If you’re feeling neck, back, joint, or muscle pain due to an auto accident, you could be suffering from a musculoskeletal injury. A visit to your Sacramento chiropractor can determine the source and severity of your injury so you can get treatment. These FAQs from The Healing Touch Chiropractic explain more about musculoskeletal injuries and how chiropractic care can help with treatment.
Why should I see a chiropractor after an auto accident?
Even if you saw your physician, you can benefit from a visit to our Sacramento chiropractor for treatment of musculoskeletal injuries. Doctors generally prescribe pain medications for relief of muscle, joint, neck, or back pain due to a musculoskeletal auto injury. In contrast, our chiropractor will treat your pain and the source of your pain to promote natural healing of your injury. The sooner you get a diagnosis for your musculoskeletal injury, the sooner you can get treatment to put you on the road to recovery.
What types of auto injuries do chiropractors treat?
Our chiropractor can treat a wide range of musculoskeletal auto injuries to include whiplash, neck pain, back pain, headache, migraine, herniated disc, pinched nerves, dislocated bones and joints, dashboard knee, and more.
What can I expect from my initial chiropractic visit?
On your initial visit to our clinic, we’ll go over your medical history to become familiar with your health and past treatments. Then we’ll perform a physical exam to diagnose your injury. We’ll go over your symptoms and test your range of motion and flexibility to see how the accident affected your mobility. This information helps us determine a course of action for your treatment.
What does chiropractic pain relief treatment entail?
We customize all our treatment plans to suit our customers’ individual healthcare needs. Through chiropractic care, we strive to relieve pain and inflammation, treat imbalances in your skeletal system, restore body function and help you heal from your injury. Chiropractic adjustments and spinal manipulation are used to realign structures that were jolted out of place due to the impact of your accident. Realigning your system reduces pain and inflammation so your body can heal.
Massage therapy is used to ease tense muscles, relieve muscle spasms, and circulate blood to injured areas to expedite your healing. We’ll also teach you corrective exercises that will help strengthen your muscles and joints and restore your range of motion and flexibility.
