Auto Accident Chiropractor for Santa Clara
Being in an auto accident can be very unnerving as well as hazardous. After a moderate vehicle collision, a person can be in shock and only days later feel the full extent of the injuries they received. Ranging from small bruises and scratches to broken bones and worse, car accidents are one of the leading causes of injury in North America.
Mission Chiropractic is here to help the people of Santa Clara relieve pain and realign the tissues of the body after a car crash. Medication will help you with the pain but it will not aid in ensuring that the muscles will heal properly in the correct alignment without blockages.
Why to See a Chiropractor After a Car Accident
Chiropractors are spine specialists, but their expertise covers many possible issues. Here is a short list of what our chiropractors can do for the people of Santa Clara after an accident.
Reduce Pain: After a traumatic impact the muscles and nerves become damaged. This can cause severe pain as the body attempts to heal itself. By manipulating the muscles and spine, a chiropractor realigns the spine and removes any blockages causing pain.
Reduce Inflammation: Inflammation often happens when micro-tears or strains affect the tissues of the body. It is your body’s way of trying to stabilize and protect the injured area. Chiropractic adjustments have been found to increase anti-inflammatory chemicals in the body to speed up the healing process.
Rehabilitate Motion: A decrease in proper mobility is common after a crash. Professionally performed adjustments increase blood flow to the muscles and ligaments, restoring these systems to offer more complete ranges of motion.
Decrease Scar Tissue: Scar tissue forms both on the skin and in the internal structures of the body. Normally any discomfort can be stretched away over time, but it is a different story when it is the neck or back that is affected. It is not easy to properly stretch these areas as needed and chiros have the expertise to undercut the issues that come from scar tissue.
Avoid Chronic Pain: In recent studies it has been shown that seeking treatment early will help people avoid chronic pain conditions in the future. This is not that surprising as the body often tries to compensate with readjustments after a trauma (think of having a slightly different way of walking after a broken leg or ankle). If not taken care of the body will align muscles and nerves into positions that will eventually lead to a chronic pain condition. Seeing a chiropractor after your automobile accident is the best way to prevent pain in your future.
