After an auto accident, it's common to have sustained bodily injuries such as whiplash, fractures, broken bones, or soft tissue damage. It may be time to seek chiropractic care. At Chiro Idaho Chiropractic in Meridian, ID, we provide a variety of treatments to give your body the best chance to heal completely, with as few long-term effects as possible; to alleviate the pain you are experiencing, and to improve your overall health.
Common Injuries After an Auto Accident
A car accident can lead to a variety of injuries. Common injuries include scrapes, bruises, cuts, head injuries, shoulder dislocation, bone fractures, burns, and internal organ damage. Whiplash may be the most common type of injury since the nature of a collision often involves the abrupt jerking of the cervical spine. Some injuries will show up immediately after a car crash, while other injuries may not become fully apparent for several days after the accident.
Chiropractic Care for Car Accident Injuries
If an auto accident injury is impacting your body's ability to function, then it's appropriate to seek care from a licensed chiropractor for care. You should also seek care if you are experiencing ongoing aches and pains from an injury. In the field of chiropractic care, we provide injury treatment in the form of physical therapy, chiropractic adjustment, spinal decompression, and soft tissue therapy in the form of deep tissue laser therapy. These treatments offer specialized techniques that are meant to relieve your pain, restore your mobility, and improve your body’s natural ability to repair itself.
How Physical Therapy Can Help
Physical therapy is especially useful in treating auto accident injuries. This form of therapy utilizes corrective exercise, soft-tissue therapy, and movement to restore function to the muscles, joints, and bones of your body. Some physical therapy requires special equipment and technology for treatment, while other forms of this therapy just need simple stretches and exercises to achieve rehabilitation. We will assess your condition before creating a physical therapy plan tailored that can offer pain relief.
