Denver Chiropractors of Mountain View Pain Center talk about car accident realated injuries and how they can develop into other injuries down the road. Even “fender-benders” can cause hidden injuries that can develop into pain, headaches, and arthritis. Studies have shown that impact as slow as 5 mph can cause whiplash, which can have damaging long term effects on your spine.
Most doctors will give pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs to hide these injuries. Our approach to these types of injuries is to use specific chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy to help return your spinal function. After a thorough case history and examination, the doctor will recommend any necessary care to help restore proper motion and position of spinal bones. If caught early enough, inflammation can be reduced and scar tissue that leaves muscles weaker, less elastic, and prone to re-injury can often be minimized.
It is important to get your spine examined by a Doctor of Chiropractic immediately. Mountain View Pain Center works with most auto accident insurances and with personal injury attorneys.
The physical and psychological damage of car accidents can affect many activities you may do on a daily basis. Chiropractic techniques and skills are proven to relieve the associated neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, mid back pain, numbness/ tingling, low back pain, and other destructive effects of a whiplash injury. Chiropractic and Physical Therapy can help:
- Reduce pain, inflammation, muscle spasms, and scar tissue
- Speed healing and recovery
- Increase range of motion, flexibility, and strength
- Strengthen and enhance muscle function and tone
- Restore proper spinal movement
- Improve your overall quality of life
Seemingly minor, low-impact forces can result in severe chronic injuries. These injuries often times do not appear immediately. Symptoms of neck pain, shoulder pain, and back pain can take days or even weeks after an auto accident before a victim notices.
Seeing your Doctor of Chiropractic for an exam, even if the accident was minor, can have a huge impact on your health and well-being. Research shows chiropractic treatments have been effective for thousands of auto accident victims. The Doctors at Mountain View Pain Center can help significantly ease patients symptoms and allow them to return to their normal activities.
