If you have been injured in a auto accident, you are not alone. Auto accidents are among the leading causes of injury among Americans, and often require medical treatment. Even if your injuries seem minor, we always recommend seeking medical treatment as soon as possible following an auto accident. Injuries sustained from auto accidents aren’t always obvious immediately following the accident. They can be hidden for days, weeks, or even months. That said, if your injuries are not treated right away, your injuries can become worse and cause lasting damage.
Chiropractic care can help tremendously with auto accident injuries. It is a non-invasive treatment that helps your body’s natural healing ability.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help Following an Auto Accident
Chiropractors can treat all different types of injuries such as back pain, neck pain, whiplash, and other conditions. At Pinnacle Chiropractic, our staff uses a variety of treatment methods to decrease your pain and prevent further damage. Auto accidents are not always avoidable, but severe injury can be by seeking medical treatment from our chiropractor. There are many different perks of seeking chiropractic treatment for your auto accidents, including: decreased pain, less scar tissue, no long term damage, and restores mobility.
Decreases Pain and Inflammation
Auto accidents can cause micro tears in the muscles and ligaments throughout the entire body. These types of injuries are not always seen on tests such as X-rays. While these injuries are not always obvious immediately following an accident, they can cause a lot of pain and inflammation.
Chiropractic care works to realign the spine to increase circulation of blood and nutrients, and promote healing. Without treatment, inflammation can cause stiffness and a lot of pain. Medications are not always with the answer with inflammatory injuries, which is why we offer chiropractic manipulation to find you relief.
Diagnoses and Treats Hidden Injuries
Some common auto accident injuries develop over time, and even get worse over that time. The key to diagnosing and treating these hidden injuries is early treatment. Our chiropractor has a lot of years of experience treating auto accident injuries and he knows what to look for.
Reduces Scar Tissue
If you have been injured in an auto accident and the injury is left untreated, scar tissue can form. Scar tissue can cause stiffness and discomfort and last for a very long time. Our chiropractor targets damaged areas by breaking apart scar tissue and allowing these areas to heal faster.
Prevents Long-term Damage and Pain
Chiropractic adjustments can decrease pain throughout the entire body. Our treatments can release tension in the injured area and allow the muscles and tissues to get back to working properly. As a result, you won’t have to worry about experiencing long-term damage and pain. By treating your injuries now, you are saving yourself the pain and expenses for more treatment down the road.
Pain and stiffness are common symptoms of an untreated injury following an auto accident. That said, over time your mobility can become increasingly worse. A spinal adjustment can go a long way towards restoring your mobility throughout your entire body – not just the injured area. Our chiropractic treatments will also help your body heal quicker and better.
