As the opioid crisis in America worsens, it’s natural to want to avoid pain medication unless absolutely necessary. Some doctors may tell you that car accident injuries would be a case where drugs are “absolutely necessary,” but a chiropractor would disagree.
Chiropractors specialize in providing patients with natural treatment techniques that allow the body to heal itself.
When you are in a car accident, the force of the collision can throw your spine and other joints out of alignment. By adjusting and realigning these joints, a chiropractor can relieve much of the pain associated with an auto accident injury. Any subsequent pain and inflammation can be dealt with through a medical massage and/or E-stim therapy.
Painkillers—even over-the-counter options—are never without risk. Chiropractic care helps you avoid unpleasant side effects and truly heal from your injury.
