Many people don’t think about visiting a chiropractor after an auto accident. However, chiropractic care is the best solution for most people because it doesn’t involve drugs or surgery. If you’ve been involved in an auto accident, you might be surprised to learn that chiropractic care can provide relief from your pain. For instance, if you have back pain or neck pain after being involved in a car accident, this could mean you have a spinal or whiplash injury. A whiplash injury can happen from the force of a rear-impact accident that cause the abrupt movement of the cervical spin backward and forward, or whipped (hence the name of the condition). This will knock the spine out of its alignment and strain the neck muscles, which causes pain, soreness, and stiffness. The result of an auto accident injury is that the musculoskeletal system is knocked out of proper alignment because of the force of the accident. Chiropractic adjustments can not only relieve pressure on the muscles and nerves, but it also brings alignment back to the spine. Additional therapies, such as corrective exercise, can help bring back the body’s full range of motion.
When your neck and back are injured in an accident, the inflammation that occurs afterward is going to cause even more problems. It will slow the healing process because blood and nutrients won’t be able to make it to the areas they need to. Chiropractic will mobilize your spine and allow it to begin the healing process faster than normal, which will feel amazing as it’s happening and even better the next day.
Prompt chiropractic care will help support your body’s natural healing process and help you avoid a lifetime of chronic pain or other health problems. If you do not receive proper care, these types of injuries can have a serious, negative impact on your health. They can lead to months, or possibly even years, of chronic pain. Through a complete understanding of the complexities of auto accident injury cases, we take great pride in providing excellent chiropractic care to help alleviate pain. If you’re suffering from an auto accident injury–regardless of whether it was a “fender bender” or a major crash–don’t wait to deal with your pain. Call to schedule an appointment sooner, than later.
