Pain From a Car Accident? Seek Chiropractic Care!
Car accidents and other types of personal injuries – even minor ones- can cause unexpected, severe injuries if the body was pushed, stretched or twisted in an awkward manner. Chiropractic is one of the most effective ways to treat injuries from a car accident and other types of personal injuries. Chiropractic adjustments can correct misalignment of the spine and will help restore normal function to the nervous system which promotes natural healing. Early care and treatment provides the best chance for successful healing and a faster recovery, and can decrease the chance of suffering from long term soft tissue damage.
Some injuries from car accidents may not be obvious immediately, but become painful and apparent in the days following an accident. Whiplash- when a part of the body is whipped back then forward beyond its normal limits- is one of the most common injuries sustained in accidents. Micro-tears can develop in the surrounding ligaments causing inflammation, pain and discomfort such as:
- Neck pain/stiffness
- Blurred vision
- Shoulder/arm/ low back pain
As soft tissue injuries heal, scar tissue develops. If the spine is not aligned and full range of motion is not recovered before scarring sets in, it can ultimately inhibit normal functioning and even lead to spinal degeneration.
At HealthQuest Chiropractic & Spine Pain Solutions, we use a variety of non-invasive, drug-free techniques, including spinal adjustments, spinal decompression, rehabilitative exercises, and even ultrasound soft wave therapy to help
- Relieve pain
- Restore mobility
- Support long term healing
