How Chiropractic Will Help You Post Car Accident Injury 


chiropractic in Atlanta for car accident injury.jpgHave you recently been in a car accident? Even if you walked away with only a few bruises, you may have sustained serious damage to your spine. Whiplash injuries can cause a misalignment of the cervical spine, leading to years of chronic neck pain and headaches. A herniated disc in your lower back can also cause serious back pain.

Steps to Back Pain Relief Following a Car Accident Injury

Don’t wait until chronic pain from your accident injury sticks you on the sidelines. After a car accident injury, the best thing you can do for your body is to schedule a diagnostic appointment with our Atlanta chiropractor.

Here’s how chiropractic care can help your body heal:

Step 1: Relieve neck and back pain

After an accident, many patients are given medication to manage pain. While medication can numb main, drugs alone are not an effective option for long-term pain relief. The best way to relieve pain is to address the cause. That’s what chiropractic care does. For example, if you are suffering from neck pain, this is likely due to a spinal misalignment. A disc in your neck may be compressing a nearby nerve, causing radiating pain sensations and constant headaches. By restoring proper alignment to the spine, our chiropractor relieves pressure on this nerve, consequently relieving your pain.

Step 2: Treat the underlying injury

A spinal misalignment cannot “heal” on its own; as long as a mechanical misalignment persists, your body will be in pain and at risk for future injury. Chiropractic adjustments are an effective treatment because they restore proper alignment to your spine. A series of chiropractic adjustments typically produces the best results for our patients.

Step 3: Support the healing process

In addition to chiropractic adjustment, we may also recommend complementary therapies, such as corrective exercises, to support the healing process. Corrective exercises are a safe way to bring mobility back to the body without risking additional injury. Physiotherapy treatments can help ease muscle stiffness and soreness while supporting the internal healing process.
