Car accidents are some of the most common types of accidents in the world, and also among the most likely to cause injuries. These injuries can range from severe to quite mild. Even if the injuries aren't obvious, they can often still cause severe, chronic, disabling pain. This is most common with soft tissue injuries, such as to the ligaments, tendons, and muscles. If you find yourself in this position due to a car accident, you will want to seek out relief from that pain as soon as possible, to get your life back to what it was, and be able to enjoy things without pain again. The good news is that help for this type of injury and its associated pain is available. Just contact the experts at Islands Chiropractic and Massage, your Gilbert Chiropractor.
Even if you don't have any obvious injuries, your soft tissues can still be damaged by a car accident. When a car stops or starts, or moves in any direction with a lot of force, it can pull on those soft tissues, causing inflammation, irritation, sprains, tears, pulls, whiplash, and even mis-alignment of the spine the pushes on the soft tissues. Any of these things can cause a lot of pain without ever giving an outward appearance of an injury.
You can be in pain for a long time without ever realizing you've been injured. You may just chalk it up to aches and pains from your normal daily activities. Or, if you know you're injured, you may think the pain will eventually go away on its own, and you just deal with it for months or years, until it becomes a part of your everyday life, and you forgot how it even started. Suffering becomes the norm. With help available at your Gilbert chiropractor, there is no reason to live with the chronic pain of a soft tissue injury from a car accident.
There are a variety of methods your chiropractor can use to relieve your pain permanently. Usually, it takes more than one visit, but after enough visits (which varies by each individual person), you will experience real and permanent relief from the pain. Chiropractic care is more than just spinal adjustments, though those can be quite beneficial if the spine is out of alignment and/or pushing on a nerve. Chiropractors also use therapeutic massage, physical therapy, spinal decompression, and therapeutic exercises you can do at home to help strengthen and heal your injury in between visits to the chiropractor.
With chiropractic care, you can get permanent relief from the pain without the use of drugs, which can be addictive and make you less alert and more quiet and slow than usual. Chiropractic care is non-invasive and it works, which is why so many people use it. You can use it, too. Let the trained chiropractors at Islands Chiropractic and Massage help you get back to a pain-free life and total wellness.
