Chiropractic Care for Car Accidents
Winter road conditions in Minnesota can be hazardous, and car accidents are all too often a common occurrence. The physical effects on the body can include whiplash, sprains and strains, and other aches and pains. Fortunately, chiropractic care is a great option for post-accident treatment, and is available right here in Shakopee!
Chiropractic care provides natural pain relief without the use of drugs or surgery, and is typically much more cost effective than traditional medical treatment routes. Adjustments release pain-relieving hormones called endorphins into the body. This is a much more natural form of pain relief than drugs that can easily become addictive.
After an accident, your chiropractor will perform a detailed examination to detect any muscle, joint, or nervous system dysfunction. A referral for x-rays or other imaging will be utilized as needed. A typical plan of care will include adjustments, therapies such as decompression or electric muscle stim, and massage. When an injury occurs, it is common for inflammation and scar tissue to build up in the body. The combination of these treatments will help to restore range of motion, and reduce inflammation and stiffness.
It’s important to get your body on the right path to healing as soon as possible after being injured in a car accident in order to avoid long-term effects. Call today to see how we can help!
