How Can Chiropractic Address Auto Accident Injuries?

man with neck pain after an auto accidentIf you have the misfortune of getting involved in an auto accident, you likely will experience pain and lack of proper function of the spinal joints, which means they’re not moving properly and may even be slightly misaligned.

Pain Due to Subluxations

A term we use in chiropractic is subluxation. As sub means “less than,” and luxation “dislocation,” that means when subluxations are caused by an accident, vertebrae above or below are both subluxated. The vertebrae are out of position, and they interfere with the transmission of the nerves in that region. When that interference is present, pain, tingling, numbness, or a lack of function can occur.

Gentle Adjustments & Effective Modalities

We provide gentle, safe chiropractic adjustments of the area to ensure that we can maintain proper function and alignment of the area and of the vertebrae. We also feature the following modalities which can initiate the healing process, but also help the patient feel better:

  • Electric muscle stimulation
  • Hydro heat packs
  • Traction
  • Dry hydrotherapy
