Auto Accident Injury Treatment
Car accidents, unfortunately, are a fact of life. Over 75% of drivers have been in at least one accident and, regardless if you're the driver, if you get into a vehicle for a 1,000-mile trip, then you have a 1 in 366 chance of being in a car accident. So, if you've been in an accident and are suffering from an auto incident injury, you should seek out medical help if you need it -- both immediately after the accident and in the weeks that follow. If you live in Fayetteville or the surrounding communities, choose A Healthy Back for your auto accident injury treatment.
How Your Chiropractor Can Help After an Auto Accident
Our Fayetteville chiropractor works every day with patients who are suffering from an auto accident injury. One of the most common injuries we see are whiplash injuries that can cause both neck and back pain that can range from minor to severe and even debilitating. Our chiropractor offers advanced care that can help in the following ways:
You can't always see the causes of your pain and so even if you didn't get cut up or bruised in the car accident, that doesn't mean you aren't suffering from other types of injuries. If you wake up the next morning sore and in severe pain following a car accident but can't see any visible signs, then what likely happened is you suffered micro-tears in your muscles and ligaments. These micro-tears can cause inflammation and a lot of pain. Chiropractic techniques can be used to help reduce that inflammation and expedite the healing process of those micro-tears.
As your body begins to heal following a car accident, it's important to ensure that your body heals properly and that you continue to enjoy the range of motion you had before the accident. At our chiropractor’s office, we include specialized massage and physical therapy as part of our overall approach. These two therapies in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments will help ensure that your spine and muscles stay mobilized. This also helps to expedite the healing process and, arguably, more importantly, ensures you enjoy a full range of motion shortly following the accident.
