Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injuries
Our spines are unique components of the human body. They are responsible for maintaining structure and movement throughout the body. Unfortunately, auto injuries almost always cause harm to the musculoskeletal system. Soft-tissue damage, muscle sprains or tears, and bruising are just some things we can't see with the naked eye, especially when they happen to the spine. At Back in Motion Chiropractic in Carrollton, TX, we offer several treatment options to help patients restore their functionality and return to living without pain.
Common Auto Injuries
After experiencing an auto accident injury, you may not notice some injuries until several days or weeks after the accident. Some injuries that may not manifest right away include:
- Muscle strains
- Disc damage
- Pinched nerves
Chiropractic Care for Muscle Pain
Comprehensive chiropractic treatment does not include prescription pain medications for pain relief. However, after an auto accident, patients are screened to understand their medical history, pain levels, and the source of their pain. We will provide a thorough analysis to understand a patient's current condition fully. We also offer x-ray testing when needed.
We use our chiropractic care to treat conditions caused by car accidents, including back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, and more. The initial screenings show us precisely what is causing your pain. Armed with this information, we know what needs to be done to make it stop. Our chiropractor will then create a customized treatment plan unique to the patient's needs. Not everyone has the same condition and having a personalized recovery program helps patients with a faster recovery.
Spinal Adjustments and Spinal Stretching
Even though spinal adjustments are at the forefront of any good chiropractic treatment, it doesn't mean that's what you need depending on your condition. Instead, the nature of your exact injuries will tell us which treatments you need the most.
Spinal stretching helps relieve the pressure in the spine's discs and relieves tension that otherwise won't occur on its own. Inflammation is common after an auto accident injury as the body moves to heal itself. Our targeted spinal stretching works with your body to accelerate this healing process.
Massage Therapy Is Different at Our Office
Instead of full-body relaxation massages you might typically experience in other therapeutic settings, we specialize in targeted massage therapy to help relieve your back pain, neck pain, or shoulder pain. Our chiropractor uses massage therapy techniques found in sports rehabilitation and deep-tissue work to help these areas of the body heal.
