Many of our patients over the years have been victims of auto accidents. If you suffered an auto accident injury, you need to be examined as soon as possible by our chiropractor at Lone Tree Chiropractic in Lone Tree, CO. Even if you believe that your auto accident injury is minor, the longer that you ignore it, the more likely it becomes that a chronic pain condition will develop. After a comprehensive examination, our chiropractor will diagnose and begin treating your injury before it has the opportunity to become worse.
The Treatment of a Hidden Auto Accident Injury
Lacerations, bruising, and fractures are all readily diagnosed. Torn muscles, tendons, or ligaments aren't so easy to pinpoint, especially when the injuries involve tiny microscopic tears. Even x-rays are unable to show such injuries. Auto accident injuries may result in pain and a loss of range of motion. That is the way the body naturally reacts to a physically traumatic event. Care and treatment from our chiropractor coupled with related therapies will help to reduce your tissue inflammation, prevent scar tissue from developing, and restore your range of motion and functionality of the affected area.
Chiropractic Massage Therapy
Both chiropractic care and massage therapy can be used to treat patients that are suffering from an auto accident injury. Both treatments avoid having to rely on pain medication or surgery to provide relief. Massage is an ancient treatment modality. It relaxes the muscles that are tight or in spasm and increases blood flow that carries nutrients to the injured areas of the body. Massage therapy is also known to cause the brain and pituitary gland to release endorphins that have their own painkilling effects. When massage therapy is received immediately before a spinal adjustment, that adjustment becomes easier for both the chiropractor and the patient because affected muscles are relaxed.
Our objective is to help you overcome your auto accident injury as soon as possible. Our chiropractor might recommend specific stretching and strengthening home exercises to assist with your recovery. Home exercises and strong muscles help prevent injuries from becoming worse or chronic.
