Grand Prairie Chiropractor Provides Pain Relief
After a car accident, many people suggest you see a chiropractor for pain relief. Those who have experienced chiropractic care know firsthand the benefits of working with your body to help its natural healing abilities. At Arlington Wellness Chiropractic Center in Arlington, TX, we treat several people who've been in car accidents each year.
Injuries Manifest after the Crash
Every car accident is different. You could suffer minor injuries or more complex, long, and involved ones that take months and multiple hospital visits to heal. In all cases, working with a chiropractor will reduce your inflammation, allow the fluid between your cells to start moving freely again, and relieve pressure on the nerve bundles that sit between your vertebrae.
Many people experience pain in their necks, heads, shoulders, backs, hips, and knees after an accident. Additionally, new or worsening headaches or migraines may be present, along with possible blurry vision that comes and goes. Loss of range of motion in movement is common, no matter which type of injury you sustained.
There are lots of soft-tissue injuries that don't appear until well after an accident. People often mistake these symptoms for stress, lack of sleep, or possible illness. They don't realize something is wrong until they become nauseous, stop seeing well, experience dizzy spells, or feel sudden and sharp pain with their movements.
Your First Visit with Us
When you first come to our office for chiropractic care, we take the time to learn all about your accident, where you're hurting now, where you were hurting before, what triggers your pain, and your pain levels. We want to know about your previous medical history and the medications or supplements you might be taking. We'll test your range of motion during your first visit and might even use X-rays to confirm a diagnosis. From there, we can pinpoint your injuries and craft a custom treatment plan specific to your needs.
Length of Treatment
Some patients only need one to three visits. Others will need more than that. Our chiropractor will let you know whether you need spinal adjustments, spinal decompression, electronic muscle stimulation, specific exercises done under our supervision, massage therapy, or a combination of these therapies. You'll also know precisely in what order each should be done and for how long.
