Has a car accident left you with pain and musculoskeletal injuries?
We know how scary a car accident can be, and it can be even scarier when you end up dealing with pain and other problems as a result. If you are dealing with whiplash, back pain or other injuries our Tampa, FL, chiropractors Dr. George Kollias, Dr. Autumn Scaz, and Dr. Elissa Pally can help you recover faster. Here are the benefits of undergoing chiropractic treatment after an auto accident,
It’s common for a person in a car accident to sustain certain microtears in muscles or other soft tissue that may not be caught on a standard x-ray. If you wake up feeling sore the next day after a car accident you can blame these microtears and inflammation. A chiropractor can help realign the spine to trigger the body’s natural healing response, which can reduce inflammation to help your body mend the injured soft tissue quickly and naturally.
Symptoms don’t always appear right away after a car accident. It can take several hours or even days for neck and back pain, dizziness, nausea, soreness and stiffness to kick in. If you are dealing with whiplash (an injury that results in neck pain and limited mobility) it’s important that you see a chiropractor right away to avoid chronic pain.
One of the major benefits of chiropractic treatment is that it provides an effective pain management through regular spinal manipulation and other therapeutic techniques that are designed to promote better blood flow, reduce inflammation, restore mobility and speed up healing.
