5 Benefits of Chiropractic Care Following an Auto Accident

Whether you find yourself rear-ended getting off an exit or are involved in a low-speed fender bender, your body has experienced trauma, even if you consider it a minor accident. As your Greenville, SC chiropractor, I want to share five reasons why getting chiropractic after an automobile accident is beneficial.

#1. Addresses Injuries That Aren’t Always Obvious

While broken bones or bruising are easy to see following an auto accident, there are other injuries such as whiplash that are not always apparent immediately afterward.

It could take hours or even a few days to experience the symptoms of injuries like whiplash. Symptoms can include headaches, muscle soreness, dizziness and pain in the upper back and neck.

If you ignore potential injuries that can lead to chronic pain. Dr. Brown can properly diagnose your injuries and get you started on a treatment plan before the pain becomes excruciating.

#2. Provides Non-Invasive Healing

If you waiting too long after an auto accident to seek treatment you may require surgery. The good news is if you get chiropractic care as soon as possible you could likely avoid surgery. Non-invasive chiropractic adjustments realign the spine and joints. As a result, you can experience less pain and start to heal-without the need for surgery.

#3. Reduces Scar Tissue

Following an auto accident, scar tissue can develop in your muscles. Stiffness and discomfort can result. Dr. Brown can target scar tissue that can be broken up faster versus letting it heal on its own.

#4. Reduces Pain Relief & Inflammation Naturally

Following an auto accident, many people elect to take painkillers because they think that will make them better. Although medication can certainly provide relief they just mask the symptoms. Medication doesn’t heal the damage. The other problem is the opioid addiction epidemic in our country. Many people become addicted to these dangerous drugs after being prescribed them for their pain.

Dr. Brown can provide gentle and effective chiropractic adjustments. These can alleviate your pain without any side effects that are associated with medication.

#5. Restores Range of Motion

If you sustain a back or neck injury in a car accident, the inflammation that occurs can result in even more problems. You may find that your movement is restricted.

Getting adjusted, however, will mobilize your spine and restore range of motion. Your body will then be able to begin the natural healing process at a much faster rate.
