Here at Shadowood Chiropractic Center, we would like to remind you to schedule an appointment for an initial evaluation if you have recently been in a car accident.
Reasons to See our Boca Raton Chiropractor after a Car Accident
Car accidents can cause damage to your back, neck and soft tissues even if you have no visible injuries. Even accidents at speeds as low as 5mph can cause back and neck pain.
Hidden, No Symptom Injuries
The adrenaline rush you experience during the car accident can last for days, masking the pain of your soft tissue injuries. In some instances, individuals do not feel pain for days or even weeks after the accident. This means that when they finally do feel pain, they may not associate it with the auto accident.
Scar Tissue and Inflammation Reduction
From the moment you get injured, your body starts to heal itself. It sends blood and extra nutrients to the area to try and correct the damage. This causes scar tissue and inflammation. Scar tissue is tough bands of fibrous tissue that can limit your range of motion. Inflammation causes pain and can lead to nearby tissues becoming damaged.
Medication-Free Pain Relief and Faster Healing Times
Chiropractic care offers medication-free, natural pain relief. Our chiropractor can treat many different types of car accident injuries, including back and neck pain, whiplash, bulging and herniated disks and damage to soft tissues.
The goal of chiropractic care is to treat your injuries to reduce your symptoms permanently. Traditional medical treatment often involves rest and pain killers or anti-inflammatories. Unfortunately, while these treatments will reduce your pain, they will not correct spinal mis-alignments, break apart scar tissue or speed your recovery time.
A combined treatment program of rest, ice and heat, chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy can help realign your vertebrae, break apart scar tissue and decrease your recovery time naturally, and once your injuries are healed, your pain is permanently reduced.
