Why Seek Chiropractic Care After an Auto Accident?

neck pain in driver seatAs a chiropractor with years of experience, Dr. Reid has seen many patients suffering from auto accidents. One of the most common issues people face after an accident is whiplash, stiffness, and soreness in the neck and back area. This happens when the vertebrae in the spine move out of their normal position due to the sudden jolt of the impact.

It’s essential to understand that even a minor accident or collision can cause these problems. That’s why I always recommend people seek chiropractic care as soon as possible after an accident. Chiropractors are trained to diagnose and treat these types of injuries,” said Dr. Reid.

Non-invasive, Natural & Effective

As many people don’t want to mask their pain with medication, which has many side effects, chiropractic care is a non-invasive and drug-free approach that can help alleviate pain and discomfort. Safe when performed by a licensed chiropractor like Dr. Reid, chiropractic adjustments can help reduce inflammation, improve range of motion, and ease pain following an auto accident.

The Importance of Seeking Care Right Away

Unfortunately, many people don’t seek chiropractic care after an accident. They may believe their pain will go away on its own, or that they don’t need any treatment. Delaying care can lead to long-term problems. If the vertebrae are not realigned, it can cause wear and tear on the joints and cartilage, which can lead to chronic pain and arthritis in the future.

That’s why Dr. Reid always encourages his patients to seek chiropractic care as soon as possible after an accident. The earlier you receive treatment, the easier it is to correct the problem. “As a chiropractor, I can help restore the normal position of the vertebrae, alleviate pain, and improve your range of motion,” he said.

Dr. Reid also recommends that patients follow a program of exercises and stretches to improve their mobility and prevent future injuries. “By working with me, you can recover from your accident and return to your normal activities without pain or discomfort,” he added.
