Estimates reveal that more than three million people are injured in car accidents in the U.S. annually. Injuries range from mild to severe and may not manifest in pain or stiffness until well after you leave the scene of the accident. Catalyst Chiropractic and Rehab offers multiple treatments to help with auto accident recovery for individuals living or working in the Blaine, MN area. We will focus on helping you heal, reduce pain and stiffness, and get you back to your pre-accident condition as quickly as possible!
There are many different types of injuries and conditions that can be a result of an auto accident, and chiropractic care can help. One of the most common injuries, even in low-speed crashes, is whiplash (the sudden front-to-back movement of the head and neck). Left untreated, whiplash can lead to headaches, shoulder and upper back pain, chronic neck pain, and numbness. Another common injury is back pain. The bones that make up the spinal column can be crushed, fractured, or dislocated. Ligaments, nerves, muscles, or even the spinal cord itself can be damaged. The full effects of a spinal cord injury are not felt right away. Inflammation, swelling, bleeding, and fluid buildup in or around the spinal cord can lead to additional damage and pain.
Non-Invasive Treatment For Auto Accidents
Chiropractic care can be highly effective for treating a wide range of car accident injuries, both immediately after the accident as well as even weeks or months later if you are still struggling. Our approach looks at you holistically, and we focus on your overall wellness. We will target your specific areas of injury, pain, and stiffness, but we will also give you strategies for maintaining overall good health. This approach will result in positive results that will last well after your auto accident injury has healed.
Chiropractic Care Following A Car Accident
Chiropractic adjustments will help you heal from injuries that are related to tightness and strain in your back and neck, and will relieve tension in your body, and improve any range of motion issues you have. Massage is a great tool for relieving pain and inflammation after an accident. Acupuncture targets a specific area of your body that is injured and uses very small needles to pinpoint the exact location of your injury and treat it at the source.
