Any kind of personal injury can leave a lasting imbalance and incoordination in your body. Car accidents, in particular, can be severely debilitating. The problem with car accidents is that even if you survive with no more than a bruise, the sudden force of impact and the shearing traction results in a whiplash injury that meddles with the perfect alignment of the spine. As a result, many people with car accidents have lasting neck and back pain which can be very bothersome.
Such injuries need time and proper realignment to heal, something that pharmaceutical medicines can't provide. We are not against the use of medicines, however, for a personal injury like this, medicines do little more than numb the pain. As long as the misalignment persists, the pain will keep coming back. Hence, a better solution, like Chiropractic, to treat the cause of the pain rather than simply decrease its perception is a much better option.
What is Chiropractic?
One of the first things you should do after a car accident is, visit a chiropractor. Chiropractors are able to manipulate bones and ligaments and excel at treating neck pain, back pain, whiplash and soft tissue injuries, which are some of the most common kinds of injuries in a car accident. Other than this, whiplash injury is often associated with discomfort.
It can also result in dizziness, blurred vision, shoulder pain and arm pain, which may seem unrelated at first, but are actually due to the sudden disruptive force that traumatized the spine as well as the surrounding structures. Furthermore, simple soreness or stiffness after a whiplash injury may seem minor at first, but it could be the forerunner of serious problems.
Chiropractic attempts to correct the alignment and the placement of the bones in relation to each other and the soft tissues. It is based on medical knowledge of the anatomy of the body and ancient maneuvers that have proven to be effective. Visiting a chiropractor immediately after such an injury allows him to correct the problem as soon as possible, which sets your body on the path to full recovery as soon as possible.
