Auto Accident Injury

Auto Accident Injury

Auto accidents can be one of the most terrifying experiences that a person will ever go through. Dealing with the aftermath, however, can be incredibly nerve-racking. If you've experienced an injury in an auto accident, odds are good you didn't have a lot of choice on where to get treatment immediately after the accident. Once your immediate wounds are taken care of, the best many medical clinics and hospitals can do is prescribe pain killers for any lingering symptoms.

The chiropractors at Way of Life Wellness Center in Issaquah, WA, are here to help you find natural pain relief after an accident. Read on to learn more.

How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

Chiropractic care takes a different approach than traditional medicine. Instead of just masking the pain signals that your nerves are sending to your brain with medication, chiropractic care can directly deal with the underlying issue that is causing your nerves to send pain signals.

During an auto accident, a human body absorbs a lot of force. That force can move the muscles in the body out of their proper positions, causing muscles strains and sprains. These muscles become inflamed and start to swell, putting some pressure on surrounding tissues and nerves. This pressure will cause these tissues and other muscles to move out of place. Eventually, an entire area will be in pain, making it difficult for most medical professionals to determine where the problem is.

A chiropractor solves this problem by working to reduce inflammation and swelling in the muscles in this area. As this happens, the swelling goes down, creating less pressure on the surrounding nerves. This reduces the amount of pain that a person feels.

Over a series of treatments for an auto accident injury, the patient will gradually notice their overall level of pain decreasing. This will occur as the swelling in the muscles goes down. Depending on the severity of the injury, the entire process could take anywhere from several weeks to several months. Appointments will be made anywhere from twice a week to twice a month during this time.

Once a patient is to a point where they are no longer experiencing pain, it's generally recommended that a patient schedule once a month visits. These appointments will ensure that the muscles continue to stay in their proper positions and allow the chiropractor to make minor adjustments if needed.
