Unless you have been involved in a major auto accident, most of us may be more worried about the damage done to our car than about what damage could have taken place in our bodies. Even if you don’t appear to have any evident injuries, you could have hidden injuries that may not be apparent for weeks, months, or even years! If you neglect taking care of your body, you could develop a chronic and permanent condition with debilitating pain and arthritis as you get older. Subluxations that occurred in your spine during the accident often remain in your body and prevent healing. That may be the reason why over half of accident victims never completely recover from their injuries and may live on painkillers, physical therapy, or even repeated surgeries for years.
It’s important that you seek the help of an auto accident chiropractor as soon as possible after your accident. They will guide your body toward its most natural and rapid healing state. Chiropractic adjustment (also called spinal manipulation) will gently re-establish normal motion, taking the pressure off injured joints and allowing them to heal naturally!
Here are five major benefits of chiropractic care after a car accident:
- Reduces inflammation
- Minimizes pain
- Restores range of motion
- Reduces the development of scar tissue
- Avoid invasive surgery
Treatment from an auto accident chiropractor may make the difference between true recovery, healing, and strength, or lingering pain, sickness, and disability.
PLEASE NOTE: Chiropractors do not oppose medical care! It is crucial to control life-threatening situations, such as excessive bleeding, cessation of breath, broken bones, serious contusions, shock, and the like. Unfortunately, spinal nerve stress is generally not treated at hospitals. The damage from spinal subluxations may take months or years to surface and a simple spinal check-up could save an accident victim from much pain and illness later.
