Auto accidents and slip and falls are some occurrences no one ever wants to be involved in, but being prepared for life’s sudden turn of events and being informed on treating your injuries is crucial.

We’d like to let you know how Chiropractic Care and Physical Medicine can benefit you after an accident.

Chiropractic Benefits

Chiropractic is a system of integrative medicine used for treatment of misalignments of the joints, especially those of the spinal column. There are many benefits to using Chiropractic Care after being involved in an accident. For starters, not all injuries you may receive in an accident are visible. Whiplash, for example, can take hours or days to occur and may get worse over time. Whiplash can also cause minor back injuries, ligament problems, and disc damage. Chiropractic care is also one of the many natural pain relievers. Spinal manipulations (adjustments) done by Chiropractors help release toxins and help breakdown scar tissue, which promotes the body to heal itself naturally and at a faster rate. Therefore, Chiropractic care reduces the probability of undergoing surgery and taking medications.

What is Physical Medicine?

Physical Medicine is a branch of medicine concerned with the treatment of disease by physical means and can help in alleviating chronic pain and discomfort. Based on the symptoms you may be experiencing due to your injuries there are various forms of diagnostic testing offered in order to assist in discovering the root issues of your pain– such as Electromyography (EMG), Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV), Muscular Ultrasound, and Vascular Testing. Based on the results of your test, doctors can determine which treatment(s) would best fit your needs.

Physical Medicine is beneficial due to it being a more personalized, in-depth approach to your specific needs based on your injuries and body.
