5 Reasons You Should Try Chiropractic Care after an Accident

Chiropractic care should be an option that you consider after you’ve been in a car accident. Chiropractic doctors can diagnose and treat underlying neck and spinal stresses before they blossom into long-term chronic pain. Many injuries can go unnoticed for weeks before they turn into a painful situation. Here are several reasons why you want to give chiropractic a try after a car accident.

Reason #1: We can assess how badly you’ve been injured quickly and with less cost.

Obviously, if the injuries are serious or life threatening you’ll probably head to a hospital soon after the accident. However, if there are no major injuries we can investigate the causes of your pain. Chiropractic doctors spend years focusing on the spine and neck. We can quickly find out how bad your injuries are without expensive and invasive medical procedures.  If we find you need x-rays, we have the equipment to perform them in our office.

Reason #2: Injuries can remain invisible for some time.

Whiplash injuries can occur in wrecks of any speed, not just in accidents of greater than 5 MPH.  They may not have noticeable symptoms for a couple of days or up to a week. It can take time for a misaligned vertebra to begin causing pain or other disease symptoms. We can relieve that pain before it worsens by realigning the spine and neck. 

Reason #3: Painkillers will only mask the pain.

Most medical doctors are going to prescribe pain pills if you have pain after an accident. These pills can have negative side effects and they don’t address the root cause of the issue. Even if the medication takes the pain away, it is likely to return as soon as the medication wears off.

Reason #4: In some cases, pain can quickly be eliminated.

Depending on the injury, even a single round of chiropractic adjustment can bring significant pain relief after an accident. Who wants to be laid up with pain after an accident, painkillers or no?

Reason #5: You’ll get to experience what chiropractic care can do for you.

Chiropractic medicine is a holistic discipline. We treat the entire body through adjustments and lifestyle advice. After you’ve gone through a treatment schedule with us, you’ll have no doubts that chiropractic care is beneficial for you.
