Chiropractic Care for an Auto Accident Injury
Just about everyone who drives or rides in cars daily will wind up in an accident sooner or later. We at Advantage Spine and Disc in Boise, ID, offers noninvasive auto accident injury treatments. A licensed chiropractor from our practice can help enhance healing with treatments that harness your body’s natural healing powers while also relieving pain.
Painful Nature of Auto Accident Injury Symptoms
An auto accident injury often requires time to heal properly. While healing, the accident victim often experienced a lot of pain. Much of that pain is caused by inflammation and swelling that puts extreme pressure on joints, nerves, and spinal discs. Many types of chiropractic treatments could help to alleviate the pain while encouraging your body’s natural healing processes to get to work.
Effective treatment for Whiplash and Common Accident Injuries
Whiplash is a good example. Whiplash usually occurs when struck violently from behind or the side. It is very common among car accident survivors and could affect many athletes who play in violent sports, like football or rugby.
Whiplash refers to the whip-like action that the neck undergoes when struck violently. The neck can whip around from the energy delivered by a hard blow – like what happens during a car accident. The soft tissue and spinal discs in the neck can become swollen and cause extreme pain.
Our chiropractors, including Dr. Ricks, can provide patients with a variety of non-invasive treatments that relieve the swelling and resulting pain.
Common Auto Accident Injury Treatments
Many auto accident survivors could benefit from the variety of chiropractic services. Spinal decompression takes the pressure off injured discs that cause extreme back pain. Upper back injuries may benefit from massage therapy, electro-stimulation, and ultrasound. And spinal manipulation and adjustments could help to take pressure off the spine and spinal discs.
A chiropractor from our practice can work with medical doctors to provide patients with a full range of healing services. Our treatments and therapies complement the medical to give your body its best chance at a full recovery from accidental injuries.
