Auto Injury Treatment: Why Should You Choose Chiropractic Care?

Written By Smith Chiropractic on April 30, 2018

Been involved in a car accident? Experiencing pains in your legs, feet, neck, or back? Finding your vision is going blurry and you’re feeling dizzy?

You may think these aches and pains will go away on their own over time, but in the majority of cases auto injuries cannot be simply “walked off.”

It’s time you sought an effective auto injury treatment – chiropractic care.

Why is Chiropractor Care an Effective Auto Injury Treatment? 

According to one study, when people have been involved in a motor vehicle accident (MVA), chiropractic care treats 40% of those who are suffering with pain in their lower back and almost a third of those who are experiencing pain in their spine. 

But that’s not all. 

Research also demonstrates that when patients undergo chiropractic treatments for whiplash, 93% note improved symptoms

These statistics aren’t merely “coincidence.” Rather, they highlight how beneficial chiropractic is as an auto injury treatment. Your spine is placed in a very vulnerable position when you’re involved in a collision, and with it being at the heart of your day-to-day activities and overall anatomy, getting it treated quickly and efficiently is imperative. 

Therefore, even if you’re not feeling any detrimental effects following your MVA, it’s worth booking an appointment with your chiropractor in Colorado Springs just to be on the safe side. 

What Can You Expect from Chiropractic Care? 

Even though a chiropractor is a specialist when it comes to your spine and all of the interconnecting muscles and tissues, did you know they’re also able to provide you with a qualified diagnosis for any issue relating to your back?

That’s why, before they start doing any treatments, they’ll conduct a thorough physical examination to establish what’s causing your pain. Once pinpointed, they’ll put together a tailored treatment plan that’s targeted at alleviating your pain and improving your mobility. 

Following an MVA, they may want to realign your spine. To do this, they’ll massage the area to relax your muscles before using their hands to apply gentle pressure to your spine. This encourages your bones to move back into their original position. 

Although you may need to return for several treatments throughout this treatment plan, most will notice immediate relief, even after their very first visit. And to help hurry along your recovery, your chiropractor will give you some at-home exercises you can do.
