When involved in a car accident we don’t always immediately think of the long-term effects if can have on our bodies. If we can escape the incident without major injuries that require a hospital stay, we may not even think twice about the injuries we can’t immediately see or feel, instead of popping an over the counter pain medication. Thoughts of damage control to our vehicle not to mention insurance issues may cloud our minds.
Visiting the Pompano Beach car accident chiropractor may not even appear in our thoughts for days or weeks after any form of car accident, it should, however, be the first line of defense once we have been cleared from the hospital of any minor or major injuries.
Understanding the dynamics of a car accident and how it affects our bodies helps us further understand the need for a Pompano Beach car accident chiropractor afterward.
When we are involved in a car accident, small or big, in a stopped or fast-moving vehicle, the unseen impact can be subtle but chronic and long lasting in nature. The muscles tense, the joints flex and the bones and other bodily parts might bounce or be thrown about in the vehicle depending on the situation.
Most of us might think that if we wear a seat belt or have airbags, we are safe, which is most of the time true. These safety mechanisms are designed to save lives and minimize severe injuries, but they will not prevent a person from receiving any moderate or minor injuries to the body.
Whether the car accident was 5 years or 5 days ago a car accident chiropractor works to put your musculoskeletal system back in place. Through manipulation and TENS therapy as well as other techniques of LLLT (including MLS Robotic Laser) and hot or cold therapy work to ease the inflammation that accompanies the car accident injury. They help the Pompano Beach car accident chiropractor put your bones back in alignment where they may have been thrown out of place during impact and ease the pain and stress your body may have felt from the initial injury.
In performing these techniques, Pompano Beach chiropractors aid in the recovering and healing process of the body, therefore, assisting in a complete recovery of conditions associated with a car accident which can become chronic in nature if left untreated.
If your car accident was a year ago or just yesterday a Pompano Beach car accident chiropractic visit can put you on the road to complete recovery faster, preventing long term effects of the condition.
