Chiropractic Plymouth MA Auto Accident

Were you recently in a car accident? Not only can car accidents be traumatizing, but they can also wreak havoc on your body. Even if the accident that you were involved in was minor, it could have taken its toll on your body. Often times, people think that their bodies feel okay following an accident, only to experience pain later on. The best way to take care of your body is to make an appointment with a chiropractor. Let's explore some of the benefits of visiting a Plymouth chiropractor following an accident.

You Could Be Injured Without Even Knowing It

When you are in a car accident, injuries such as broken bones and cuts are easy to identify. However, some injuries such as whiplash may not initially be apparent because your adrenaline levels rapidly spike after an injury. When your adrenaline levels are unusually high, you may not even feel any symptoms of pain. Once the body starts to calm down, symptoms of pain and inflammation can emerge after a few days or even longer. When you visit a chiropractor, you can start your recovery immediately. Chiropractors are able to gather your medical history, perform a physical exam, and determine the type of treatment that would benefit you.

Less Invasive Treatments

The worst thing that you can do following an accident is to wait to until your pain is severe to seek medical attention. Back surgery in particular can be costly, invasive and oftentimes ineffective. For these reasons, invasive and costly surgeries should be the very last resort to help alleviate your pain.

On the other hand, chiropractors use gentle spinal manipulation techniques to help realign your spinal joints, reduce your pain, and promote your healing.

Avoid Pain Medications

Following an accident, over the counter pain medications such as ibuprofen might be necessary to alleviate inflammation. Doctors commonly prescribe prescription painkillers to patients suffering from pain, which provides some short-term relief while masking the symptoms of pain. However, the goal of chiropractors is to eliminate your pain by directly addressing the source of pain. Chiropractor use spinal manipulation techniques to directly address the source of pain without masking it. Prescription pain medication can be highly addictive and affect your digestion and quality of sleep as well.

It Is Safe

Are you concerned about your chiropractor harming you during a treatment? You can rest easy when receiving your chiropractic treatments because chiropractors are medically trained professionals. Not only do chiropractors undergo years of training and education, but they must also pass extensive tests and state licensing exams.

It May Be Covered By Insurance

Many people shy away from visiting the chiropractor because they are concerned with the costs. However, many insurance companies will extend their coverage to include chiropractic treatment. Therefore, you may not have any reasons at all NOT to visit a chiropractor following an accident.
