You got into a fender bender. It was an inconvenience, but you didn’t think much of it. Your car came out of the experience with a few scratches, but you didn’t have so much as a bruise.
Fast-forward a few weeks – or even months. You are feeling a dull, unshakable soreness – and it isn’t going away. This isn’t a phantom pain. It is likely the result of your car accident injury.
These issues can take time to make themselves known. But when they do, it’s essential that you listen to your body.
When to seek chiropractic care
Every patient is different – and our general rule of thumb after a car accident is this: If something feels off, give us a call. Your body is trying to tell you something.
However, there are a few instant indicators that suggest your body needs professional chiropractic care. Give our team a call if you are experiencing:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Limited range of motion
How chiropractic care can help your car accident injury
We aren’t focused on “quick” fixes. Rather, chiropractic care seeks to get to the root of the issue – and work with your body to heal itself in a sustainable way. With chiropractic care, you can expect:
- Reduced inflammation
After a car accident, your body can become inflamed. This is a defense mechanism; it’s trying to protect the impacted areas. But with time, it needs help to heal. We use a core set of adjustments that help your body reduce inflammation.
- Better motion
Our goal is to use chiropractic adjustments to reduce inflammation and promote healing. This, in turn, results in a better range of motion for your body.
- Pain relief
With chiropractic adjustments, your body has a safe and effective way to rid itself of a pain cycle. It also has a proved track record of success – more than 90% of patients reported neck pain relief after chiropractic care.
Your body deserves to function to its full potential. Don’t let yourself languish after a car accident; get the chiropractic care you need to feel success and health at every level.
