Treating a car accident injury generally starts with a thorough assessment of the spinal alignment and anatomy. Overlying muscle tension and spasms are often a result of protective reflexive guarding, so by realigning the spine through a chiropractic adjustment (including gentle non-thrust adjustments) we can accelerate and optimize healing from the get-go.
Other main goals for healing auto accident injuries is to control inflammation, relieve pain, decrease pressure on and promote healing of discs and nerves, promote increased circulation, reduce swelling, improve psychological health, and restore normal mobility, strength, and function of affected connective tissues. We do this through a variety of drug-free techniques including massage therapy, non-surgical spinal decompression, and aromatherapy.
Don’t have any signs or symptoms of a car accident injury and think you feel fine? We still encourage you to come in, since hidden inflammation and tissue damage could be ongoing unabated and devolve into a significant issue if treatment is delayed.
