Auto Accident Injury
How Chiropractic Treatment Can Relieve Your Pain
Even a minor automobile accident can have major effects on your health.
When one car collides with another, thousands of pounds of pressure are exerted on the neck and spine. Whiplash can occur at surprisingly slow speeds and is the result of the head and neck being thrown or “snapped” back and forth very quickly.
Receiving chiropractic care after an accident can make the difference between complete recovery and lingering pain and disability which can last years after the accident.
Health Benefits Provided By Chiropractic Care
Even though chiropractic care is a non-invasive treatment, this type of treatment has proven to be very effective at providing a wide range of benefits relating to many injuries around the shoulder and within the shoulder girdle. The reduction of pain and discomfort is the most obvious benefit that will invariably occur if you’re found to be a good candidate for chiropractic care.
By directly addressing the cause of the pain, you should begin to experience some pain relief even after a single treatment session. Decreased inflammation should also occur. Many injuries to the shoulder result in swelling and inflammation, the presence of which typically causes pain to worsen. The reduction of swelling in your shoulder should lessen your discomfort. Other health benefits to look forward to include improved flexibility, enhanced range of motion, and better muscle tone and strength in the treated area.
