The Benefits of Chiropractic Auto Injury Treatment After an Accident
If you’ve been in a minor auto accident, you might not think you need care from a Tallahassee chiropractor.
However, in many cases, pain from an injury such as whiplash doesn’t immediately manifest. That’s not to say, though, that an injury hasn’t occurred and that you’re at risk for permanent damage.
Your best bet is to visit your chiropractor for an evaluation for an injury and to receive chiropractic auto injury treatment.
Top 3 Benefits of Receiving Chiropractic Auto Injury Treatment
Your Tallahassee chiropractor has created your custom car accident injury treatment plan with three objectives in mind.
1. Reduction in Pain
After an auto injury, you’ll start experiencing pain for four reasons:
- Trauma (cuts, bruises, abrasions)
- Scar tissue build-up
- Body misalignment (particularly of some part(s) of the spine)
Chiropractic auto injury treatment can realign the spine, reducing muscle tension and inflammation, thereby reducing pain.
2. Increased Flexibility and Range of Motion
When your body goes through the inflammatory response, you’ll experience swelling and stiffness. You’ll also experience reduced flexibility from scar tissue, as it’s not as flexible as the muscle tissue it’s trying to repair.
Chiropractic car accident injury treatment, including massage therapy, chiropractic adjustment, and therapeutic stretches, can reduce scar tissue build-up and inflammation. You’ll notice that you have more flexibility and a better range of motion in the affected area.
3. Prevention of Long-Term Damage
One of the main reasons your Tallahassee chiropractor wants to see you immediately after an accident is to prevent long-term damage. Even if you don’t experience pain, you’ve likely sustained an injury. Your body is responding to the trauma with inflammation and scar tissue. The longer they’re left untreated, the more damage is done.
Over time, chronic inflammation can lead to chronic pain. Additionally, scar tissue build-up can result in permanent stiffness, loss of range of motion, and mobility issues.
