Driving automobiles is one of the single most risk intensive things that Americans do every day. Most people experience at least a minor fender bender at some point in life. Even a seemingly insignificant collision can lead to neck and back pain, whiplash, or other minor and hard to diagnose personal injuries.
Here at Whole Health Chiropractic Center in Issaquah, WA, we work hard to bring real chiropractic care solutions and effective treatments to those suffering from an injury after a car accident.
How Your Chiropractor Can Help after an Auto Injury
It is easy to overestimate the protective powers of a seat belt or an airbag. These safety devices have saved many lives. However, to work properly they must expose the user to powerful forces that can themselves cause injury.
While the injuries incurred in an auto accident can have a serious impact on your productivity and your quality of life, your chiropractor can offer a range of effective treatments to get you back to health.
Chiropractic Adjustment: The core of any chiropractic practice, adjustments for the neck, spine, and other areas of the musculoskeletal system can restore mechanical balance to the body. Chiropractic adjustment can also relieve impingement on nerves and organs to restore lost or hindered function, reduce pain, and restore mobility. If you have developed whiplash after an auto accident, chiropractic adjustments may be key to recovery.
Massage Therapy: Much more than just an indulgence at your local spa, massage therapy can relieve tension in muscles and connective tissues to improve posture, reactivate frozen muscles and joints, and sometimes even make future injury less likely to occur.
Rehabilitative Exercise: In addition to chiropractic adjustments and therapeutic massage, rehabilitative exercise can restore strength to key stabilizing muscles. This can also go a long way to adjust for optimal posture, help with repetitive strain disorders, and help protect you from accidents and injury in the future.
Nutritional Counseling: It cannot be overlooked that for the body to heal fully and properly, the body must have the right building blocks to regenerate damaged tissues. A poor diet can make injury more severe or more likely to occur in the event of an auto accident.
Whiplash can be difficult to diagnose and to treat using more conventional, invasive care modalities. Using a combination of all of the above services, we have developed a strong track record treating our whiplash patients safely and effectively.
