When you are hurt in a car accident, Zarrabian Chiropractic can help. Our practicing chiropractor in Campbell provides treatment after an auto accident for patients throughout the greater San Jose area.
Many people assume if they don’t feel pain immediately after an auto accident that they are okay. Unfortunately, several hours, days, or even months later, you may begin to feel the results of the collision. When you are in pain because of an accident, chiropractic treatment can help you get your life back.
When to See a Chiropractor After an Auto Accident
If you are involved in a car accident, you must seek emergency medical attention right away for serious injuries such as broken bones, cuts, bleeding, etc. It is vital that you report any pain you are feeling. Even if you don’t think it is significant, after the adrenaline has worn off, you may realize you feel much worse than you thought. Soon after this, you should see a chiropractor to help manage the pain from injuries such as whiplash which is one of the most common types of injuries experienced after an accident
Whiplash can affect everything along the spine but is most often felt in the head and neck. Symptoms of whiplash might be felt immediately, but frequently take time. These symptoms may include, but are not limited to:
- Blurred vision
- Limited range of motion
- Shoulder pain
- Arm pain
Whiplash can also cause other muscle injuries, spine injuries, and disc damage.
Another misconception is that you need to be involved in a high-speed accident to experience injuries like whiplash. However, changes in speed as little as 2-3 miles per hour can result in injuries.
To prevent unnecessary pain and the potential for additional injuries, see a chiropractor as soon as possible. Additionally, in the event of auto injuries, Zarrabian Chiropractic accepts attorney lien cases, which means we can provide care at no cost to the victim.
How Chiropractic Care Helps After an Auto Injury
Chiropractic treatment helps you heal after a car accident by looking at the cause of your pain and working to find a solution. Treatment takes time. You will see the chiropractor several times a week at first to get your spine adjusted. Over time you will feel more relief in between sessions. Treatment focuses on improving your circulation to allow the tissue in your body to heal its injuries. As you begin to heal, you will find that adjustments last longer and your muscles aren’t as tight and stiff.
Natural Relief with Chiropractic Care
Treatment at a chiropractic office is all-natural. You won’t receive prescription medication, and it can be used with other treatments. We will give your body the tools needed to heal from your auto accident through massage, hot and cold therapy, ultrasound, and manual therapy. You can still take your medication prescribed by another provider when you get chiropractic care.
