Chiropractic Care and Accident Related Injuries

Injuries sustained in automobile accidents can be extremely painful, even if no bones are broken. Whiplash injuries are commonly seen in individualized who have been involved in car accidents. Chiropractic care has been proven to be an effective treatment option for individuals who have received this type of injury. A chiropractic adjustment restores balance and helps both bone and muscle regain their natural position within the body, eliminating pain and swelling. A chiropractor can correct many structural injuries that can pull or strain muscles, ligaments and tendons.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help?

Chiropractic care has many advantages. An adjustment not only restores balance, it allows the bones to assume their natural position. Inflammation and abrupt movements can cause bones and muscles to shift and be forced into unnatural positions. When an adjustment is performed soon after an injury, the body will be able to recover much more quickly. Many chiropractors employ massage therapists to further assist their patients with the healing process. 

Massaging an injured area after an adjustment has been performed, increases blood flow to the area providing additional oxygen that is needed to sup

port the healing process. A chiropractor can use several different techniques to help restore mobility and improve range of motion. After an auto accident, muscles throughout the body may be stiff and sore for several days. A visit to the chiropractor can help loosen stiff muscles, allowing the patient to relax and begin to heal.
