westminster-colorado-chiropractic-personal injury accident-infographicWhen you have the unfortunate circumstance of being the injured victim of a personal injury accident, your top priority should be seeking quality medical treatment at a chiropractic clinic.

Choosing the right chiropractor for treatment can influence the outcome of your physical well-being, financial compensation, and overall personal injury claim.

Chiropractors treat 33% of all accident victims, which is appropriate because most accidents result in injuries like whiplash, soft tissue injuries, musculoskeletal injuries, and cervical, thoracic and lumbar strains and sprains.  Chiropractors treat more patients than any other specialty and is the only profession trained specifically to treat these types of soft tissue injuries and our ability to help these patients is unparalleled.

Common Types of Personal Injury Accidents

  • Car Accidents
  • Truck Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Slip, Trip, and Fall Accident
  • Work Place Accident
  • Treat Pain, Restore Mobility, Strengthen and Stabilize

Many victims experience some type of injury after an accident. Whether your injuries present pain symptoms or not, a chiropractic doctor can treat your injuries so you can restore your mobility, strengthen your muscles, and stabilize your body once again.  The most commonly affected areas of the body are the neck and spine after a personal injury accident takes place.

A car crash is a very stressful life event, especially if you’re in pain. When your body is exposed to trauma, it goes into a flight or fight response, which can result in anxiety, depression, and stress. A 2011 study used PET scans to look at the brains of people who received chiropractic adjustments for neck pain. They found that those patients had reduced brain activity in the parts of the brain responsible for pain processing and stress reactions. They also had significantly lower levels of cortisol, indicating reduced stress. Participants also reported lower pain scores and a better quality of life after treatment. Reducing your overall level of stress is important, because, left untreated, stress can also slow recovery time and increase your risk of developing chronic pain.

Why see a chiropractor after a personal injury accident?

Victims of personal injuries often have trouble completing regular daily tasks and find that they simply can’t move the way they used to.  For individuals who already suffer from chronic pain and soreness – such as the elderly – their pain symptoms increase, worsening their pre-developed injuries.  Visiting a chiropractor will improve your joint mobility and decrease the chance of suffering from long-term soft tissue damage.

Even victims who do not immediately experience pain should still make it a top priority to make an appointment with a chiropractor. Many injuries do not cause soreness, stiffness, discomfort, or pain until days or even weeks after an accident occurs.

Early care and treatment will provide a chance for successful healing and a faster recovery. Even the most minor types of accidents could cause severe injuries if the body was pushed, stretched, or twisted in an abnormal manner.  Your chiropractor will create a specialized treatment plan to help you heal quickly and correctly.

At Discover Health and Wellness, our experienced team of doctors will fully assess your injuries and create a personalized care and treatment plan just for you. With the use of spinal adjustments, we will restore your muscles and spine to their fully functioning ability.
