Deciding When to See an Accident and Injury Chiropractor
There is never an ideal time to experience an automobile accident. When you find yourself in that position time stands still, if only for a moment. And then life continues, at the busy pre-accident pace. Our bodies, after an accident, however, may not be able to resume the busy pace life demands. As the winter settles in we see a significant increase in the amount of car accidents. We also notice a greater need for treatment for an injury or flaring physical issues. If you find yourself post-accident and are asking yourself if you should receive chiropractic care, the answer is yes. Even if your level of discomfort is low, and initially manageable, it has been discovered that a small injury can create big problems left untreated.
When a body experiences injury from impact and any part of your physical systems are out of alignment your body will make accommodations in support of the ailing area effected by the injury. These micro-accommodations can result in collateral discomfort. Sore muscles, nerve agitation, and overall a lower quality of physical ability. The treatment plans at A Family Chiropractic Clinic are comprehensive and sensitive to the needs of the patient. We are always treating within your comfort zone and often meeting individuals who have left their injuries untreated for too long right where they are in their healing process to bring them to a better quality of daily life and resuming desired activity levels.
Post-Accident Injuries and Issues: Treatment and how to heal
An automobile accident is the most common reason to call to schedule a new injury office visit. However, there are also some other reasons to consider seeing a chiropractor during those chilly winter months. If you’re questioning if chiropractic care is the right for your injury, pain, discomfort or ailments consider some of the following information:
- When proper chiropractic care is established after a car accident you will have better overall results. Decreased pain, increased mobility and a return to functioning. It is not uncommon for individuals to go days or weeks after a car accident believing they are without injury only to wake up one day to new or unusual pain resulting from the accident. Selecting chiropractic care immediately after a car accident allows for a skilled medical professional to support you from impact, to recognized injury, through healing, and back into normalcy and full functioning.
- Winter is hard on our human bodies! The cold can cause pain and stiffness that leads to unexpected pain. During winter we see more muscle strains and fall injuries. Chiropractic care can and should be utilized for top physical maintenance as well. Get ahead of the biting cold ailments and prevent muscle weakness so your body responds well through the increased stress of the elements. Chiropractic care also offers core rehabilitation which assists in having a stronger sense of balance. Balance is important when it comes to reducing your risk for fall injury or strain.
