This care will start with a comprehensive examination of your spine. Problems like whiplash or subluxations will be checked for. Whiplash causing joint dysfunction in the neck that makes it painful and difficult to turn the head. Subluxations are areas of the spine that are poorly aligned. These can cause pinched nerves, muscle stress and a host of other issues.
Your provider will then piece together a plan for resolving the injuries that have developed. Each patient is given individualized care in order to best meet his or her own needs. Your plan can include manual adjustments for realigning the spine, massage therapy, inversion therapy, ultrasound and more.
Therapy in these environments is a gradual process. Improvements are made with each office visit. Over time, you will have less pain, greater mobility and marked improvements in how you feel overall.
This type of care is all-natural and the relief it provides is considerable. It is also intended to expedite natural healing processes. Correcting spinal alignment issues bolsters the functionality and well-being of the nervous system while alleviating spinal pressure. Recovery times can be reduced and people can have a far lesser reliance on pain medications, whether prescribed or store-bought.
Working with these professionals is also a great way to improve your life habits. As an example, you can improve your posture or strengthen your abdominal muscles for increased spinal protection and support. The healthy lifestyle habits that you implement will make it easier to maintain the results that you achieve in the chiropractic environment even after your car accident injuries have healed.
