A car crash can lead to some of the worst pain. The violent force of the accident damages muscles, tendons, and soft tissue.
Patients who were in an auto accident may rely on medication to get through their days. They may start thinking about surgery for their neck or back. Here at Spine and Injury Medical Center, we believe in holistic treatments like chiropractic care to treat car accident injuries.
What Are Auto Accident Injuries?
Auto accident injuries are any sustained pain one experiences after a crash. This may include broken bones, torn muscles, damaged ligaments, and strained soft tissue. A crash can injure any part of the body, but the most-affected areas are the shoulders, neck, and back.
In many accidents, whiplash becomes a possibility. If you stopped suddenly or were slammed into by another motor vehicle, you could have whiplash. Other serious injuries are concussions, herniated spinal discs, pinched nerves in the back or neck, and spinal misalignments.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
These injuries may hurt now, but the pain will only get more intense the longer you wait for medical care. That’s because the damage done to the tissues, muscles, and ligaments can become chronic, which means it may be permanent. If you receive medical care immediately after your injury, you can avoid chronic pain.
You should first go to a hospital after a car crash. Then, talk to your doctor about seeing a chiropractor. Through techniques like adjustments, spinal decompressions, manipulations, and more, your chiropractor can use their hands or a device to significantly reduce your pain.
There’s no medication and no surgery. Some patients get enough relief through their chiropractor that they cancel their surgery. You may have the same results. Within a few appointments, you should notice less discomfort and pain, reduced stiffness and swelling, and better mobility and flexibility.
It should be reiterated: if you were in an auto accident, don’t wait to get medical care. The longer you avoid treatment, the more you risk long-term pain.
