Auto Accident Chiropractic in McKinney and Albuquerque

Holding a spine modelInjuries from car accidents can be very challenging. This is why seeing a Albuquerque chiropractor immediately after the accident is important. Injuries from car accidents may not be apparent until days after the accident has taken place. Therefore, people often make the mistake of not seeking treatment after they have been in an accident because they feel ok.

Your body might not experience pain immediately. In other words, the shock and adrenaline rush after an accident may numb your senses. Therefore, preventing you from feeling any pain. Leaving car accident injuries untreated may lead to more serious and painful injuries. In addition, this can cost you more time and expense with dangerous spine surgeries if left untreated.

What Happens During a Car Accident?

When several tons of metal collide in a car accident, the human body absorbs most of the impact. This trauma can cause soft tissue injury. In addition, it can cause permanent shifts in your spine that can cause severe long-term injury. However, the problems do not stop there. Decreased nerve function from an auto accident can lead to health issues that can last decades if not corrected.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Car Accident Injuries

Chiropractic is an effective treatment for car accident injuries. This is because we realign your body to help fix the problem. Our goal with every person we see is to improve health from the inside out. In addition, this helps avoid long-term pain.

  • Non-Obvious Injuries: Whiplash does not always cause pain immediately after a car accident. It sometimes takes days to feel the symptoms of whiplash. In addition, problems like headaches, soreness, dizziness, and pain in the upper back and neck can begin. Therefore, seeing us immediately after your car accident helps us properly diagnose your injuries before the pain worsens.
  • Drug-Free Pain Relief: Pain relief drug medications can be extremely addictive. While medications help reduce the pain, medication does not treat or get to the cause of pain. Chiropractic care offers relief from pain without the need for any addictive drugs or medications. Adjustments heal the body from within.
  • Reduces Inflammation: Chiropractic adjustments relieve pressure on the nervous system. As a result, your body releases anti-inflammatory substances, which reduce inflammation and alleviate pain.
  • Restores Range of Motion: Chiropractic adjustments can help mobilize your spine and restore range of motion.
