A car accident injury may result in whiplash, back pain as well as pain in the shoulders which can all occur following a collision. While the pain from these injuries is immediate for some patients, for others, signs and symptoms of injury not appear for days or weeks. A chiropractor can assess if a patient has sustained an injury or possibly prevent more serious injuries from occurring in the future.
Chiropractic Treatment for Pain Relief Following a Car Accident Injury
Exercises are another part of chiropractic treatment and wellness care following a car accident injury. Dr. Ellison teaches patients exercises that they should do at home to complement the in-office adjustments they receive. The exercises restore the range of motion to the injured area and help reduce swelling and pain. Once the patient is healed, continuing the exercises is important for wellness care.
