm (4—5 inches) deep.

The TerraQuant’s high peak power of up to 25,000mW creates a higher photon density, delivering the highest concentration of photons for healing and providing the deepest tissue penetration. Super pulsed laser strongly influences pain reduction, the improvement of microcirculation and increases cell metabolism in the form of ATP production.

 

Pulsed Broadband Infrared Emitting Diodes (875nm) penetrate shallower tissue depths than the laser but provide an overall broader spectrum, when compared to laser radiation, by gently heating the surface tissue layer.

Pulsed Red Light (660nm) penetrates shallower tissue depth and has beneficial anti-inflammatory effects.

Static Magnetic Field keeps ionized molecules of tissue in a dissociated stage, enhancing the energy potential at the molecular and cellular levels.
