How Can Chiropractic Care Help Those Involved in an Auto Accident?
Chiropractic services are advised after a vehicle accident because they can aid in the recovery of the spine following whiplash or other accident-related injuries. The advantages of chiropractic treatment following a vehicle accident may include less inflammation, alleviating pain, returning range of motion, reducing scar tissue.
Physical accidents can cause inflammation in the body. While some amount of inflammation is natural and reflects your body's attempts to recover, too much may be harmful to your tissues and cause discomfort. When a chiropractor on our team adjusts your spine to realign the spinal cord, your body may respond by reducing its inflammatory cytokine production, which may decrease both inflammation in your body and pain.
Inflammatory back pain differs from mechanical back pain in many ways. Inflammation in the spine may produce stiffness and agony that gets worse with time spent sitting still.
You can potentially reduce pain throughout your body when you get chiropractic adjustments following a vehicle accident. Your body may naturally release pain-relieving hormones during spinal manipulation by a chiropractor on our team.
When your neck or back loses flexibility as a result of a vehicle accident, it is known as degenerative disc disease (spondylosis). Spondylosis can be caused by misalignment of the spine's joints, scar tissue, and/or inflammation. By mobilizing your spine and correcting the joints' alignment, a chiropractic adjustment can help you regain range of motion.
Scar tissue is common following a vehicle accident. When muscles or tendons are damaged, the body attempts to heal them by creating scar tissue from collagen. Unfortunately, scar tissue may lead to chronic pain and stiffness. A chiropractor on our team may utilize methods to break up the scar tissue so the region can heal more quickly if it is causing you pain.
Most individuals want to avoid surgery after a vehicle accident if at all feasible. If you wait too long to address your injuries while continuing your actions as normal, you may continue to injure yourself which may cause surgery to be necessary. Chiropractic therapies are non-invasive and are used to realign the spine naturally. Chiropractors may help you avoid having surgery in the future if you get chiropractic care immediately following an accident.
