Statistically, most of us will be involved in a car accident at least once in our lives. These accidents can leave people in pain for weeks, months, or indefinitely if they are not properly treated. As unpredictable as these events can be, it is important to know the treatment options available to you.
Back pain is one of the most common symptoms after a car accident. Other common pain types include:
- Stiffness or decreased movement
- Neck Pain or whiplash
- Pain and discomfort of the lower back
- Muscle strain and cramps
- Pain or numbness the radiates down the leg
- Headaches and dizziness
Chiropractic care provides drug-free pain relief for those who have suffered these types of injuries in car accidents.
Many of these issues stem from the jolt your body experiences during a car accident. This jolt can both cause the spine to be knocked out of alignment and strain your muscles. Unlike traditional medical treatments, which often use pain medicine to mask the injury, chiropractic treatments address the cause of the issue by using adjustments to relieve strain and realign the spine. Additional therapies, such as chiropractic massage, can help to ease pain.
