Being involved in either a minor or major car accident can lead to long-term and short term effects, if any injuries are sustained. The pain may result from muscle spasms, a slipped vertebra or other causes. Whatever the cause may be, the pain can be excruciating, and may get worse over time, eventually preventing a person from performing daily activities. If left untreated, it can lead to other serious health problems.
Chiropractic care provides a drug free treatment for pain associated with car accidents. Chiropractors can treat neck and back injuries, whiplash injuries and alleviate soft tissue pain and other injuries.
Chiropractic Treatment Procedures
First, a chiropractor will perform x-rays to determine the root cause of pain and the extent of the injuries.
Chiropractic treatment consists of the following:
Chiropractic adjustments on a patient’s back and neck:
The chiropractor performs adjustments to align the back and neck. The goal of a chiropractic adjustment is to correct structural alignment, eliminate pain and improve the body’s physical function.
Massage the soft tissues:
It helps to reduce tension in the muscles, reduce swelling and inflammation, improve circulation, and encourage quick recovery.
A chiropractor develops an exercise program to strengthen the patient’s back and muscles.
A chiropractor provides nutritional advice to accelerate the healing process.
