If you’re one of the millions of Americans who will be in an automobile accident this year, there’s a good chance there might be an injury involved. Research shows that half of those involved in an accident report an injury afterward.
It’s important to know your treatment options for automobile accident injuries so you can experience a swift and smooth recovery. For many people, chiropractic care is an important part of recovery.
Why you need chiropractic care after an auto accident
- Doctors of chiropractic can treat pain without medication — People often rely on pain medication to deal with injuries caused by auto accidents. These medications can cause undesirable side effects and addiction. Doctors of chiropractic can help reduce your pain so you rely less on medication.
- Doctors of chiropractic reduce the need for surgery — At the Florida Spine and Joint Institute, we specialize in many surgical procedures to treat injuries like those from auto accidents. However, we understand that surgery is not the first choice on everyone’s list for treatment. Fortunately, doctors of chiropractic can treat some injuries that would otherwise require surgery.
- Doctors of chiropractic help prevent future pain — Regardless of whether surgery and medication are necessary, chiropractic care can help prevent future pain after your injury. Some injuries affect the alignment of your spine and joints. Chiropractic adjustments can correct these alignment issues so you don’t have further problems down the road.
- Doctors of chiropractic can reduce the severity of headaches — Conditions that put strain on the nerves running to your brain, like whiplash, can cause frequent and long-lasting headaches. A doctor of chiropractic can reduce pain and tension in the neck to help reduce the severity and frequency of head pain.
