Few things in life are as scary as a car accident, especially if the accident proved to be a close call. Being in a vehicle that weighs several thousand pounds and is capable of moving at high speeds when it strikes another vehicle can end up causing lifelong trauma, both physically and psychologically. It is important to have a doctor check you out after even a minor auto accident to see if you need rehab. Catalyst Chiropractic & Rehab specializes in helping our clients recover from the physical effects of auto accidents and, by extension, our clients often find themselves feeling better emotionally as well.
Reduce Pain And Discomfort After An Car Accident
Not all auto accidents occur at high speeds or cause significant bodily trauma, of course, but even low speed fender benders can result in pain and discomfort. If you have ever woken up after “sleeping wrong” with a stiff neck, it will make sense that the jolt from even a minor accident can cause similar neck pain. The jolt can cause the misalignment of one or more vertebrae in your neck, which can also cause the muscles that support your spine to seize up and begin to spasm. Even a minor impact, which may cause no damage to the vehicle itself, can cause great pain to you.
More severe auto accidents often result in more severe injuries, pain, and discomfort. Our knowledge and expertise in the delivery of treatments can reduce pain and discomfort and help you to achieve a faster recovery. Regardless of the kind of injuries you suffer, we can help you. Rehabilitation from even severe broken bones will require attention for the parts of the body that support and are connected to the broken bones. Massage can do wonders for the muscles and soft tissue near and around the affected area. Massage therapy is known to improve blood flow, too, which aids the healing process.
Spinal Adjustments, Massage Therapy And Rehab
Because car accidents often cause physical trauma, spinal rehabilitation is often highly effective. The impact of most auto accidents causes some degree of misalignment of the spine. In such cases, chiropractic adjustment is likely to be recommended by our staff. Realigning the spine after an auto accident also encourages better blood flow and skeletal posture and strength.
