Accident Recovery with Chiropractic Care

Accident Recovery with Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is a non-invasive and drug-free approach to healthcare that focuses on using spinal adjustments to improve health and reduce pain. Chiropractic care can be beneficial for patients who have been involved in an accident and looking to recover.  Chiropractic care may also be beneficial for patients who have suffered whiplash, a common injury in car accidents. Whiplash occurs when the head is suddenly jerked forwards and then backwards or backward and forwards depending on the direction of impact, causing strain to the neck muscles and ligaments.

At Bazil Chiropractic Health Center we use gentle techniques to help restore mobility and reduce pain in the neck and surrounding areas. Its focuses on detecting and correcting spinal disorders and joint-related issues that affect the central nervous system, muscles, bones, tendons, and other connective tissues in the body. If an accident occurs, the spine and joints may become misaligned, and realigning them can help reduce pain and restore normal function.

The Key Benefits of Receiving Chiropractic Care After an Accident

  1. No need for medications

Many people worry about taking too many pain relief pills because it can cause them to become dependent or addicted to the drugs that they are given.  Fortunately, chiropractic care can get to the root of what is causing the discomfort, and provide effective pain relief without taking any prescriptions. 

  • Reduces inflammation in the body

Inflammation is a common side-effect of being involved in a fall accident or even a car accident.   The force on your body can cause micro-tears in ligaments and muscles.  These micro-tears are responsible for feeling stiffness and soreness after the accident.  Chiropractic can help your body to release anti-inflammatory chemicals that reduce internal swelling and pain, and promotes healing

  • Restore mobility

Pain and inflammation can cause loss of mobility in your back, neck, knees, and hands after the accident.  This means that you can find difficulty in moving around normally, and can limit participation in some activities. We will help you reduce pain and inflammation making the healing process faster, which also helps you regain mobility much sooner.  Generally, allowing patients to get back to normal activities faster and safer.

Common Chiropractic Techniques We Use to Reduce Pain and Recover From Injuries Include:

  • Massage Therapy: Massage techniques include using gentle pressure to reduce pain and increase blood flow to the injured area.

  • Therapeutic Activity: This technique includes using gentle movements to reduce tension in the muscles and tendons around the injured area.

  • Activator technique: This technique uses a small device to adjust the spine and joints; especially beneficial to geriatric patients.

  • Spinal rehabilitation exercises: This technique uses exercises to help the spine and joints recover and increase strength.

Treating post-accident injuries with chiropractic care is integral as a major port of a comprehensive treatment plan. We evaluate the patient’s health status, consider various factors such as age, injury severity, medical history, and lifestyle to design a customized treatment plan.

Chiropractic care is a safe and effective approach for post-accident injuries, and it is often used as an alternative, or complementary treatment, to traditional medical approaches. In addition to reducing pain and improving function, chiropractic care can also help prevent future injuries by addressing underlying issues that may lead to further damage.

Overall, chiropractic care is a safe and effective way for accident victims to recover and regain their mobility and quality of life. It is always of upmost importance to consult with a qualified chiropractor and receive a proper diagnosis before beginning any treatment.

If you have suffered an accident, it is important to seek immediate medical attention, including chiropractic care, to prevent further damage and facilitate your recovery.
