Auto Accident Chiropractic Treatment

Why You Need Chiropractic Treatments After an Auto Accident

You may be surprised that chiropractic care can help you feel better without using drugs after an auto accident. If you are experiencing neck discomfort or back pain after a car accident, you may have sustained whiplash or another spinal severe injury. If you do not receive the proper care after an auto accident, such injuries could have a serious and negative impact on your health in the long term

Understanding The Impact of An Auto Accident

Auto accidents cause neck and or back pain by displacing segment(s) of the spine out of its place and over-extending, thereby damaging, the soft tissues of the neck, including muscles, tendons, and or ligaments.  These injuries often also compromise the integrity of the vertebral disc(s), putting pressure on nearby nerves of the spine to cause pain, discomfort, soreness, and tension as a result of the body absorbing the force of the collision's impact. A whiplash injury is caused by the force of a rear-impact crash, which causes a fast acceleration-deceleration of the head forward and backward.


These types of auto accident injuries that require chiropractic treatments are quite common across the country, especially in major metropolitan areas like Baltimore, which includes the suburban community of Columbia.

How Chiropractic Treatments Can Help You After an Auto Accident

Chiropractors are experts in all-natural, pain-relieving treatments of all sorts of neuromusculoskeletal issues, as chiropractors are well-trained in holistic methods of relieving spinal pain, including neck and back pain, without any pharmacological intervention. With the help of a good chiropractic doctor, you can prevent yourself and your loved ones from spiraling into the world of addictive pain-killer drugs.


Chiropractors can aid you in easing your pain and discomfort without using any addictive drugs. Here are some ways chiropractors can help you:  

#1 Help in Pain Relief

A chiropractor can help ease your pain much more quickly, even though soft tissue injuries can take several months to fully heal.  Car accident victims often report an 80% reduction in pain after just a few weeks of chiropractic care.

#2 Long-Term Aid

Chiropractic care ensures long-term health and well-being. Auto accident patients are more prone to future injuries because of the physical deterioration and fatigue sustained from their prior traumatic injuries. For auto accident patients, rehab exercises which strengthen the spinal muscles and increase stability are also essential to their recovery.  Thereafter, patients' health will be positively impacted in the long run by receiving regular chiropractic care for good spinal hygiene and maintenance.


#3 Mobility Restoration

For patients who are suffering from whiplash, movement will be challenging due to the discomfort and stiffness in the neck. Patients who receive chiropractic treatments after their auto accidents are able to move their neck more easily and have a much better chance of restoring full neck mobility before scar tissue forms.
