Pain Relief After A Car Accident
Getting into a car accident is not only emotionally stressful, but it has the potential to cause some serious physical pain. Various injuries, such as head trauma, or internal ruptures will obviously require that people pay a visit to the emergency room. Once the noticeable injuries are addressed it’s important to gage your pain elsewhere. Even the most minor car accidents can cause soft tissue injuries that can lead to arthritic issues if left untreated. Sometimes, the pain doesn’t start kicking in until weeks or months after the accident. If you wait too long you may forfeit your right to insurance coverage. To keep yourself and your finances protected it’s a good to idea to seek attention from a chiropractor within two weeks.
After you’ve been in a car accident it’s possible to have limited mobility in certain areas of the body, even if there isn’t any pain. Our Edmond chiropractor is well versed in detecting hidden injuries by testing range of motion, finding out if you have joint pain, feeling for spinal misalignments, and even determining if nerves may be pinched. When the scope of your injuries is revealed a personalized care plan will be developed for you.
These help to restore your spine, hips, arms, legs and neck back to their correct positions. The surrounding muscles and tissue will also be relieved, allowing your bones to naturally heal. Within weeks you can start to see full mobility again and be pain free. If adjustments alone aren’t enough to get you back to feeling great there may be some additional steps our Edmond chiropractor will suggest. Since adjustments by our Edmond chiropractor aren’t the only to relieve pain your personal care plan could also include massages, acupressure and trigger point stimulation.
