HEALING AFTER YOUR CAR ACCIDENT
After a car accident, it is a common assumption that the pain will go away on its own. Seeing a chiropractor after your auto accident can be helpful for several reasons.
A licensed chiropractor can help you determine the root cause of your pain and provide appropriate treatment options (and referral to other providers if necessary). After an accident or injury of any type, our goal is always to help you live in your body with more ease, comfort, and awareness. Because your body should always feel like home.
Healing is not a linear process. Pain and discomfort may occur immediately after your accident, or may show up hours, days, or even weeks later. Your nervous system is designed to learn and adapt from the physical, chemical, and emotional stresses of life. When your body’s capacity to handle this stress is overwhelmed, the system begins to store stress. Even before symptoms like pain, tension, and discomfort show up, your body has already begun to compromise its structure and function.
Musculoskeletal complaints such as neck tension, headaches, whiplash, tingling and numbness, rib discomfort, low back pain, sciatica, strains, and sprains are common after car accidents. Gentle, specific chiropractic adjustments, massage and soft tissue techniques, craniosacral therapy, and nutritional support help restore your normal physiology, support neurological adaptation, and unleash the healing power within your own body.
Chiropractors are trained to listen to the body. When we don’t listen, our body tends to get louder, sometimes screaming its message. For you, this symptomatology might look like pain, soreness, tension, anxiety, a bad mood, or lack of energy. In your child, it might be discomfort, crying, irritability, or changes in sleep or eating habits. Chiropractic care offers you a moment of pause, a gentle reset of your nervous system, and the awareness to hear and really listen to your body.
