Let’s start with the facts.
You do it every day. You can’t get to a desired destination without it. You’ve spent a lot of money on it.
Now, the scary part.
Over 37,000 people die in car accidents each year. In addition, an average of 2.35 million people are injured or disabled per year in crashes.
Driving is a necessary part of life but sometimes, (really) bad luck comes our way. And with driving, we often can’t do too much to avoid it.
If you’ve ever suffered from an injury as a result of a car accident, it’s time to consider a non-invasive solution for treatment: chiropractic care.
We’ll discuss common injuries as well as benefits of chiropractic care for your auto injury treatment.
Common Types of Injuries from a Car Accident
The types and severity of injuries you could sustain from a crash depend on multiple factors including: if you were wearing a seatbelt, if your airbag deployed, the speed you were going, etc.
In general, here are the most common types of injuries due to a car accident:
- Soft tissue – Like whiplash
Benefits of Chiropractic Care After a Car Accident
Although your accident might have been horrible, it doesn’t mean your treatment must be. One study shows that auto injuries significantly contribute to the population of Americans who suffer from chronic spine pain.
Here are a few ways you can benefit from chiropractic care:
Range of Motion
Chiropractic adjustments will mobilize your spine to allow blood and nutrients flow to the areas needed, thus allowing your body to regain range of motion.
No Long-Term Pain
Sometimes, injuries after a car accident go unnoticed. Side effects aren’t necessarily immediate but they can cause long-term pain.
If you go to a chiropractor right after your collision, they’ll be able to diagnose your injuries quickly and help treat them before they have the chance to turn into something more traumatic.
The last thing you want to have to endure after the already scarring auto accident is surgery.
Here, your chiropractor will perform gentle, safe adjustments that realign your spine and joints, which reduces pain and promotes full recovery.
