A car accident can be one of the most frightening experiences of your life. Most of us have become so used to driving in our cars that we do not even think about the fact that we routinely travel between 30 and 70 miles per hour. Fortunately, cars and trucks are safer than ever before, and they do a great job of saving the lives of people who are in accidents. However, the technology that does such a good job of saving lives cannot always prevent injuries from occurring. Catalyst Chiropractic & Rehab is here to help you begin the process of recovering from the auto accident you experienced, from a minor fender bender to a more serious accident.
Treatment For Neck And Back Injuries After A Car Accident
Treating people who have been injured in auto accidents is one of our specialties. We can treat a wide variety of injuries, from blunt force impact to whiplash, soft tissue injuries and everything in between. Auto accidents tend to conjure up images of people suffering back injuries and whiplash. These injuries are extremely common and do not always present themselves right away. When you are involved in a car accident, your body is thrown around inside the car, while the safety restraints (like your seat belt) cause your body to stop moving. Even in less severe auto accidents, you can experience sharp, unexpected movements that are stopped abruptly by seat belts or airbags, or both. As stated, those technologies are great tools for saving lives, but they can also be one source of injury.
Chiropractic Care For Treatment of Auto Accidents
Back and neck injuries are common in auto accidents, and Catalyst Chiropractic & Rehab can help you get back on the road to recovery. We will diagnose the nature and extent of your injury, and that in turn will help us identify the best approach to help you begin your recovery. An auto accident that results in back pain almost always signals some degree of spinal misalignment. Our rehabilitation process will therefore likely include a recommendation for chiropractic adjustment.
Auto accidents that cause spinal misalignment can also do damage to the muscular systems that support your spinal column. In such cases, we also recommend massage therapy to relieve stress on the affected muscles. The specific nature of your injury helps us determine the degree of emphasis of each treatment. Acupuncture is a wonderful way to help your body call on its own, natural healing mechanisms, so it is also common for us to recommend acupuncture as a way to round out the rehab process.
