You’ve been in a car accident. You seem to be okay, but a few days after the initial accident, you’re starting to feel a lot of pain and discomfort. This isn’t uncommon. When you visit one of our chiropractors at Back To Mind, we’ll talk to you about your pain and potential auto injuries. We’ll create a customized auto injury treatment plan to address them. It is always our goal to ensure you have the best level of care available to you.
The body is impacted significantly during an auto accident of any type. Though you may not have visible injuries initially, your spinal column is likely taking the brunt of the accident. The jarring, forceful movement of your body during this type of accident, causes misalignment and damage to the ligaments, muscles, and joints in the spinal column. This is especially true of rear-endings, where your body and head move forward rapidly and spring back quickly.
You may experience:
If you are experiencing these symptoms, contact our team to discuss treatment options. This type of damage does not go away on its own.
At Back To Mind, we offer a wide range of treatment options to address these concerns. You’ll always receive a customized treatment plan that addresses the pain and injuries you have. Treatment options may include:
With the use of gentle, but forceful chiropractic techniques, we can realign the spinal column to reduce the pressure on the nerve roots. This method aims to correct the underlying cause of your pain – the misalignment of the spinal column’s vertebrae. This is a common cause of pain after a vehicle accident.
We also need to help your body to begin moving again in the proper manner. We’ll teach you corrective exercises that work to strengthen and correct the underlying cause of your pain. Muscles and connective tissues can be put back in alignment using this type of care.
Perhaps one of the most important types of care after an auto accident is massage therapy. Your body’s muscles and ligaments are often inflamed from being pull and stretched out of place from the movement of your body after an accident. With this treatment, we speed up your body’s natural healing ability by increasing blood flow to the injured areas.
Even if you think you are okay, come in to see your Hollywood chiropractor at Back To Mind for an evaluation. Our auto injury treatment will provide you with a holistic way to simply feel better and to heal properly. Call us for an appointment.
