Millions of people are living with chronic pain and dysfunction due to auto accidents. Seeking chiropractic care following an auto accident can reduce pain and long-term injury. At Elite Chiropractic, we specialize in treating auto accident injuries through non-invasive therapies designed to restore function to the body. When you visit our Wenatchee chiropractic office, you can expect to receive a tailor-made plan for your individual needs. We focus on going beyond the symptoms to identify the root source of pain or dysfunction and implementing natural healing modalities.
Auto Accident Injuries
While your vehicle may not have sustained serious damage, that does not mean your body has not. Even minor fender-benders can cause injuries. In an accident, the muscles are suddenly forced and extended beyond their normal range of motion, leading to soft tissue damage. Minor injuries from accidents can take several weeks, even months, before patients start showing injury symptoms. Some common symptoms of auto accident injuries include;
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Blurred vision
- Limited mobility
- Reduced range of motion
Healing From an Auto Accident
It is common for individuals to avoid treatment after an auto accident as moving can intensify pain symptoms. However, failure to move and start treating the injuries can lead to long-term pain and dysfunction. When the body begins healing from an auto accident, scar tissue starts developing. Scar tissue will lead to stiffness and can damage the muscles. We use Class IV laser treatment and manual manipulation to focus on scar tissue and specific areas to increase circulation, decrease inflammation, and break up scar tissue.
Chiropractic Care for Auto Accident Injuries
Elite Chiropractic will identify the source of injury and create a treatment plan that doesn’t mask the symptoms. We identify specific aspects causing pain and begin a treatment method to reduce inflammation throughout the body and promote healing. We often find patients struggle with micro-tears in the ligaments and muscles after a car accident. These small micro-tears can increase in pain and severity if they are not treated. We implement healing techniques designed to correct structural shifts found in the spine, allowing for proper range of motion to occur. We also focus on spinal decompression therapy to slowly lengthen and decompress the spine, which repositions bulging discs and reduces pressure on pinched nerves.
