Why should I go to a Chiropractor after a car accident
A: The short answer is natural PAIN RELIEF! Chiropractors offer not only the adjustment but also effective modalities that help reduce the inflammation and pain after an accident. Additionally, Chiropractors are the most equipped to prevent your injury from turning into a chronic issue that can affect you for years to come. The most common injury in a car accident is a sprain commonly referred to as ‘whiplash’. A sprain is defined as an overstretching of a ligament. A ligament can only overstretch when the bones of the adjacent joint have separated to some degree. Restoring alignment to joints is the Chiropractic specialty! Just think, if the bones of an injured joint are not properly aligned then the ligament will heal improperly putting you at risk for future damage and pain to that joint. An aligned joint allows for proper healing of a sprained ligament and wards off chronic issues.
