Car Accident Victims
Most often an automobile accident will not cause fractures or broken bones but rather soft tissue injuries. The muscles, the connective tissue that connects the muscles to the skin, ligaments, tendons, discs, all of these can be injured in a car accident. Chiropractic can manipulate and adjust to decrease swelling and muscle spasms while increasing the bio-mechanical component of the spine. Among the soft tissue techniques we use are massage type manipulation by hand, electrical therapies, ultrasounds, and others. In addition to chiropractic manipulation, the adjustment can help put the bones back in the right place allowing soft tissues to heal properly. This will aid not only right now but also long term. The whole idea is to help people who have suffered any sort of major trauma get back on the right track to a healthy lifestyle.
