Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injury
An auto accident injury can change your entire life. One day you’re well and active and the next you’re suffering from pain, stiffness, and limited mobility. If your pain is due to a musculoskeletal injury, chiropractic care can help with pain relief and healing. A visit to Dr. Josh Walker, D.C. in Carlsbad, CA, for your auto accident injury could be the first step towards a complete recovery.
Common Musculoskeletal Auto Accident Injuries
Auto accidents can cause diverse musculoskeletal injuries like whiplash, sprains, strains, herniated discs, and soft tissue injuries. The sudden impact of a car crash can also throw your skeletal system out of balance, causing misalignments in your spine. If misaligned joints or bones compress spinal nerves, the result could be debilitating pain and restricted mobility. An auto accident injury can cause neck, shoulder, or back pain, headaches, dizziness, muscle stiffness, inflammation, and loss of flexibility. Left untreated, these injuries can cause painful symptoms for years.
Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injuries
Chiropractic care is designed to treat the pain and discomfort of musculoskeletal auto accident injuries. Chiropractic treatments are non-invasive and drug-free, reducing your risk of getting addicted to prescription medications for pain relief. Our chiropractor utilizes all natural techniques and therapies to expedite your healing.
Here’s What You Can Expect from Our Chiropractic Auto Accident Injury Treatment:
We’ll utilize chiropractic techniques like spinal adjustments to correct misalignments in your spine that are causing pain and restricting your movements. Adjustments also reduce muscle tension and inflammation to improve flexibility and mobility.
Restored Range of Motion and Mobility
Soft tissue injuries can lead to stiff, sore muscles and joints that inhibit your mobility. Natural therapies like massage and hot/cold treatments can help alleviate stiffness and soreness to restore your range of motion and increase your mobility before scar tissue develops.
Long-term Healing/Prevention of Future Injuries
An auto accident injury can leave your muscles weak and vulnerable to future injuries. We’ll teach you corrective exercises you can do at home to strengthen your core muscles and improve your flexibility to make you less susceptible to future injuries.
