Choose Chiropractic Care for the Best Healing After Your Auto Accident

man after a car wreckAfter a car accident, you may wonder whether you need to see a chiropractor. The answer is yes, after you’ve been checked out at the hospital. If you’ve suffered whiplash or other untreated injuries, chiropractic care helps you heal properly and prevents further pain or problems down the road.

At Shippy Chiropractic, Dr. Shippy doesn’t just treat your pain and inflammation, he focuses on making sure the damaged tissue heals in the best way possible. By restoring proper motion in the neck, the new tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments) will lay down more appropriately during motion. In contrast, wearing a collar for six weeks results in no motion in the joint and healing with scar tissue that resembles the gristle in meat.

Why Do I Need Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is a holistic approach to health focused on the musculoskeletal and nervous system. Chiropractors use a variety of therapies, including manual adjustments, to help relieve pain and improve function. We also use cold laser therapy, electrical stimulation, and ultrasound to provide you with the best care.

If you’ve been in a car accident, we’ll get you in to see the doctor as soon as possible. Chiropractic is one of the few specialties specifically designed to address your injury or trauma site. We treat the underlying cause of your pain, not just the symptoms. If you’re experiencing pain or other symptoms, make an appointment with our doctor to see how he can help.

Untreated Injuries

Many people believe if they’re not experiencing pain after the crash, they don’t need medical care. Nothing could be further from the truth! Studies have shown that impacts at speeds as slow as 5 mph have produced whiplash injuries, which may lead to chronic pain and other problems. Symptoms from untreated injuries can take days, weeks, or even months to manifest.
