Why get a Chiropractic Evaluation after a motor vehicle collision? A common result of car accidents is whiplash, which is an umbrella term for injuries caused by sudden flexion followed by extension of the neck. Whiplash also triggers sprains and strains. Chiropractic is a proven therapy for whiplash.
It is important to get checked by a chiropractor as soon as possible after a motor vehicle accident. There are two reasons for this: first, it is essential to identify all injuries before settling with insurance companies. Since the effects of whiplash are not always evident right away, a prompt chiropractic exam is crucial to avoid paying out-of-pocket for debilitating symptoms that may emerge later. Secondly, evidence shows that prompt care is more effective than delayed care for whiplash. In one study, 67% of patients experienced improvement in their symptoms if they received care for whiplash within three months of injury.
Did you know that neck and back injuries account for most of the injuries occurring at work? Industrial injuries result in injury to a worker, both physically and financially. Everyone gains when an injured worker is safely back on the job. It is important to receive proper care following an industrial injury, not only to stop the pain, but to rehabilitate the affected area. Without proper treatment and healing, it's more likely that an industrial injury will soon reoccur.
Whether you sustain an injury in a slip and fall, shoveling, lifting / moving items, one thing that some people tend to do is put off addressing it right away. Seeking medical attention from an experienced chiropractor, like Dr. DiPiazza, immediately after these types of injuries will not only lessen your chances of having complications from them down the road, but it will also increase your chances of living a healthier, pain-free life. Now is the time to focus on your health and your families' health. We are fully equipped to evaluate and properly prescribe the necessary treatment to improve overall function and structure. Health promotes happiness, and we are dedicated to helping you achieve that.
Dr. DiPiazza has the ability to take and develop x-rays in-house and read them accordingly. In certain cases, x-rays are sent out to be read by a radiologist for further evaluation. X-rays help to properly diagnose and treat a patient’s condition. Once the x-rays are developed, they are shown and reviewed with the patient to help he/she understand their condition and create a proper treatment plan.

Not all chiropractors adjust pregnant women. It is well known now in both the medical and chiropractic communities that chiropractic care is extremely effective for not only the pregnant mother, but also the baby she is carrying in the womb.
Not all chiropractors see infants and children. While most chiropractors focus merely on the adult population, we pride ourselves in complete family care. Chiropractic check-ups and adjustments should begin at birth and continue throughout life to ensure maximum health, vitality, and total wellness.
Once your health and wellness have been restored to your maximum potential, Wellness Chiropractic Care is all about maintaining the integrity of your nerve system and teaching you how to maintain total wellness throughout your entire life.
Physiotherapy, also known as Physical Therapy, is used to develop, maintain and restore maximum movement and functional ability throughout life. A certain set of modalities are used in physiotherapy which can help strengthen, relax, and heal muscles. They include: electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, traction, and ice and heat therapy.
Electrical stimulation involves low levels of electrical impulses delivered to the injured, painful tissues to reduce pain and speed healing. Patients often describe a pleasant, “tingling” sensation, or “electrical massage,” these impulses stimulate the body to release natural pain relievers, called endorphins. These endorphins reduce pain and inflammation, thereby promoting faster healing of the injured tissues. This therapy is often used to treat acute or chronic pain, as well as strains or sprains of the muscles, joints, and soft tissues of the spine and extremities.
Sometimes a patient is placed in a rehab program as part of his treatment plan to facilitate a speedy recovery. The treatment will be designed and supervised by Dr. DiPiazza. He will teach the patient specialized exercises and stretches to help strengthen and correct the problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of the patient’s home and improve the effectiveness of spinal correction.

I will be offering Raindrop Technique that is one of the safest, non-invasive techniques available for spinal health. It is also an invaluable tool to promote healing from within using topically applied essential oils. They are synergistically combined to kill viral and bacterial pathogens, reduce inflammation, support the immune system, ease respiratory discomfort, relax stressed muscles, curb digestive upset and relieve body and joint discomfort, as well as balance energy, lift the spirit, restore calm and increase the ability to concentrate. Raindrop in conjunction with Chiropractic Care is a wonderful combination for complete wellness.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Dr. DiPiazza offers a variety of specialized soft-tissue therapies proven in the athletic and non-athletic arena for athletes and non-athletes alike. Modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and interferential current are used to treat sports injuries. All of these modalities are painless and non-invasive.
Not all chiropractors offer nutrition and supplementation. We carry and create foundational nutritional supplementation programs for our patients who desire the next level of health. We understand that the nervous system is the master control system, however, without proper fuel, your body's healing potential is definitely decreased. Talk to one of our doctors to have your foundational nutrition analyzed. Also check out the variety of supplements offered by the Cambridge Clinic of Chiropractic.

An 'orthotic' is a device designed to restore your natural foot function. Many 'biomechanical' (walking) complaints such as heel pain, knee pain and lower back pain are caused by poor foot function. Orthotics re-align the foot and ankle bones to their neutral position, thereby restoring natural foot function. In turn this helps alleviate problems in other parts of the body. In addition, orthotics give a more even weight distribution, taking pressure of sore spots (e.g. the ball of the foot, corns in between toes, bunions etc) and they provide some shock absorption.
