Auto Injury Treatment - Benefits of Chiropractic Care After a Car Accident
Car accidents can happen to anyone. In fact, 20 to 50 million people are injured or disabled each year around the world due to accidents involving automobiles.
If you’ve been in an accident, chances are, you may be experiencing residual pain.
Whiplash, or the back-and-forth motion of a person’s head and neck that often accompanies a car crash, can be the cause of long-term chronic neck pain. Other common injuries include muscle sprains and strains, back and shoulder issues, and even herniated disks.
If you think you may be suffering from any of these injuries, you need to seek treatment as quickly as possible. The sooner you get treated, the faster your body will respond and heal.
Choosing Chiropractic for Auto Injury Treatment
Some people choose to forego auto injury treatment because they are afraid of becoming dependent upon painkillers, both over-the-counter and prescription types. And with more than 20,000 deaths attributed to opioid painkillers in the United States, it’s a valid concern.
Luckily, chiropractic care is safe, non-invasive, effective, and drug-free. Chiropractic treatment, which involves manipulating the spine to realign your vertebrae, is found to be as effective as medication for treatment of neck pain.
Most chiropractors can coordinate with traditional health-care providers, and chiropractic care is almost always covered under your standard health insurance policy, so it’s easy to get seen.
Chiropractors who work with a lot of auto injuries can also advocate for you in the case a legal determination of your injury must be assessed.
