An auto accident chiropractor in South Calgary is not usually the first professional you think about when you need medical care after an auto accident. This case is not the best scenario because the NHTSA states that 2.5 million of all 6 million accidents are rear-ended. These accidents cause whiplash injuries, which affect the neck and limit the normal range of motion. Patients are likely to develop the following physical problems:
- Stiffness and pain of the shoulders, neck, and head
- Chronic migraines
- Fatigue and dizziness
- Numbness and tingling of the upper body
- Reduced motion
- Memory problems and blurred vision
Postponing a Calgary whiplash treatment program leads to significant physical issues, which cause long-term issues. The chiropractor is the best defense when battling physical suffering.
Reasons to see a chiropractor after an auto accident.
Heal inflammation and scar tissue.
Accidents can easily cause tears of muscle and ligaments, which cause inflammation. The chiropractor manipulates the spine to bring it back to a natural placement while reducing swelling and pain. The healed spine will restore normal nerve functions and ensure the body heals fast from inflammation.
Scar tissue is the body’s natural response after an injury. Adjusting the spine alleviates discomfort and allows the body to break down injuries fast.
Avoid excess medication
Medical doctors will put you on long-term medication and prescribe exercises and chiropractic care to deal with back injuries and pain. Often, the medicine works best for minimal pains that only last a short time. You will not get any natural healing from medicine and quickly become vulnerable to addictive qualities. Chiropractors do not mask the pain with medication but deal with the root issue causing pain.
Avoid unnecessary invasive treatments.
Medical doctors recommend surgery for conditions that do not respond to medicine. The problem is that they do not always consider alternative options like a Calgary whiplash clinic to eliminate or reduce the amount of surgery needed. Others wait too long before recommending the treatments, hence leave you with only the surgery option. Avoid all complications by getting Chiro Practical professionals to examine and recommend non-invasive treatment solutions.
Heal unseen injuries
Lacerations and broken bones are the more obvious problems that need instant chiropractic care. It will take you days or weeks to feel secondary damages associated with the initial auto injuries. These often include:
The best treatment against pain is adjusting the nervous system to its original function and position. Natural chiropractic care treats various pains with one approach; hence, you experience fast relief from multiple issues.
