Hi, guys. This is Marco Abanico with Chiropractic Television.

Today, I’d like to talk about how chiropractic care can speed up recovery in an auto accident.

Many people are involved in auto accidents every day and every year. While the majority of car wrecks are minor, it is very common for those involved to suffer some type of injury. Visiting a chiropractor after you have been in an accident is a smart move to make. Chiropractors are very skilled at treating back injuries, whiplash and neck injuries, injured or damaged muscles and soft tissues, and more, resulting from an auto accident.

On the road to recovery, the first step is realizing that a chiropractor can provide treatment for auto accident injuries. It has been shown that chiropractic care can speed up auto accident recovery. Not only can a chiropractor decrease your recovery time, but he can also help reduce any pain and discomfort your injuries may be causing you. See a chiropractor right away following your accident, so that he can put you on a plan for treatment and recovery. The sooner you see a chiropractor, the sooner your road to full recovery will begin.

Injuries can occur in minor auto accidents and “fender benders”

For many years now research and studies have been conducted to show that injuries can occur even in minor or “low impact” automobile accidents. Neck injuries (like whiplash) are the most common. Whiplash has been shown to occur in tests, where the sudden change in speed was only 2.5 miles per hour. This means that it is possible to suffer whiplash with any sudden stop and not even realize it.

Safety technology on cars is constantly progressing. Cars and their bumpers are built to withstand and disperse impact in the event of a collision. The human body, however, was not designed to withstand and disperse impact and jolts at typical driving speeds. In fact, if most cars were to wreck while idling forward, it would be at a speed greater than the human body was built to handle.

Impact is absorbed

When an automobile experiences an impacting force, then the force and energy from that impact is absorbed by the entire vehicle, as well as by any occupants inside. When cars absorb impact, they experience damage. When the human body absorbs impact, it experiences damage as well. This damage usually consists of neck, back, and spinal injuries. It is also very common for auto accident injuries to be deeper and non-superficial. Internal injuries to soft tissues and muscles will many times heal as scar tissue, which can lead to problems and pain even years after an accident. Spinal damage can lead to issues, such as neck pain, headaches, chronic muscle tension, stiffness, lower back pain, muscle spasms, spinal disc degeneration, and more.

Speed up auto accident recovery

To help speed up your recovery from injuries sustained in an automobile accident, visit a chiropractor. A chiropractor will put you on a treatment plan, which will speed your recovery time, reduce your pain, and prevent a potential lifetime of suffering. Chiropractors are well trained and skilled in helping people heal following auto accidents. Visiting a chiropractor may not be the only treatment you need after you have been in a wreck, but it should certainly be one of the treatments you receive on your road to a full recovery.
