If you are suffering from an injury or pain after a car accident, it is important to have a College Park chiropractor evaluate your condition to diagnose potential underlying conditions. Even minor accidents that take place under 30 miles per hour (mph) can cause tissue damage and other injuries that do not produce immediate symptoms. Without a complete examination from a chiropractor at AICA College Park, common accident injuries like whiplash can cause chronic pain and permanent damage.
Pushing the spine out of its natural position as a result of a car accident can create significant neck strain and stiffness. Traditional forms of medicine often rely on pain killers to treat the symptoms associated with tissue damage, although they do not produce permanent results.
The chiropractors at AICA College Park offer holistic treatment techniques that address the source of an injury by alleviating tension on the affected tendons, nerves, and muscles. Realigning portions of the vertebrae, when complemented with corrective therapy, helps repair the damage connected to the musculoskeletal system. By correcting the source of each patient’s accident injury, our chiropractors can ensure long-lasting results, while also preventing potential relapses from occurring.
There are a variety of techniques used to treat car accident injuries and their associated symptoms. Chiropractic adjustments are safe and useful for reducing inflammation, as well as stimulating blood flow. When your body can transfer oxygen rich blood to damaged tissue at a healthy rate, your ability to recover increases exponentially. Adjustments are one of the most common techniques used by chiropractors and are safe to use on everyone, regardless of age.
Depending on the characteristics of the injury, stabilization exercises and physical therapy may be recommended to complement the value of your adjustments. If your chiropractor is unable to identify the source of your injury, they may recommend the use of an imaging device like an X-ray or MRI. Using this kind of technology allows us to develop a comprehensive view of your condition, as well as develop the most appropriate treatment plan for your needs.
