Chiropractic Helps You Recover Faster
Because a chiropractic school curriculum teaches students how to treat back and neck pain without pharmaceutical help, a doctor of chiropractic is uniquely positioned to help people who have been injured (i.e. athletic, work, car accident injuries) avoid the prescription drug cycle. Don’t get me wrong, pharmaceutical therapy has its place: But in many cases, prescription or over-the-counter drugs are meant to be a temporary chemical solution to symptoms for a person who is also taking steps to correct the cause of their symptoms via physical solution, with both the help of a trained professional (i.e. chiropractor, PT, nutritionist, trainer) and healthy lifestyle modifications to daily habits (i.e. physical activity, diet, social engagement, mental health practices)
Using a variety of drug-free techniques, from spinal adjustments to electric muscle stimulation to rehabilitative exercises, chiropractors can:
Relieve pain. Soft-tissue injuries may take months to fully heal, but a chiropractor can often provide pain relief much quicker than that. In both work-related and car accident victims report up to an 80 percent reduction in discomfort after just a few weeks of chiropractic care when compared to car accident victims who went untreated.
Restore mobility. The soreness and stiffness from a sports, work or car accident injury can inhibit movement due to the slow development of sub-dermal scar tissue. Chiropractors work with patients to help get them moving again as quickly as possible so they can regain full range of motion before scar tissue develops.
Support long-term healing. The muscle weakness and compensated movement patterns resulting from an injury due to a sports, work or car accident can leave patients vulnerable to re-injury. Chiropractic care often involves rehabilitative exercises that improve flexibility and strengthen the muscles surrounding the spine. This is a critical element that many providers will neglect because of its time-consuming nature; therefore, it’s important to choose a doctor that will commit to providing all of the care that your injury deserves.
Visiting a doctor of chiropractic as soon as possible after an auto accident can boost a patient’s chances of making a fully recovery—without resorting to prescription drugs or surgical procedures later in life.
