As you are driving down a busy street, you notice the car behind you is a little too close for comfort. You wish the driver would be a little more careful while driving, but there isn’t anything you can do about it, so you simply keep driving. As you continue to drive, suddenly, the car in front of you stops abruptly. As you pump your brake, you come to a complete stop with plenty of room to spare. Unfortunately, right as you look in your rear-view mirror, you see the car behind you slam into the back of your car. Your body is thrust against your seat belt, and you immediately feel a sharp pain in your back and neck.
Sadly, a car accident similar to the one described above is a reality for many people every day. Often, accidents are even more serious. The pain of whiplash, seat belt burn, and other injuries can manifest themselves immediately following the accident while some injuries may develop days or weeks later. Any number of injuries, varying in severity, can result from a car accident. These injuries can be debilitating and can wreak havoc on your life. When an injury besets you after a car accident, chiropractic care can be an effective means of treating your injury.
Different injuries require different methods of treatment. Not all injuries require a hospital visit. The severity of your injury should obviously influence the type of treatment you receive. For example, common injuries after a car accident include neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, headaches, stiffness, and others. Each of these tissue injuries can take some time to heal. A qualified chiropractor can help you with each of these injuries.
Can Chiropractic Care Help After a Car Accident?
Chiropractic treatment can provide pain relief for bones, muscles, joints, and connective tissue like tendons and ligaments. The chiropractor will perform a series of spinal adjustments and other treatments to help put your body in proper alignment. When your body is properly aligned, the body can heal itself without surgery or medication. This alignment can recover joint mobility that was lost by a traumatic event like a car accident.
