A car accident is the last thing you want to happen, whether you're running to the store, coming from work, or on the way to a special event. It can prevent you from reaching your destination, cost you money, and, worst of all, cause you pain. Fortunately, pain and other symptoms won't be problems once you visit our chiropractors in Plano at Willow Bend Chiropractic.
The impact of an accident can throw your back out of alignment, causing subluxations. As a result of this personal injury, you could experience pain, numbness, tingling, or burning. Sometimes, it'll even extend down an extremity. But chiropractic care, particularly an adjustment, can correct the subluxation and promote healing. This is also beneficial if you have neck pain. However, chiropractic care using an adjustment for this problem will focus on the cervical spine.
After a car accident, you could find yourself with limited range of motion in your neck, back, or extremities. With whiplash, for instance, it'll affect your neck. In this case, and even in an instance where you have pain and other symptoms, you may benefit from exercise therapy, which consists of our practitioner guiding you through exercises that work a particular body part to enhance circulation, improve flexion, and more.
Laser therapy consists of using light energy directed at a particular body part that you're experiencing problems with, such as your lower back. It has the ability to help regenerate tissue, repair it, and reduce pain. For instance, the laser therapy may reduce inflammation, ultimately resulting in less pain.
Let's say you have a herniated disc after a car accident. Our chiropractor might recommend you undergo spinal decompression therapy. For this treatment, your spine is stretched, safely and non-painfully. As a result, the sensitive discs between the vertebrae have a chance to heal.
You might not have a serious injury but may just feel generally sore after an auto accident. Your muscles could feel achy. Or, you could have a more traumatic injury. Either way, our chiropractor may recommend massage therapy -- a treatment that can facilitate healing and ease your discomfort. During this treatment, a massage therapist will target the tissue deep within the spot that's bothering you. Ultimately, the treatment will encourage blood flow to help with healing and ease your symptoms. It also loosens tight tissue.
