After a car accident: chiropractic pain relief is possible
Even low speed car accidents can lead to pain that lingers for days, weeks, or even months. If you’ve been in a car accident, you probably know about the back pain and neck pain which can follow. A skilled car accident chiropractor can help you recover faster, and alleviate pain.
Chiropractic care for car accidents eases pain
When you’re in a car accident, the forces involved can not only knock you around inside the vehicle, but knock your joints out of alignment all over your body. From back to knee to jaw to neck, everywhere bones are held in place by muscle or other soft tissue, you can experience a traumatic misalignment leading to lingering pain.
A whiplash injury is caused when a rear impact “whips” the top of your spine backwards and forwards. Often adrenaline kicks in and the person hurt in the car accident doesn’t even feel that anything is wrong. But bones have shifted, and muscle has been strained. Once the injured person has had a chance to rest, those aches and pains will arrive with a terrible vengeance!
Chiropractic treatment for car accident injuries vs medication only.
Your doctor will listen carefully to your description of pain. Where it is, what type of pain it is, and how severe. However, inevitably, your doctor’s response will be to write a prescription for some sort of medication which simply masks the pain. There’s no real treatment going on.
A car accident chiropractor, on the other hand, will not only listen to your symptoms, but help your body begin to heal and recover through treatment. Chiropractic adjustments can treat the injury by relieving pressure on nerve and muscle while also bringing alignment back to the sensitive spine. Your recovery may include additional, complementary therapies such as exercise, stretching, dietary adjustments or supplements, and the use of specialized equipment.
The goal of your chiropractor is not to cover up symptoms, but to treat the underlying injury and to help your body do what it does best – healing. Many people who have been injured in an automobile accident find that regular chiropractic treatments lead to a swifter recovery.
