Chiropractic Treatment for Car Accidents in Cottage Grove

chiropractic treatment for car accidents

If you are suffering from back or neck pain after even the most minor of car accidents (or even if you feel no pain at all) it is entirely possible you have sustained whiplash. Without a thorough assessment from a Cottage Grove chiropractor, whiplash can lead to a lifetime of debilitating chronic pain.

Knocking or “whipping” the spine out of alignment can strain the neck muscles and cause intense pain and discomfort. Painkillers are a stopgap measure in controlling pain, it it's important to get to the cause of the condition.

Chiropractors treat the underlying spinal (or whiplash) injury by relieving pressure on your tendons, nerves, and muscles. This alignment of the spine coupled with corrective exercises helps heal even serious damage to your musculoskeletal system.

Following trauma, your body naturally tries to immobilize the injured area. A protective spasms can help to immobilize damaged joints and muscles. This is a normal healthy reaction, however, if function is not restored within 4-8 weeks, scar tissue can form and can make full recovery extremely difficult.

Chiropractors know that a multi-faceted treatment program is best for you and can help you get better sooner.


Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic Adjustments return joints to an aligned and proper position and can also reduce pressure on “pinched” nerves.


Ice and Medications

Ice and anti-inflammatory medications such as Advil or Motrin can offer short-term relief, but often do not address the source of your pain. Ice and medication can aid in pain relief, but should not be seen as a fix-all.
