Getting in a car accident can completely disrupt your life, regardless of the severity of the incident. In some car accidents, you may notice immediate discomfort and injuries. However, in other incidents, you may not notice injuries or discomfort for several days after the event. This is completely normal. During a stressful event, your body produces high levels of adrenaline, which helps you to get through the incident. Once that adrenaline has worn off and you go through your day-to-day activities, you may notice injuries and body aches that manifested from the auto accident.

Luckily, our car accident chiropractor and medical team at Integra Medical can help. Dr. Brice Neff offers auto injury treatments in Gilbert to help injured patients get relief after a car accident.

Common car-accident conditions include:

  • Whiplash

  • Headaches

  • Neck pain

  • Back pain

  • Muscle strain

  • Ligament sprains

  • Spinal instability

  • Numbness in the body

  • Tingling in the body

 

If you are experiencing any of these conditions, moving forward with chiropractic care is a smart option. Leaving these symptoms to go untreated often leads to chronic pain and other health issues. Chiropractic care is not only a natural, drug-free treatment option, but also sees exceptional results. Here are four of the many benefits that people see with chiropractic treatment for auto accident injuries.

  1. Reduced pain

    The whiplash experienced in auto accidents can do a lot of damage to your body, including your muscles and connective tissue. Muscular tension is not only painful on its own, but can also lead to tension headaches and migraines. After an assessment of your spine and tension of the muscles, our Gilbert chiropractor can adjust your spine and facilitate the release of tense muscles. You may even feel a significant decrease in pain after one chiropractic treatment.

  2. Reduced inflammation in the body

    It isn’t uncommon for people to experience micro-tears in the ligaments and muscles as the result of an auto injury. These micro-tears tend to produce a lot of pain, and are the main reason why people wake up in the middle of the night in excruciating pain following a car crash. Our chiropractic team at Integra Medical will be able to manipulate your spine to help your body release anti-inflammatory substances to help with healing these micro-tears and other acute injuries.

  3. Restored range of motion

    The pain, soreness, and stiffness that results from an auto injury can restrict mobility of your body, and can even be debilitating. It can be difficult to turn your head or move your body while your muscles are inflamed. Dr. Brice Neff and team work to mobilize your spine, working to restore proper range of motion and allowing your body to start the healing process more quickly.

  4.  Realigned spine and musculoskeletal system

    Auto injuries often cause our musculoskeletal system to be knocked out of proper alignment, creating not only back and neck pain, but pain, soreness, and stiffness throughout the entire body. Instead of prescribing pain medication to cover up symptoms, we address the underlying issue and work to relieve pressure on the muscles and nerves while bringing alignment back to your spine and musculoskeletal system.

 

Our chiropractor and medical team can help you regain strength and decrease discomfort and joint inflammation while improving your range of motion. We will work with you to alleviate your symptoms and feel comfortable again.

In order to do this, we create a treatment plan based on your unique needs after a thorough assessment. Based on what we discover, we will then move forward with spinal decompression and chiropractic manipulations to your spine to help aid discomfort, reduce tension in the body, and relieve pain. We know that every person and accident is unique, so we make careful and thoughtful decisions moving forward with your treatment. We may also recommend specific exercises and provide wellness tips that can help aid with pain management and the healing process
