An accident can be a traumatic experience- crushing metal, breaking glass, and the potential for injury all make an impact. The problem is that your physical symptoms after a car accident may not be noticeable until after you walk away from the scene. Just because you feel okay after an accident doesn’t mean you are. A car accident is a traumatic event that may cause physical injuries that need rehabilitation.
Delayed onset back pain after an auto injury is common, and could be a symptom of a spinal injury, herniated disc, or even a soft tissue injury. Luckily, the doctors at BC + PT are equipped to help you with any issue related to your neck, back or spine!
The all-around care you need
Rehabilitation after an accident requires all body parts to work together. The primary goals of any treatment options should include achieving a full range of motion, gaining strength, experiencing proper spinal alignment, and alleviating pain. One of the benefits of choosing BC + PT is that we are a team of chiropractors AND physical therapists that, if needed, can both help with rehab for structural, spinal injuries as well as the soft tissue injuries. Bonus: We offer both chiro and PT together out of our North Buffalo and Lovejoy locations!
Chiropractic care after an accident
Being involved in a car accident is one of the primary reasons people seek the assistance of a chiropractor. Following such an incident, promoting the healing process is crucial. For this to occur, the affected area’s bones and muscles must be cared for together. Spinal manipulation and chiropractic treatment can be helpful in the healing and recovery process. Chiropractic methods also enhance mobility while also promoting proper alignment and alleviating pain. Although rehabilitation usually focuses solely on the affected body area, chiropractic aims to holistically heal all of your body’s systems.
When a person gets into an accident, the force of the impact may cause the body to be misaligned. Although victims of a car crash might have an immediate injury, such misalignment can cause related injuries, limited range of motion, and severe pain at a later time. Patients should consider seeking chiropractic care through recovery and afterward.
Physical Therapy after an accident
Physical therapy aims to strengthen and retrain the specific body muscles affected. It can improve the range of motion and movement after an acute injury. The therapists at BC + PT are trained in a few different modalities that can assist in the treatment for your injury. Chiropractic care can loosen tight muscles, alleviate inflammation and pain, and promote overall healing. While chiropractic adjustments to your spine can help release tension, physical therapy is there to help relax the body and enable better blood circulation through specific exercises, myofascial technique, e-stim, and ultrasound.
