Chiropractic Plymouth MA Auto Accident

Even the least detrimental of car accidents can take quite the toll on you. At first there is disorientation, then there is recognition, and likely after that comes the pain. However, just because you are experiencing discomfort, doesn't necessarily mean you are going to be seeking out medical treatment, does it? After all, people having varying tolerances for pain or you may be more worried about other aspects of your life like how you are going to get to work or take your children to school without a vehicle. We get it.

However, it is imperative that we reiterate how important it is to seek medical attention once you have been involved in an accident. While you may think you can just 'shake it off,' this is likely not the case. Even being in a fender bender can lead to major bodily issues. Continue reading below to uncover the most common injuries that are caused by car accidents and what your Plymouth chiropractor can do to treat them.

The Most Common Injuries

There are plenty of injuries that can occur during an accident that will be blatantly obvious to you and to the medics who are treating you. These are things like scrapes, burns, broken bones, and cuts. However, there are also likely to be musculoskeletal injuries that can not be as easily identified. Some of the most common kinds of car accident injuries are internal including:

  • Whiplash
  • Herniated Disc
  • Bulging Disc
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Deep bruising of the muscles

Refusing treatment or avoiding it will only lead to greater pain down the road. Not only will your symptoms get worse and worse but you will also be extending your recovery time each day you wait to seek out professional care.

What Can A Chiropractor Do For Your Injuries?

Chiropractors can help with myriad of different ailments, including helping those with car accident injuries recover. The first step is up to you, however. Seek out a chiropractor in the Plymouth area, like the experts at Koenig Chiropractic. You should know up front that your chiropractor may want to take some x-rays so that they can get a better idea of what it happening with your spine before they make your treatment plan. This will not only determine what can of treatment you will be receiving but also how long your treatment will last. Your chiropractor will also ask you a number of routine questions when you first see him/her. These questions will focus on what type of pain you experiencing as well as where it is located and what the severity is.

From this point on, your chiropractor will work to choose the very best treatments for your specific case. While spinal manipulation is almost always used on patients who have spinal injuries from an automobile accident, there are other forms of treatment that can help as well, such as:

  • Massage therapy
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Hot-cold therapy
  • Electrical stimulation of the muscles
