Auto Accident Injuries

Auto Accident Injury Treatment from Our San Antonio Chiropractor

Woman recently just got in a car crash and is experiencing pain. She should seek chiropractic treatment immediately.

Getting into a car accident can be traumatic for you, both mentally and physically. Our San Antonio chiropractor can help with the aches and pains you may feel after such an experience. Auto accident injury treatment varies depending on the type of injury you sustain, but we have multiple options for relieving your pain and helping you heal.

Common Types of Auto Accident Injuries

While you can injure just about any part of your body in an auto accident, some types of injuries are more common than others. Many types of auto accident injuries are caused by the sudden application of force to the body that occurs when a car comes to a sudden stop. This can cause soft tissue damage as well as misalignment of joints:

  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Pulled muscles
  • Whiplash
  • Misaligned joints
  • Deep bruising

Some of these injuries can cause long-term pain if you do not receive proper auto accident injury treatment. Luckily, chiropractic care can help mitigate these problems and make them more manageable without drugs or surgery. We believe that truly effective treatment involves the whole person and is aimed at healing the source of the problem rather than just covering it up. Chiropractic care helps you achieve true recovery through the use of holistic healthcare techniques.

Types of Chiropractic Care Used for Auto Accident Injuries

Depending on the type of injury involved, there are a number of effective chiropractic treatments:

  • Spinal decompression therapy
  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Passive care such as icing and heating
  • Active care such as exercises
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Massage
  • Nutrition

Chiropractic care such as spinal decompression therapy works to remove pressure from the spine, relieving pain from bulging or herniated discs. Other misalignments of joints can cause muscle strain from the body trying to compensate or sprains and strains caused by overstretching ligaments and tendons. Chiropractic adjustments can put joints back in their proper place and provide relief for the surrounding tissues.

Passive care such as ice and heat can help relieve pain and also reduce inflammation or improve blood flow in the area. Active care includes exercises that our chiropractor may prescribe for stretching and strengthening. Treatments such as cold laser therapy penetrate painlessly through the skin to trigger biochemical cascades that promote healing in the area. Massage helps tight muscles relax to provide long-lasting pain relief. Nutrition is an important component of health in general, and after an injury, it is especially important to provide your body with the nutrients that it needs to heal.
