How Chiropractors Can Help Recover from a Car Accident

A car accident may not only wreck your car but also can leave you in an acute or chronic pain well after you leave the hospital. With the rise in population in Edmonton, the road accidents are increasing as well. Local hospitals are reporting increased car accidents cases in the past few years. If you are suffering from a car accident injury, Redefined Health are here to provide you a pain management solution.

There are dozens of collisions in Edmonton every day—some major, some minor—and some leave the victims permanently injured for the rest of their lives. Many people involved in a car accident have the misconception that if they are not experiencing any initial pain they are absolutely fine. Remember, sometimes it can take weeks or months for victims to notice their injuries.

Whiplash Injuries!

Whiplash is a result of a blow to the spine and is usually felt in the back or neck area. While some whiplash cases build up only tensions in the muscles causing mild pain, other can misalign the vertebrae causing excruciating pain. Herniated discs and pinched nerves can leave an individual with chronic pain that may get worse if left untreated.

Are you experiencing from any of the following symptoms?

  • Neck and back pain

  • Migraines

  • Headaches

  • Shoulder pain

  • Fatigue

  • Jaw pain

  • Sleep disturbances

If yes, contact Edmonton chiropractors as soon as possible.

Chiropractic Care Treats Pain From a Car Accident Injury

Traditional medical care for neck and back pain caused from a car accident relies on medications to “mask” a patient’s symptoms. Pain-relieving medications may provide immediate relief, but they are definitely not a long term pain management solution. Moreover, medications alone cannot help spine injury patients to regain mobility.

Chiropractic care for car accident injuries can help in a multiple ways.

Chiropractors use manual techniques to manipulate the positions of vertebrae. This mitigates pain and maintains proper posture. They conduct a full functional assessment of an individual’s neck and back, and form a treatment plan to get that individual back to their normal routine.

Acute and chronic pain both can benefit from a chiropractic treatment. There are various methods of alleviating muscle stiffness and pain, and a chiropractor will probably do an adjustment to correct anything that may seem out of place.

It is not only a major accident that can cause serious damage to the musculoskeletal system. Unfortunately, collisions at speeds as slow as 30 mph can still cause a blow to the cervical spine causing a whiplash injury. Chiropractic care is the most effective way to support the body’s natural healing process and bring the body back to full range of motion.
