Even minor auto accidents can cause lasting damage to your muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and spinal column. If you do not have the skeletal misalignments and other damage repaired, your body could heal incorrectly, leading to a lifetime of pain and discomfort. Luckily, you have the best chance at a full recovery by receiving auto accident injury treatments for pain relief from a chiropractor. Comprehensive chiropractic treatments help release tense muscles, align your skeletal system and strengthen your body.
Tight Muscle Release
Chiropractors identify muscles injured during the auto accident and use manual release techniques to loosen the tight fibers. The muscle release techniques involve minute chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy. You may need the muscle release procedure performed at every appointment to relieve ongoing pain and discomfort.
As your body heals, different muscle groups will tighten up in response to compensated movements or pressure from adjacent bodily structures. Your chiropractor will perform a simple evaluation at each appointment to determine which muscles require release for instant pain relief.
Chiropractic adjustments keep pain levels low by maneuvering joints and bones back into alignment. The misalignments cause pressure on the muscles, ligaments and tendons, which increases pain caused by the car accident injuries. Gentle alignments can also bring the discs in your spinal column back into place to prevent rupture or other distressing complications.
You will need adjustments performed throughout the healing process to facilitate proper recovery of the damaged structures. If your skeletal system remains out of alignment while healing, you could be left with lingering pain and stiffness. You can continue receiving chiropractic adjustments after recovering from your injuries to keep your skeletal system healthy and pain free.
To help your body recover as quickly as possible from auto accident injuries, your chiropractor will create a therapeutic exercise program just for you. The exercises will help you regain range of motion and mobility lost due to pain and stiffness from your injuries. Furthermore, the custom therapeutic exercise sessions improve muscle strength and endurance to help retain the benefits gained during your chiropractic care appointments.
You may need to complete the exercises in the office and at home to quickly and efficiently work toward a full recovery. Your chiropractor may occasionally switch out the exercises in your custom program as your body heals from the crash injuries.
If you were involved in an auto accident, schedule a prompt evaluation with our chiropractor at Campbell Chiropractic in Castle Rock. Dr. Cory Campbell will perform a full exam and take diagnostic images to determine the location and extent of your injuries. Upon identifying a diagnosis, you will work with the doctor to establish a treatment plan that will provide pain relief and facilitate a full recovery. After recovery, continue chiropractic care to strengthen your body and prevent injury recurrence.
