Automobile Accident Recovery Plans in Delaware, OH
Being involved in a car accident is a scary and traumatic experience emotionally; it’s physically traumatic, as well, even if you were not hospitalized or sustained external wounds. It is important to know how to proceed with treating your injuries, especially the internal ones you may not immediately see or notice. Our chiropractic team can help address whiplash effects, neck and back pain, loss of range of motion, and more; in addition, we can also help prevent more subtle and possibly longer-term side effects that are deep within the muscles and spine.
Four Ways Chiropractic Care Can Aid Recovery
First, chiropractic care can reduce pain throughout the entire body. Even for patients who have not been injured but visit us because they regularly sit at a desk or perform physical labor, chiropractic care builds up strength and restores the range of motion. After an accident, relieving and avoiding further pain and injury is the perfect reason to immediately start a chiropractic treatment plan.
Second, chiropractic care can improve or restore the range of motion in your neck or back after a car accident. Immediately after an impact, internal inflammation can prevent movement, but if left untreated, a victim may never regain full movement.
Third, chiropractic treatment can reduce scar tissue that would otherwise form and harden inside the body due to internal injuries caused by a crash. Muscle can develop scar tissue just like our skin can, so it may cause stiffness or discomfort for some time until it heals. With chiropractic movement and adjustment tailored to specific areas of trauma, scar tissue will dissolve faster to speed healing.
Fourth, chiropractic adjustments reduce inflammation. Similar to the range-of-motion benefit from our therapeutic services, inflammation internally due to impact and injury isn’t always visible, but if left untreated, it can result in very real symptoms. When microscopic tears in the muscle fibers are irritated, they can cause severe pain. Chiropractic treatment carefully moves these muscles to prevent the tears from healing improperly and causing long-term discomfort after the initial recovery period.
