Auto Accident Treatment in Santa Clara & San Jose
Were you involved in an automobile accident recently? If so, it may be a good idea to visit a chiropractor. Whether you are experiencing pain from an injury or you’re not sure yet if you were even injured, chiropractic care is a popular choice for treatment after an auto accident.
Why Should I See A Chiropractor After An Accident?
There are a few reasons you may want to seek chiropractic treatment after an accident:
- Injuries can be discovered. When you’re involved in a car accident, it tends to raise your adrenaline, and you may not feel any pain or stiffness from injuries until hours, or even days later. A chiropractor can examine your spine to determine if any vertebrae are out of alignment, or uncover any damage from whiplash. The sooner you can find issues and begin treatment, the better your chances of living without pain.
- Chiropractic care is not invasive. Instead of skipping straight to an expensive surgery that could put you in recovery for months, a chiropractor may be able to relieve your problems with some adjustments, exercises, and physiotherapy.
- It’s a drug-free option. Painkillers can give you temporary relief, but may put you in a fog or force you to sleep your days away. Chiropractic treatments might give you relief for longer periods of time and allow you to be active, instead of causing you to miss out on everything.
What Treatments Are Used After An Auto Accident?
Treatment after an auto accident is generally a mix of chiropractic care, physiotherapy, and massage. The goal is to relieve pain and stiffness, keep you mobile, and try to avoid any chronic pain that can stem from whiplash or other potential injuries.
