Recovery From Auto Injuries
Getting into a car accident can be one of the scariest scenarios you face. If this has just happened to you one of the next calls you should make, after your doctor and insurance company (of course!), is to our Federal Way, WA chiropractic office.
Even if you don’t feel any symptoms right away, automobile accidents can cause everything from back injuries and soft tissue damage to whiplash and other neck problems. Fortunately, our comprehensive chiropractic treatments can help loosen stiff and sore muscles, realign the spine and help facilitate faster healing after an accident.
Even in low-impact collisions, injuries can occur. One of the most common injuries is whiplash (a neck injury), which is brought about by rapid and jerking head movements. This condition can take months to heal, but our chiropractor, Dr. Watson can provide spinal manipulation, massage therapy, corrective exercises and a variety of other treatment options to heal realign joints, improve range-of-motion and eliminate pain. Through the most modern techniques and equipment available, we can easily treat and manage your symptoms.
Most car accident-related injuries cannot be seen, but this doesn’t mean you should ignore problems you may be facing. A lot of the damage occurs in muscles, ligaments and spinal discs, which can lead to scar tissue and pain down the road if left untreated.
Spinal damage can even cause chronic muscle pain, headaches, back spasms, disc degeneration, arthritis and other serious issues. But visiting a chiropractor and getting treatment as soon as possible after an accident can help to promote a faster and more efficient recovery period.
Both spinal alignment and massage therapy can go a long way to restoring your body back to normal after a car accident. It is time to consider chiropractic treatment in Federal Way, WA if you are experiencing any of these symptoms after an auto accident:
- Neck or back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Limited range of motion
- Blurry vision
