Benefits of Chiropractic Care After Car Accident
The jolting and jostling that comes with an accident can cause joint problems, misalignment, and soft-tissue damage. This can be hard to detect on an X-ray and even more difficult to treat with traditional medicine.
This is where our chiropractors can be invaluable. They will be able to locate the source of pain, and will work to correct it, helping you heal and live better.
Often, pain after an accident is caused by micro-tears in muscles and ligaments that are not visible on an X-ray. By using special adjustments, a chiropractor can help to reduce inflammation in the area, which can aid in your recovery and speed up your healing process.
Improved mobility and range of motion
One of the main problems that people can experience after a car accident is reduced mobility in their back, neck or arm due to spinal misalignments and injuries. By working with your chiropractor, they can restore your body’s normal alignment, allowing for greater mobility and flexibility.
After a trauma such as an accident, it can be hard to get a good night’s rest. Fortunately, chiropractic care can promote improved sleep by relieving tension and muscle tension throughout your entire body.
Reduced medication usage
After an accident, some people take prescription painkillers, but these medications can be highly addictive and can negatively affect your quality of life. When you see a chiropractor, they will be able to identify the source of your pain and make sure that it is healed, so you can wean yourself off these drugs.
