Motor Vehicle Crash Rehabilitation: Managing Pain and Finding the Mechanism of Injury
Motor vehicle crashes can result in injuries that require specialized rehabilitation to manage pain and promote recovery. Understanding the mechanism of your injury is crucial in developing an effective treatment plan. Our treatment aims to guide you through the process of motor vehicle crash rehabilitation, pain management, and finding the underlying cause of your injury.
Consultation with Our Primary Care Spine Physician:
Start your rehabilitation journey by consulting with a primary care spine physician (PCSP) or spinal injury expert. We will conduct a comprehensive evaluation, considering your medical history and performing a physical examination. Make sure to provide detailed information about the crash or injury, the pain you're experiencing, and any additional symptoms.
Based on your examination, your PCSP may order diagnostic tests such as X-rays, CT scans, MRI scans, or other imaging studies. These tests can help identify structural damage, fractures, soft tissue injuries, or other crash-related conditions.
Following the diagnostic tests, your PCSP may refer you to a specialist who can further evaluate and treat your specific injuries. The type of specialist will depend on the nature of your injury. For example, orthopedic surgeons can address orthopedic injuries, while neurologists can assess neurological symptoms.
Rehabilitation specialists play a vital role in motor vehicle crash rehabilitation. We offer physical rehabilitation for restoring function, managing pain, and enhancing your quality of life. TWe will design a personalized treatment plan that may include physical therapy, occupational therapy, pain management techniques, and other interventions.
Pain Management Specialist:
If your pain persists or is severe, a pain management specialist can provide specialized care. These specialists have extensive experience in managing chronic pain and can offer various treatments such as medications, injections, nerve blocks, physical modalities, and behavioral interventions.
Throughout your rehabilitation process, a collaborative approach among healthcare professionals is essential. Specialists will work together to assess your progress, adjust treatment plans as needed, and provide comprehensive care. This multidisciplinary approach ensures that all aspects of your injury and pain are addressed effectively.

Pain neuroscience: we check the different pain fibers going to the area of pain. Sometimes the body wants hot, cold, vibration, compression, KT tape, or another stimulation.
Movement Neurology: we determine if all your joints are moving fully in all directions. If they are not we determine if it is a muscle, nerve or receptor issue and give you ways to make changes. We walk you through how to move all your joints in all normal movement patterns.
Sports Vision Training: your body will make posture changes if you have poor vision function in one or both eyes. If you have a weaker left eye you may be changing your head to use the right eye more. You may have 20/20 vision when you are standing still and looking at a non-moving target, but vision get worse when you are moving or the target is changing positions.
Vestibular rehabilitation: this is a system found in your ears that control balance and vision when you are moving either your head or body. If this system is not working you will experience vertigo/dizziness, motion sickness, or may just have lower energy because it strains your visual system which uses much of your body’s fuel.
Respiratory rehabilitation and training: if you are not having proper inhalation or exhalation or your diaphragm muscle is too tight, your brain is probably not getting enough oxygen or an improper balance of oxygen/carbon dioxide. This can lead to fatigue, muscle tightness and improper brain function. We assess for hyperventilation and arrhythmia breathing patterns. If you have dysfunctions we will show you how to breath better for better movement or pain relief.
Modern strength and mobility training: we offer strengthening programs but ours are unique for brain function. It is strange but we may only us resistant training for one side of the body for a few weeks to improve pain on the opposite side of the body. Our goal is for you to have full mobility in your neck, back, shoulders, elbow, wrists, hips, knees and feet with no pain.
Our typical patients include those who are suffering from:
By identifying and training underperforming parts of the brain, we can achieve almost immediate gains in performance, including:
Your body only performs as well as your brain lets it. If your brain is underperforming, your body underperforms too. So, it makes sense that your brain should be at the heart of everything you do to improve your movements.Schedule an Appointment

I have been to many different chiros and PTs but Proactive Healthcare is so much different. They don’t just lay me down and push on my back and then put me on heat and stim. The clinic is full of all sorts of rehab devices. I work on my vision, balance, strength, and breathing. If something new hurts some day they have lots of therapies for the symptoms such as cupping, acupuncture, and vibration. I was skeptical about how vision drills could help my pain, but they really do. If you have tried different places and only get temporary relief, try Proactive Healthcare and I don’t think you will be disappointed.
Having suffered from chronic pain for over 6 years. I had trouble walking up stairs and have not been able to run of a mile without severe knee pain afterwards. After a few treatments with Dr. Burdash I no longer have a limp and can now run 2 miles without pain for the first time in over 6 years. Discomfort went from an average of 6/10 to 1/10 and I plan on signing up for a 5k run next summer.
I had tried seeing an orthopedic, primary care doctor and multiple physical therapists over the last few years for my shoulder pain. Dr. Burdash has gotten my pain to go away after a couple of visits with a completely different approach. He showed me some unique ways to move my shoulder and afterwards it doesn’t hurt with all movements. The exercises are easy to do at home and work for a few minutes a day to keep the pain away.
I had terrible balance issues and consistently have to look at the ground when I walk and use the handrails when using steps. Dr. Burdash has shown me specific drills to work on my vestibular system in my brain and now I feel far more stable. People are now commenting that my posture is much better, and I am standing and walking more upright.
I came into Proactive with daily headaches and very tight restricted neck with pain. Dr. Burdash took a different approach compared to all the other places I went. We worked on visual exercises and I could immediately move me neck better. It took a week but afterwards I do not get any headaches anymore. It is great to not wake-up with headaches anymore.
I been going to PHC for about 2 years and Nate is great! Best Chiro
