Motor Vehicle Accident Recovery

When drivers and passengers are involved in car accidents that aren’t major collisions, they too often neglect their physical wellbeing.  Usually more worried about an insurance claim or being late for work, we don’t always stop to assess what damage may have been done to our bodies.  At Renew Chiropractic, Dr. Jason Jumper and staff know some passengers feel the effects of whiplash injuries immediately following an accident.  Others may walk away from the incident not feeling injured and only experience pain later, which is why a chiropractor should always be consulted.

The sudden and unnatural movement of a body during a car accident causes whiplash.  Symptoms are typically pain and stiffness in the neck, back, and shoulders, but can include headaches and dizziness.  After a car accident, a chiropractor may perform an adjustment to realign your spine. For pain in the extremities, various techniques can be used to repair damage to hard and soft tissue.  After initial treatment, you may be assigned exercises to continue at home to help you heal faster.  

If you have been involved in a car accident of any severity, always take the time to see a chiropractor.  Renew Chiropractic is happy to work with most car insurance providers.  To learn more, visit www.renew-chiropractic.com. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Jason Jumper, call 720-493-5885.

Why Choose Custom Foot Orthotics?
If you're constantly suffering from pain in the knees and lower back, your feet may be to blame. Imbalances in the foot can lead to pain in other areas of the body. You may be placing pressure on specific parts of the foot when you walk, and this can cause pressure on the feet, knees, and even back. Fortunately, you can typically fix his issue without surgery. Custom foot orthotics such as our Stabilizing Orthotics can help with foot alignment issues. Lakewood, CO, chiropractor Dr. Jason Jumper has over than 20 years of experience in the chiropractic field and specializes in many techniques and services, including custom foot orthotics.

Benefits of Custom Foot Orthotics
If you're looking for comfort and pain relief, your first choice may be to buy prepackaged shoe inserts at the shoe store. They may be helpful for short-term use, but they can't fix chronic conditions. That's why you should have custom foot orthotics created for your feet and your feet only. Unlike generic, over-the-counter orthotics, our Stabilizing Orthotics are individually designed for your unique postural problems to alleviate pressure on your joints and provide structural support for your entire body. Most orthotic companies only support one arch, while ours support the three interconnected arches of your foot.

Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

Have you ever felt an unexplained pinch in your lower back and/or hip that becomes irritated when you move from the sitting-to-standing position? If so, then you may be experiencing sacroiliac joint pain. The sacroiliac (SI) joints are formed by the connection of the sacrum and the right and left iliac bones. The function of this joint is to transfer weight and forces due to movement of your upper body through the pelvis, to your legs and vice versa. When this joint becomes injured and/or moved out of place, Dr. Jason Jumper of Renew Chiropractic can fix the problem.  

The primary role of the sacroiliac joint is to provide stability for the pelvis and to bear the upper load of the body. It acts as a shock-absorbing structure and does not have much motion, but it can cause pain once it’s moved out of its groove. While it is not clear how the pain is caused, it can develop because of too much movement or too little movement. If you feel inflammation in this area, the longer you wait to find relief, the longer it will take to correct the problem.

Because everyone is different, the treatment plan varies for each individual. Fortunately, sacroiliac joint dysfunction can be treated without surgery. Dr. Jason Jumper may implement a treatment method called “The Pettibon System.” The Pettibon system uses a group of manipulative techniques performed both by hand and mechanical instruments and rehabilitation exercises.  

If you think you are suffering from pain in the sacroiliac joint, please give us a call to discuss your treatment options.

Electrical Stimulation Therapy

Relieving Pain Through Electrical Stimulation Therapy
Although chiropractors are known for "cracking backs," they do much more than that. Nowadays, there are so many new technologies, machines, and techniques that chiropractors can use to help relieve pain. One technique is electrical stimulation therapy. As the name implies, this therapy uses electrodes to stimulate the area of the body that is in pain. This therapy offers many benefits. Lakewood chiropractor Dr. Jason Jumper has nearly 20 years of experience in the chiropractic field and is skilled in various techniques, such as electrical stimulation therapy.

How Does Electrical Stimulation Therapy Work?
This therapy mimics muscle contractions, which helps muscles maintain strength and tone as the patient heals from his or her injury. This improves circulation and range of motion. Without electrical stimulation therapy, muscles tend to atrophy due to a lack of use.

What is Electrical Stimulation Therapy Good For?
  • Back pain
  • Sprains
  • Scoliosis
  • Sciatica
Types of Electrical Stimulation Therapy
  • Galvanic - Pulsed electrical current is placed on the painful tissues. It uses direct current to reduce swelling and distribute nutrients to the affected area.
  • Muscular - By reducing muscle spasms, muscles are strengthened. Electric impulses cause muscle contractions, which stimulate the skeletal muscle.
  • Transcutaneous - Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is ideal for alleviating chronic pain and healing wounds. The stimulation is typically done through a portable unit that the patient can use at home.

There’s no denying the power of bodywork, which is why chiropractic can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen. The emotional balance this treatment provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more substantial physical benefits.
