If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.

Have you been involved in a car crash recently? The violent impact involved in an accident can cause a lot of damage to tendons, ligaments, muscles, or bones. The most common complaints are back and neck pain, caused by a spinal or whiplash injury. These injuries can lead to chronic pain if you don’t seek proper care right away. Prompt chiropractic care can be crucial to relieving a crash-related injury.

Fortunately, Dr. Steven Wachs and his team at Wachs Chiropractic Health Center in Chula Vista, CA, provide chiropractic treatments designed to relieve your pain symptoms while simultaneously addressing the underlying root cause.

Benefits of Chiropractic treatment after a car crash

The impact of a car accident can lead to abrupt movement of the head and neck causing misalignment in the body’s musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine. Improper alignment of the vertebrae in your spinal column is one of the main causes of pain.

Chiropractic adjustments at Wachs Chiropractic Health Center in Chula Vista, CA, can not only relieve pressure on muscles and nerves, but also bring back alignment to the spine.

Out of the 22 million Americans who visit chiropractors annually, about 35% are seeking relief from back pain of various origins, including accidents, sports injuries, and muscle strains.

A drug-free way to relieve your pain and regain mobility

The opioid epidemic has led the health care system to reconsider the value of drug-free approaches. The American College of Physicians (ACP) guideline cites spinal manipulation as one of the noninvasive, drug-free options for pain treatment.
Chiropractic adjustments such as hands-on spinal manipulation specifically aim to regain proper alignment and mobility, all while promoting healing without surgery or medication.

If you have recently gone through an auto accident and sustained neck and/or back injuries, you may be surprised to find out that chiropractic care can offer a drug-free approach to ease your pain. Neck and back pain after an auto accident is typically a result of whiplash or some kind of spinal injury. Failing to obtain proper treatment for these injuries could have severe consequences for your overall health.

Further, injuries from auto accidents could even result in months or years of chronic or recurring pain. Here at Wachs Chiropractic Health Center in Chula Vista, CA, Dr. Steven Wachs offers chiropractic care for treating injuries caused by auto accidents.

How Chiropractic Care Can Treat Auto Accident Injuries

Using a broad range of chiropractic techniques, including spinal adjustments, rehabilitative/mobility exercises, and electric muscle stimulation, your chiropractor can help with the following:

Alleviate Your Pain

Most soft-tissue injuries typically take a couple of months to completely heal. With chiropractic care, however, you can enjoy relief from your back or neck pain much faster than that. Some patients even report as much as 80% pain reduction following several weeks of regular chiropractic care. Your chiropractor will make specific adjustments to your spine if required and recommend foam roller or massage techniques to address any discomfort or pain you’re feeling.

Restore Your Mobility

Stiffness and soreness from auto accident injuries could seriously restrict your movement. Your chiropractor in Chula Vista, CA, Dr. Steven Wachs, can recommend certain exercises that will help you regain your mobility as quickly as possible so you can restore your full range of motion. This way, you can heal safely and quickly, even before any scar tissue can form.

Support Long-Term and Safe Recovery

It’s immensely vital to note that muscle weakness and related symptoms that are caused by an auto accident could leave you susceptible to reinjury if you don’t receive proper treatment for your injury. With chiropractic care, you’ll be prescribed specific rehabilitative exercises that will help in strengthening your injured muscles and improving their flexibility.

A Very Important Note on Auto Accident Injuries

To help ensure quick and safe rehabilitation, early diagnosis and treatment are very important. The sooner you have your injuries assessed, the sooner you can start proper treatment and be on your way to safe recovery. Likewise, even if you were in a minor auto accident and sustained a seemingly negligible injury, certain injuries can take days or weeks to display symptoms. This means that you should seek professional help as soon as you can after your accident just to be on the safe side.
