Depending on the severity and nature of an auto accident, patients may experience many different injuries. Some of the most common injuries include whiplash, broken bones, concussions, and herniated disks. These injuries may be acute, or they may continue to cause the patient problems long after the accident. Fortunately, many of these injuries will respond to the right treatment.
No one is more qualified to treat non-surgical auto accident injuries than a licensed chiropractor. Chiropractic care can address each of the injuries individually. These treatments can alleviate pain, stiffness, and other symptoms often associated with auto accident injuries. Chiropractic care also encourages the body to heal, and it can be used to strengthen injured areas so that relapse is less likely.
On the first visit after an auto accident, the staff will examine the patient thoroughly to identify all injuries requiring treatment. Once serious injuries, such as those requiring surgery, have been properly addressed, they will create a comprehensive treatment plan designed to treat all of the patient's injuries over time. The staff has extensive training in diagnosing and treating neuromusculoskeletal injuries, and he puts this training to use when working with auto accident victims.
In most cases, a patient's treatment program will combine more than one type of therapy, including chiropractic care, massage, physiotherapy, and trigger point therapy. The staff will monitor the patient's progress throughout treatment. Depending on how the patient responds to therapy, changes to the treatment program may be made. Throughout the process, the staff at Better Chiropractic will also advise patients with regard to steps they can take at home to deal with their injuries and speed up the healing process.
After a patient has been involved in an auto accident, prompt treatment is essential. The sooner the patient visits a chiropractor, the sooner he or she will begin recovery. In addition, seeking treatment promptly may prevent the patient from damaging vulnerable parts of the body more.
