If you've been injured, it's important to consult our clinic right away and prevent symptoms from worsening.
When you are hurt in an auto accident, the emotional trauma is devastating. The injuries can be even worse. Depending on the positioning of the body and the severity of the accident, any one of a number of physical conditions can be caused by impact. These can range from concussion, whiplash, upper and lower spinal injuries, hip injuries, and a myriad of others.
Spinal injuries can be some of the most intense injuries from an accident, because the pain can be severe and long-lasting. Spinal injuries, depending on the location, can cause pain in other parts of the body, making the normal functions of daily life unbearably difficult. Drugs are of limited effectiveness, because the relief only lasts as long as the drug.
Treatment by a chiropractor when you are injured can make all the difference in the way you feel. Chiropractors work on the nerves, muscles and joints, which are the very things which are most affected when you have an auto accident. Proper chiropractic care is a natural method, which works with the body to enable it to better heal itself.
Massage, which is a part of chiropractic care, releases endorphins in the body, which can be very beneficial for the shock that joints and muscles receive after an accident. Massage helps to break up muscular scar tissue which often develops in the days after an accident, and helps to relieve stress.
