Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries

It is critical that chiropractic care is sought immediately after an automobile accident! Allowing the effects of whiplash to go untreated can induce long-term pain. The seriousness of the physical effects of an accident is not always known or felt immediately following. It can take days, weeks or even months for major symptoms to show up, which is why chiropractic care is essential to maintaining the health of a spine that has been through a trauma.

Any body part that is jarred or thrown forward unexpectedly and beyond normal limits can sustain stretched ligaments and even tears. Those supporting the head and neck are especially vulnerable to this kind of tearing during a collision. Since chiropractors specialize in the care of bones, muscles, nerves and connective tissue, they are crucial to visit after an accident. All those major parts of the body are important to keep in optimal health and correct alignment so they can function properly and all body systems can operate seamlessly.

Continuing Care After Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries: The Role of Chiropractic in Recovery and Rehabilitation

An automobile accident can take a toll on your body, and you need comprehensive treatments to achieve full recovery. Here’s how our chiropractors can help you with motor vehicle accident injuries:

Progressive Healing and Pain Management

If you’ve suffered whiplash or any other injury, our chiropractors will give you initial treatment but won’t stop after that and focus on progressive healing. To do this, they use various techniques so you can manage your pain and your tissues can heal naturally. They might use manual adjustments and manipulations to ensure your spine has proper alignment so your nervous system can function optimally and your body heals effectively.

Restoring Range of Motion

One of the consequences of motor vehicle accident injuries is that you might lose some flexibility and range of motion, especially in your neck and back. Our chiropractors use targeted exercises and adjustments to ensure you get your range of motion back and return to your daily activities as soon as possible without any discomfort.

Preventing Chronic Conditions

If you don’t give your body proper care, it could lead to chronic pain conditions, which many have suffered after motor vehicle accident injuries. But when you continue with chiropractic care, our experts help mitigate this risk by handling misalignments and injuries before they become chronic.
