Why You Need Comprehensive Treatment from a Chiropractor Following a Car Accident

Many of the patients we see at Veeva Chiropractic Clinic have sustained injuries in car accidents. It may have been a minor fender bender in a parking lot or being rear-ended at a stoplight. Or, it may have been a more harrowing accident. But whatever the circumstance, a common thread in the experiences of these patients is that they often didn’t feel they were injured at first. It wasn’t until weeks later that pain symptoms started to surface. And then they might not have associated their pain with the accident. Our clinic offers comprehensive treatment to address these delayed injuries and help patients recover fully.

Veeva Chiropractic specializes in getting to the root cause of pain problems following car accidents. Whether you’ve suffered a whiplash of the neck, injuries to the back or hips or any other musculoskeletal assault, we have the treatment modalities to help.

Comprehensive Treatment

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injuries

Once we’ve thoroughly assessed your condition, including the taking of x-rays, we’ll set up a comprehensive treatment plan to relieve your pain and help your body to heal. We think you’ll experience the following benefits:

  • Reduced pain in the whole body. You may know that chiropractic relieves pain by aligning the spine to release stress on nerves, but there’s another benefit you may not be aware of. Physical manipulation of the body helps release pain-reducing hormones. These hormones go to work not only in areas injured in the accident, but also in parts of the body experiencing pain before the injury occurred.
  • Reduced inflammation. The muscle tears that result from a whiplash, for example, will become inflamed and cause pain. Manipulation of the spine helps release interleukin 6, an anti-inflammatory substance produced in the body to heal such acute injuries.
  • Reduced scar tissue. The creation of internal scar tissue after an injury is part of the body’s natural healing response. But scar tissue can cause stiffness. Chiropractic care can break up scar tissue more quickly than would otherwise be the case.
  • Restored motion. Chiropractic adjustmentsrelieve nerve impingement and inflammation, not only relaxing soft tissue so it can move more freely, but also helping blood flow so important nutrients can arrive where needed, speeding the healing process to restore fuller motion.

Chiropractic Care Works Without Drugs or Surgery

Drugs and surgery may be indicated in certain cases, but we think they should not be the first resort. When accident victims receive prompt chiropractic care, they start to receive immediate relief and prevent chronic problems later on.
